Founded in Paris in 2006, VEJA is a sneaker brand like no other. Made with the environment in mind, the label has become more and more popular over the past few years, and it is all for a good cause.
Utilising organic cotton sourced from farmers in the North-East of Brazil, the French imprint buys this at around twice the market price to ensure the producers are paid a fair wage. Additionally, the insole and midsoles of VEJA trainers are made from wild rubber from the Amazonian Rainforest.
In the past, the brand has collaborated with French designer Agnès b and Parisian label FrenchTrotters, and has famously been seen on the feet of The Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle.
Highlights of the range include models such as the Esplar, Riobranco, V-Lock, Campo, and of course, the V-10, which debuted back in 2016 to celebrate the brand’s tenth anniversary.
