Veja’s white Marlin trainers are named after the marlin fish that can swim up to 68mph in short bursts and designed for running on flat terrains such as roads and parks. They have a breathable V-knit lace-up upper – derived from recycled plastic bottles – with cushioning around the heel to prevent blisters, then are set on a responsive sole made from a sustainably sourced rubber blend.
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.
