Veja's washed-black Rio Branco trainers are made from Hexamesh, a signature fabric composed of organic cotton and recycled polyester. They're mindfully produced in Porto Alegre, Brazil with suede and leather panels, a white V-appliqué matching the printed logo at the heel tab and a cream sole made from wild rubber sourced responsibly from the Amazon 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.
