We fall in love with every sneaker Veja dreams up. Why? They’re always made with sustainable materials (like wild rubber harvested by generational family co-ops of rubber tappers, organic cotton, recycled polyester, and ChromeFree leather), and they’re always cute. Recife is a crisp white style, accented with an emerald heel tab and finished with Velcro straps—a playful-meets-chic design that’s easy in every way.
Founded by childhood friends Sébastien Kopp and François-Ghislain Morillion, Veja produces everyday sneakers with strong sustainability cred. The brand sources Amazonian rubber directly from seringueiros (rubber tappers) for its soles, practices radical transparency by publishing everything from material costs to chemical safety test reports, and spends zero dollars on advertising, redirecting those funds to things like higher compensation for laborers. The designs range from classic to retro, all with their signature “V” emblazoned on the side.
