ABOUT

Since 2005, VEJA has been making sneakers differently infusing each stage of production with a positive impact. Environmentally friendly sneakers, made with raw materials sourced from organic farming and ecological agriculture, without chemicals or polluting processes. In Portuguese, VEJA means “look”. In the brand’s mind, it means to look through your sneakers. The brand rules by transparency and believes that this is the way to further development of even more sustainable ways. The goal of their design studio is simple: create sneakers that will stand the test of time. Veja offers a wide range of beautiful colour alternatives for their sneakers. For many they are known as the vegan sneaker brand.
