Veja, for a better world

July 14, 2011

 

 

When they hit the market in 2005, Veja shoes got a lot of attention, for they were  the first ecological trainers brand respecting both humans and the environment. Clean design – organic cotton from the Northeast of Brazil – wild Amazonian rubber and ecological leather – workers’ rights are respected : their look and story  had all to seduce. Great news, mini versions of the green shoes, inspired by the adults style, are now making their way to success. 2-10 years old.

Available from September at Elias & Grace, Petit Aime, Marie Chantal, Bonpoint, Galleries Lafayette, Bellerose
