Designed in South Africa and made by South Africans. We live in a harsh but beautiful country. It demands respect and we give it that, by making products that are uniquely African.
Weve been around awhile... since 1974 two generations of the Selke family have put their name to a range of gear they believe is worthy of it. We select only the best raw materials and use skilled local craftsmen and women to ensure that what we make is worthy of carrying our name. History has confirmed this.
My mate from the bush does exist. He is a combination of three people, all strong individuals who know what they want. What we need, we make and what we make must be good because we use it. And none of us like plastic and synthetics that look good but cant do the job.
In this increasingly threatened world of ours we dont go along with the "throw away" culture that is so prevalent today. Now that our (unreasonably) paltry incomes must go further, so too must the products. We will re-sole and repair if we can and rejuvenate where possible. Its our business.
Most of what we make are Rogue originals. We may rework some of the standards, but we do it in our own distinctive style. We follow nobody.
Our products have all been constructed from top grade materials to give you unmatched durability; the exact opposite of 'planned obsolescence'. And while every effort has been made to produce a fault free article, nothing that is handmade will ever be perfect all of the time. We are, after all only human.
