A trusted style staple – the desert boot – has been enjoying a bit of a fashion resurgence.
But before the desert boot were ‘Vellies’ – inspired by the southern African Khoikhoi tribe’s footwear before being then adapted by westerners in the 1600’s. The rest as they say, is history.
Established in 1938, Schier Shoes have continued with the artisan approach. Sticking to the traditional production process, the story goes that eight gentlemen in Swakopmund, Namibia make 20 pairs a day; painstakingly hand sewing each pair, the result are some badass shoes.
Available in an array of finishes and colours, these neon toe capped beauties are just some of the many eye-catching numbers.
