Put your best foot forward while keeping it proudly South African with our round-up of places to buy shoes locally. Whether you are looking for sandals, boots or pumps, these brands have got a wide selection to suit your style.

Most of these shoes are leather and some are even handmade! While we wouldn’t call any of these shoes budget buys, they are investment pieces that will last season after season as they won’t go out of style. Plus you can feel great about supporting local fashion and small businesses.

Stonecamp Leather

Stonecamp Leather not only makes great leather handbags but also offers shoes. They have just launched a range of vellies but we have a soft spot for The Laura, R750-R850, which comes in a range of colours including rose gold.

Blue Betty

While Blue Betty offers sandals, boots and vellies, we love The Dapper, R700 because they are unique and can be paired with most outfits.

Jane Sews

Jane Sews makes beautifully tailored clothes as well as a growing shoe collection. You can get sandals, pumps as well as slip-ons, but we like the Chelsea boot, R1599.

Bear Bear & Me

Made in Cape Town, Bear Bear & Me not only makes shoes for ladies but also for children. We like their brogue collection, R899 because not only do they look comfy but they are also practical.

Kaali Leather Apparel

We love the Jodie Sandal, R650 currently on sale, as it can be paired with your favourite skirt, shorts or even jeans. These will quickly become a summer sandal staple.

Tsonga

Another favourite for all types of shoes and bags, Tsonga has a great range of leather wedges and high heels. We like the high heel wedge sandal in black or hazel, R999.
