Now, I am not one to jump off my favorites to a another competing brand, but these Herbert Schier takes on the desert boot are just on point. “Velskoen, pronounced “fell-skoon” and known colloquially as “vellies,” are the ancestor of the modern-day desert boot. They were first made in the 1600s by members of the Dutch East India Co., inspired by the footwear of the Khoisan tribe. These days in South Africa and Namibia, hard-working vellies are worn by all types, from laborers to bush rangers to university students.” Hickoree’s has them. (secretforts)
