I’m not going to lie, France based Veja wasn’t a brand that I payed much attention to recently, but after seeing their latest release (the Veja Méditerranée) I’m found asking myself why?
Veja themselves describe these as a “crossover between a sneaker and a boat-shoe” and they look like the perfect canvas shoe to just chill in on a Summer’s day. They come in 4 colours (Navy, London Red, Grey and Royal Blue), all set nicely against the natural coloured canvas and white outsole. Veja is a brand that focuses heavily on ecological materials being used – the canvas is 100% organic cotton and the rubber is harvested from wild rubber trees growing in the Amazonian rainforest, with each product released trying to leave as little a footprint (no pun intended) on the environment as possible.
I’m a fan of these simple canvas shoes, they have enough detail on them to set them apart from the rest, but they’re not over-the-top enough to struggle when matching with an outfit.
All colours are available now for £45 from End Clothing.
