Since its inception in 2005, VEJA – pronounced vay-ja – has gradually come to cement itself as a leading name in the world of sustainable sneakers. The Paris-based footwear brand is renowned for its eco-conscious approach to design and manufacturing, only ever using premium materials like organic cotton, chrome-free leather and natural Amazonian rubber, which it buys at twice the market price.
VEJA's focus on sustainability certainly doesn't preclude it from making some of the most stylish sneakers out there: a clean, minimalist aesthetic characterises its offering, with versatile colourways like white, grey and black that are complemented by pops of colour.

Key VEJA styles to know
Whether you're buying your first pair of VEJA trainers, or you're already a dedicated VEJA fan looking to add more kicks to your collection, these are the key styles you need to know:
VEJA's V-10 is one of its most popular styles, and it's easy to see why. With a sporty, retro-inspired silhouette, these sneakers are perfect for adding a touch of old-school style to your everyday ensemble. Choose from a range of colourways and constructions – there are both vegan and leather options, all boasting a sturdy sole made from Amazonian rubber, rice waste and recycled rubber.
The Campo is perhaps VEJA's most classic style, with an ultra-clean aesthetic that lends it ultimate versatility. Choose from Nubuck suede or chrome-free leather uppers and team them with anything from jeans and a plain white tee for an effortless everyday look to tailored trousers and a blazer for a contemporary take on summer wedding style.
High-top trainers are a must-have casual staple that belong in every wardrobe. This pair from VEJA, the Nova HT, offer a timeless yet contemporary take on the OG basketball shoe. They feature organic cotton canvas construction and a robust outsole made from Amazonian rubber and rice waste, making them the perfect option if you're looking for a high quality vegan sneaker.
VEJA's Recife sneakers are a playful retro-inspired style that offer convenience (no pesky laces!) and comfort in equal measure. Choose from six pared-back colourways, all of which are made from ethically tanned chrome-free leather.
The ever-popular Esplar style is another VEJA classic that boasts a refined silhouette and top-notch craftsmanship. Taking inspiration from classic tennis sneakers, they are available in either leather or organic cotton canvas. Wear them with chino shorts and a breezy linen shirt for easy smart-casual summer style.
