The English version of veldtschoen construction is a stitch-down construction with two uppers - one turned under, like a normal welted shoe, and the outer upper turned out and stitched down to make the boot as watertight as a leather boot can be. Normally combined with a full- or half-bellows tongue and waxy, often grained leather to increase water resistance. Better than a storm welt for poor weather, especially moving through 'static' damp like wet grass, snow etc.

 

 

 

EG's stock Galways on the 64 last are built like this, based on the shooting boot that they used to build for Holland & Holland back in the day.

The classic, original veldtschoen ('field shoe') design is a simple stitchdown boots or shoe, like a desert boot.
