This Just In: Velskoen Desert Boots @ Hickoree’s.

An undisputed classic summer shoe, hell, year round shoe, is the desert boot. Clark’s may be the obvious choice but consider these. Velskoen desert boots, “vellies”. Hand-made in the coastal town of Swakopmund, Namibia, at the Herbert Schier factory. From Hickoree’s, “They were first made in the 1600s by members of the Dutch East India Co., inspired by the footwear of the Khoisan tribe.”
Available exclusively at Hickorees in brown, black and red at $125 a pop.Click over to read, as Paul Harvey would say, the rest of the story.
