Veja's off-white Venturi Hexamesh trainers are designed in keeping with its eco-conscious policies – the label doesn't advertise, instead choosing to invest in its workers and sustainable supply chain. They're crafted in Porto Alegre, Brazil from organic cotton and recycled polyester panelled with water-repellent suede, then set on a trademark sole sourced from the sap of protected Amazonian rubber trees.
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.
