This nude-coloured V10 Leather Mat Perf Veja sneaker has perforated sections on the upper and is entirely in a light pink/nude colour. The leather is vegetable tanned, as well as the inner sole.
The nude color is an easy one to combine with a lot of colours. Black, dark blue, grey, white are the perfect colours to wear that will pop the shoes. Wear it with trousers or dresses, these sneakers go with anything.
The style comes up a little large. If you are between two sizes, it is better to take a size down.
Born out of a desire for a new kind of fashion, French label Veja works with cooperatives of small producers and social associations in Brazil and France. Veja's awesome sneaker collections are made of organic cotton, low-chrome leather, natural rubber and amazing technical fabrics such as recycled polyester and hemp.
The Amazon is the only place on earth where rubber trees grow in the wild. The Amazonian rubber tappers live in the forest and harvest from the trees. The rubber is then used in the soles of Veja trainers.
The rubber tappers use a new technology developed by Professor Floriano Pastore of the University of Brasilia. This process, called FDL (Folha Desfumada Liquida – Liquid Smoked Sheet) allows the rubber tappers to transform latex into rubber sheets, without any industrial intermediary processes. The sheets of rubber are then directly sent to the factory and shaped into soles. This technology permits the Seringueiros to sell semi-finished products and receive a higher income.
Veja uses low chrome leather.
