Color — Cashew_Pierre-Multico
What makes these high-tops so essential isn’t the goes-with-everything color palette or even their cool chunky soles. It’s actually the leather, which is responsibly sourced from certified organic leather farms in Uruguay, tanned using less water and dye compared to conventional leather, then transformed by a mechanical beating process that makes it soft and flexible. Meaning: These sneakers are comfortable right out of the box—ideal for all-day exploring.
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.
