Veja V-12's eco-friendly makeup
French label Veja reinvents the sneaker landscape by finding ways to manufacture high-quality, durable, on-trend sporty kicks. V-12 is one of its prized creations, and below are some of the ethical reasons why this shoe continues to charm eco advocates, fashionistas, and A-listers.
Cover. Its leather cover went through a creative tanning process that apparently leaves no harmful chemicals to the environment. Some variations are wrapped in a waterproof mesh made from 100% recycled PET plastic.
Lining. Comfy and soft inner sleeves consist of 67% recycled PET plastic and 33% organically grown cotton.
Cushioning. Insoles offer padding and support. These are assembled using 34% sugarcane, 11% Amazonian rubber, 11% organic cotton, and 8% recycled EVA.
Outsole. Grippy outsoles are constructed using wild rubber sourced from the Amazonian forest.
