Info

The Go anywhere, Do anything Veldskoen

Vellies were originally designed to withstand the harshest arid climates, here at Jim Green we have taken no short cuts in production, to make sure our vellies live up to this age-old design.
We truly believe that the Jim Green vellie is the best value for money vellie available in South Africa. With the quality of materials used and our ability to resole them they will be with you for many years to come.
  • Manufactured with a single layer of 2.2mm full grain leather
  • The traditional vellie – South Africa’s most loved shoe
  • Thermoplastic toe puff and a heel stiffener for extra support
  • Insole board is secured to the upper with a double stitched 2.2mm braided nylon cord
  • Sole is made from a genuine rubber
  • This boot can be re soled
The best way to preserve your Jim Greens is through regular and correct polishing. Water, heat and wear remove the natural oil from the leather, so when the tiny fibres dry out they become hard, brittle and break easily, thereby shorten the life of the leather.
For our leather boots we recommend any natural shoe polish found at your local store. For our suede options we suggest light brushing to remove dirt and a scotchguard for longer protection.
After a long day in wet conditions and you requiring your boots early the next morning, the worst possible solution is to artificially dry your boots. Leather fibres burn easily – especially when wet and therefore should never be left near a heater, placed in your oven or left in direct sunlight. For the best results, footwear should be dried out slowly and never subjected to any extreme heat. Should you work in constantly wet conditions, it is best to alternate between two or more pairs of our Jim Green boots.
We realise that buying footwear online is a daunting task and we are often asked to recommend a size by new Jim Green customers. If you happen to purchase a pair of Jim Green boots online and they do not fit, we will happily exchange them for you. If the measurements fall in-between the lengths provided, we do offer half sizes on certain styles. We can recommend a size but we can’t guarantee the fit.

    What a bargain!! Super comfortable true to size (added Dr scholls insert under original insole to take up some space for my narrow 12.5 foot)

    Breakin is pretty quick and the quality of construction is unmatched at this price!
    Bought all four colors in this style and they were of all the same top quality of build!!

    Very special shoes, just got mine and at first I thought they were wider than anything I have and I kind of didn’t like it. However after looking and wearing them a bit I start seeing them as “cute” and something unique, will definitely enjoy wearing them. Most importantly my wife liked them, so got the highest approval;)

    The quality seems to be top, well made, with unique style. Don’t think they’ll require long break in, comfortable out of box.

    Sizing is true (my Brannock is 9.5E), and 9.5 fits well. As mentioned the width is very generous, lots of room, although not sure how guys with narrow feet would like it.

    Looking forward to wear them more and check how they feel long term.

    I think they’re great value and would recommend for all.

    So far I am very impressed with this shoe. It is made from quality materials and there is attention to detail. For me the shoe was true to size and has the same fit as a pair of Redwings. I plan on ordering an additional pair and will re-review these after about 6 months of abuse.

    I am very impressed with the quality of these shoes. They are made of quality materials and with great attention to detail. As far as fit goes they run true to size with a fit comparable to Redwings.

    I ordered the Vellie (dark brown) and Razorback (Tan). I ordered a size 10 but required a half size smaller. Both styles fit very similar and you can confidently order the same size in each style once you know your size. The leather is thick and very high quality. I initiated an exchange for size. I was contacted by customer service and the exchange was super smooth. A individual named Gareth contacted me, it is very obvious they care about their customers. Thank you Gareth for your help.

    The style is quite unique with a classic design that will never go our of style. I imagine these will look better with age as the leather develops a nice patina. Buy them, you will love them.
