Veja V-10 Ripstop Black Oxford Grey Mud
Veja's sneakers are made using sustainable materials, but Veja also returns a percentage of the profits to the Brazilian community that manufactures them. These Veja V-10 leather sneakers are made from raw materials, including rubber soles harvested from the Amazonian rainforest and organic cotton linings sourced from Ceará, Brazil.
The ripstop features a reinforced structure as it is tear-resistant due to its mesh-shaped pattern made up of fine and thicker, intertwined yarns. If there is a tear in the fabric, it will be narrowed down to the circumference of the square. Being a light material, it is often used in outdoor activities, which requires solid technical expertise.
The leather comes from the Rio Grande do Sul farms, a Brazilian state located at the border of Argentina. It is tanned in Brazil, respecting the REACH norms. Special attention is paid to water usage during the tanning process. The tanneries supplying VEJA leather are Gold certified by the Leather Working Group which promotes sustainable environmental practices.
Suede is made from the underside of the leather previously brushed to make it softer and more flexible. It comes from the Rio Grande do Sul farms. It is tanned in Brazil, respecting the REACH norms. Special attention is paid to water usage during the tanning process. The suede is coated with water-repellent oils to protect the shoes from light rain. The tanneries that work with VEJA are certified by the Leather Working Group.
The soft lining is made out of organic cotton and recycled polyester obtained from recycled polyester.
