Veja’s white V-12 low-top trainers are updated with beige suede logo and heel patches stitched on the smooth leather upper. They’re made in Brazil using eco-friendly practices and materials including an organic cotton and recycled polyester-blend lining – derived from plastic bottles – and an off-white outsole made from biologically sourced Amazonian rubber and rice waste.
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.
