Veja sneakers are an eco-minded change of pace from your kickaround sneakers. (Fun fact: the sole is made from wild rubber sourced from the Amazonian forest.) What’s more: the B-mesh upper—made from three upcycled plastic bottles—is as lightweight and breathable as you’d think. The greige water-resistant suede panels are just a plus. Shoutout to the tulip-pink V and the fluorescent orange heel tab around back.
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.
