Veja’s white Recife trainers are defined by the velcro straps which secure across the forefoot. They’re crafted in Brazil from smooth leather punctuated with a V-logo on the sidewall and a green heel panel, then rest on a textured sole made from wild rubber from the Amazonian forest.
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.
