THE PEOPLE BEHIND ROF-STYLE

Meet our team

These are the people who work with a lot of passion and dedication to shape every detail of your boot to perfection.
Once you unpack your ROF boots, please check whose name is on the tag to find out who’s the maker of your pair of boots

Laura

Founder

I have dreamed of a life in South Africa ever since I came here as a little girl. The feeling of freedom and calm became permanent when Leo and I decided to leave our (corporate) careers and permanently move to South Africa. And with freedom came beautiful adventures that led to the establishment of ROF-Style. I hope that you find a little bit of adventure in the everyday and that you will treat your ROF’s with as much love as they were made.

Leopold

Founder

I am an adventurer at heart and wish to spend as much time as possible outside. These boots are designed to do just that and I am very proud that we have succeeded in developing a leather boot from the Nguni breed. This was a requirement for me considering the strength of the leather. Working with a small team of passionate and skilled people gives me so much energy, the speed in which we can make adjustments is amazing.

Clau

Marketing Manager

Initially only to create content, Claudia soon became our first team member. From marketing brainstorm sessions in the wilderness to mini content photoshoots in the Cederberg (whilst being 7 months pregnant). She is involved in all things creative at ROF-Style.

Juul

Warehouse Manager The Netherlands

Julia and Laura go way back! They have been friends since the age of 10 and coming from a background in TV productions whilst also raising 3 kids (hello multitasking skills), we knew she was the right fit to coordinate our warehouse in Putten (Holland). Oh, and when you want a personalized fitting, she is your girl. Send an email to julia@rof-style.com to make an appointment.

Abey

Warehouse Manager South Africa

When we moved to Riebeek Kasteel about 1,5 year ago we were looking for someone that could help us around the house. We soon realized that Abey was capable of way more and we asked him to run our warehouse in South Africa.

It’s important these boots are made well so they last for years. I love precision work and I train newcomers in craftsmanship step-by-step.

At work I can be myself. I had the opportunity to learn a skill and find a steady job that I really like

Siphiwe

ROF Boots are made by South Africans, in South Africa and with South African materials, I am happy to be a part of that and I hope many more people will buy local products to support.
