Based on adult styles, these Veja Esplar trainers for children are made from ethically sourced and fairly traded leather and rubber. They are designed with a reinforced sole and built-up toe and have two hook-and-loop fasteners for easy slip-on comfort. Named after a Brazilian NGO that offers technical support to organic cotton farmers in northern Brazil, this style was launched in 2011.
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.
