Which is more impressive: Veja’s colourful array of ethically made shoes, or the fact that the brand’s name literally means “Look” in Portuguese (as in – look at these shoes)? We’re not sure, but we love it almost as much as we love the Campo low-top trainers. Constructed in Brazil from chrome-free leather (using an eco-friendly tanning process), they’re stacked on a wild rubber sole that’s lined with organic cotton and recycled polyester.
A cult destination for trainers, VEJA is a sustainability success story. Sourcing natural rubber directly from farmers in the Amazon rainforest, VEJA prides itself on transparency, fair trade practices and ecologically-minded agriculture, ‘infusing each stage of production with a positive impact’. Proof that style and a social conscience can co-exist.
