FOM Vellies Standard Toffee


Our Vellie is as versatile as they come. Your wheels for any adventure, from semi-formal to braai. Just like any other lasting relationship, some ground work will have to be done. The first week or so could potentially be slightly uncomfortable (wear thicker socks), but this will steadily become the most comfortable shoe you have ever worn as the relationship between our Vellie and your feet blossoms.


We recommend using the above products to enhance the life of the vellies.

Care instructions

  1. Oily liquids will be absorbed into the leather and could be difficult to remove. For this reason we recommend to pretreat the leather before use with a suitable suede/nubuck protective spray. (we recommend using Dasco’s Protector).
  2. Clean regularly with the FOM rubber(supplied with each purchase) to remove surface dirt. For heavy cleaning please proceed to step 3.
  3. Spray Nubuck cleaning mousse (we recommend Meltonian’s Clean & Care Mousse ) on and use the FOM rubber to open up the nap of the nubuck and to spread the mousse evenly over the total surface of the vellie. Very important: Please be gentle with the rubber, don’t try and forcefully remove any stain marks, the mousse will do the magic for you.
  4. Leave the vellies to dry for a minimum of 2 hours out of direct sunlight.
  5. When the vellies are completely dry, brush it with the FOM rubber to restore the nap of the leather.
  6. It is advisable to apply a Nubuck Renovator (we recommend Meltonian’s Suede and Nubuck Renovator) to restore and revive the colour of the nubuck.
  7. Apply suede/nubuck protective spray for that final cover before your next adventure.
