Harvey

Regular price £255.00

This hybrid Boot is named after a trusted friend, Harvey, a wire-haired Jack Russell, who is sadly no longer with us but gave and shared 100s of memories. He was the key member of countless long walks, unforgettable fishing trips and integral in protecting us from the ‘Big Bad’postman. Harvey put numerous shoes through their paces and finding the balance between style and functionality was a real inspiration for this Boot, keen to create the perfect shoe that is fashionable and can survive those unexpected tricky terrains. 

 

The Harvey is crafted from the finest textured 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 Norwegian stitch between the upper and the rugged sole gives the added benefit of being water resistant, allowing you to never think twice taking your best friend on his daily walk.  

 

This Boot will be available in half sizes and please feel welcome to pre-order yours at gj@vvsleather.co.uk to avoid any disappointment.

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.
