These 1970s-inspired “Volley” sneakers from the french-brazilian Veja company are made from organic cotton grown by cooperatives of small farmers in Brazil.
The shoes are made from natural latex rubber, vegetable-tanned leather and organic cotton. Wild rubber trees are only found in the Amazon and supporting wild latex production helps prevent deforestation in this region.
Ethical, well-made and a very simple design is what really sets Veja apart from the rest. I really like the vintage feel of the shoe but at the same time the look can be very modern. If you want to get a pair, these shoes are now available online at Shopequita.com
