Harlock

Regular price £225.00

Our flagship boot carries the proud name of the Smith family – originally Harlock-Smith in earlier generations. The boot is crafted from a single piece of leather for uncompromising durability, with the added benefit of assembly by way of the Goodyear Welted technique. This affords you the option to rebuild a brand new boot with the original leather after years of reliable service.

 The sole, with its dual layers of leather and rubber, is selected for its supreme comfort, and is available in half sizes. The round toe gives you the freedom of pairing this boot with your favorite pair of jeans just as well as something more formal.

 

 

"No one is useless in the world who lightens the burden of other" - Charles Dickens

 

The Van Velze & Smith story is one of careful evolution. Whilst development of our own brand is very important, the opportunity to help others is a challenge we relish.

Up until the age of 13, South African children play rugby barefoot. The poverty and suffering through parts of South Africa is no secret and means many children aren't able to continue playing rugby after the age of 13 as their parents cannot afford the necessary footwear.

Rugby's core values are all based around teamwork, comradery and access for all, as such we at Van Velze & Smith want to uphold these values.


This season, for every pair of boots sold, VVS pledges to donate a pair of rugby boots to a child with the same dream as 13 year old GJ dreaming of a career as a professional sportsman.
