There’s only one thing better than a great set of new kicks… and that’s kicks with a conscience. On that note, we’re currently seriously enamoured with Brazil-based label Veja. Veja takes the whole sustainable/ethical/eco movement very seriously, producing only what their farmers and makers can support. The shoes are made using organic, fair trade cotton sourced from 320 farming families, in conjunction with wild rubber. Leather goods exclusively use eco-tanned skins. Rocking style aside, what we truly appreciate is the label’s frankness and honesty when it comes to ensuring a truly sustainable and ethical supply chain. The fact is, an absolutely pure supply chain is virtually impossible to guarantee, but a genuine commitment to delivering a product with conscience and interest in the research required is what it’s going to take to get as close as possible.
Veja sneakers start from €69.00. Shipping is free for orders over €100.00.
