Tip: Before the leather softens, the tongue can be quite hard and sharp to wear. We recommend tying the lace under the tongue to move the tongue away from the skin and also wear an ankle sock where possible. Once the leather has softened, you will be right to tie the lace on the front of the shoe if preferred.
About Veja the brand:
Veja is a brand built on strong morals and ethical and ecological consciences. Veja meaning ‘look’ in Portuguese- Brazilian asks us to look beyond the sneakers and into their story of how they are made. Veja’s ethical footing starts from the very beginning of the sourcing cycle from the organic cotton producers farming pesticide-, GMO- and fertilizer-free cotton that is spun into the canvas for the sneakers, the families of rubber tappers producing rubber for the shoes soles and the fair trade conditions that are better than anywhere in the country. The logistics company that rehabilitated ex-offenders, drug-user and others who have struggled in life through unemployment, and their fair trade agreements, the environment consideration of the company’s headquarters and their use of green energy, and finally to the stores that distribute the shoes. Veja is considered in every way from the start of the process to the end user.
