FEATURES The bovine ChromeFree leather is smooth and light. Coming from farms located in the south of Brazil (Rio Grande do Sul), it undergoes an innovative tanning process where no chrome, heavy metals, or dangerous acids are involved. By simplifying the tanning process, the use of chemicals and energy is limited. Water use is reduced by approximately 40% and salt by 80%. After tanning, the water is recyclable. ✓ Upper: ChromeFree leather ✓ Panels: ChromeFree leather ✓ Logo V: ChromeFree leather ✓ Insole: Amazonian rubber (11%), sugar cane (42%), recycled E.V.A.* (11%) and organic cotton (12%) ✓ Outsole: Amazonian rubber (31%), rice waste (22%) and recycled rubber (12%) ✓ Lining: Tech (100% recycled polyester) ✓ Laces: Organic cotton (100%) ✓ Made in Brazil ABOUT THE BRAND Launched in 2004, VEJA is the product of a vision to create sneakers that are kinder to the environment and the people involved in the manufacturing process. The Brazilian word for ‘look’ VEJA empowers the wearer to look beyond the sneakers and see exactly how they’re made. It’s this transparency that has won VEJA a global following, particularly with those looking to make more considered consumption choices without sacrificing their favourite white sneakers. VEJA implements myriad processes and practices to ensure their sneakers are as positive as they can be. Upcycling of materials, including recycled polyester, plastic bottles and cotton retrieved from industry deadstock, is used where possible, along with organic cotton, Amazonian wild rubber and a leather alternative that is vegan and bio-sourced to help eliminate the petroleum-based processes that often come with mainstream leather alternatives. With Fair Trade and chemical transparency initiatives integrated into the brand’s ethos, VEJA has cemented itself as a leader in the sustainable sneaker space. SIZE GUIDE
