ROF Style is a purveyor of some of the finest, handcrafted, eco-friendly leather boots made by local craftsmen right here in South Africa.
Simplicity, that’s what ROF is about. One model FOR him and her, in every casual setting. In the colors brown, black and burgundy. Find our collection here. Our products are made using only the best materials with limited impact on our planet.
ROF helps to support local communities in South Africa, a place where unemployment levels are so prominent, by giving the local people an opportunity to learn a craft and become independent.
ROF boots will be marketed primarily online via our own webshop. However we find it very important to give our (international) customers the opportunity to fit and feel the boots. That’s why ROF is frequently organizing events and pop-up stores. Also worldwide a number of showrooms will be selected. Please follow our website and social media to keep up with developments.
It all started seven years ago when they (ROF Founders Leopold and Laura) met each other under a beautiful oak tree in Wellington, South Africa
After a few years of friendship they became a happy couple living a vibrant life in Amsterdam, surrounded by interesting people, promising careers ahead, and a comfortable lifestyle. However, having both grown up in the countryside, they missed that funny place outside the city – where they learned how to play – called nature.
After years of fantasizing about a life in South Africa, they decided to pursue their dream. In 2019 ROF’s founders changed their lifestyle and stepped into the unknown by moving back to the place where it all began.
Once they were settled they decided to bring handcrafted pieces of South Africa to the world. Something both of them missed while living in one of the roughest, but at the same time trendiest places on earth: a pair of boots they could wear in every casual setting.
This experience inspired them to establish ROF, the South African word for rough. A brand that stands for freedom, (outdoor) adventure and of the beaten track. Unpolished, firm and timeless boots, handmade by passionate local craftsmen.
