Schier Shoes Photographed by Jason Eric Hardwick


Lately we have been dreaming of an exotic African getaway. And then, like magic, the latest lookbook from Namibian heritage brand Herbert Schier’s appeared in our inbox, and now we’re stirring even more. Shot by Jason Eric Hardwick, he takes us into the Namibian desert for a look at how the locals style their vellies.

Velskoen, pronounced “fell-skoon” and known colloquially as “vellies”, are inspired by the footwear of the Khoikhoi tribe and crafted using raw materials such as wild kudu, springbok, oryx and pigskin. Kudu skin yields amazing durable leather and suede that ages exceptionally well.
