The Kaya Boot is Brother Vellies take on a traditional Chelsea boot with a slightly tapered toebox and higher heel. In rich moss crocodile (that's a neutral, right?) and vegetable-tanned, recycled leather, you'll be reaching for these daily.
Heel height is 2 inches, and entire boot height is 9 inches. We recommend sizing up if you have a wider foot.
Brother Vellies was founded by Aurora James with the goal of introducing the rest of the world to her favorite traditional African footwear, while also creating and sustaining artisanal jobs within Africa. Handmade in South Africa, Ethiopia, Kenya and Morocco, Brother Vellies creates boots, shoes, sandals and handbags in styles that maintain the spirit and durability of their ancestral counterparts. Using eco-conscious chrome-free leather and animal bi-product hides, their vegetable-tanned leather changes in color with age and wear and all hides are unique. Consistency in color and volume will vary from pair to pair making each shoe and bag a personal, ethical fashion statement.
