It all started seven years ago when our founders 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 ROFs’ 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 off 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 off the beaten track. Unpolished, firm and timeless boots, handmade by passionate local craftsmen.
One FOR all. For him and for her. In every casual setting…
