We’re just gonna come right out and say it – globalization is awesome. Phones from Korea and China, brides from Russia and now shoes from Namibia. Swakopmund, Namibia to be exact. That’s right, Namibia, as in the western coast of Africa. The eight Damara gentlemen that work in the Herbert Schier factory assemble these “Velskoen” handmade shoes using vegetable-dyed Kudu leather. Apparently the Kudu is a large native antelope (even though it sounds like a creature from Star Wars or Harry Potter) culled for population purposes and ultimately to be turned into a sweet pair of boots. The suede upper is combined with a leather foot bed – completely by hand. Hurry boy, they’re waiting at Hickorees for you, but don’t wait too long because they’re gonna sell out fast.
