Veja vegan shoes.
I think I’ve mentioned to you before that second to vegan handbags, I’m on a roll for cool vegan shoes. I own some from mainstream brands that are accidentally vegan and some that offer vegan options such as this pair from Veja. It’s a French brand rooted on ethical and sustainable business practice. You may have heard it making the buzz recently because Meghan Markle was seen wearing it albeit in a different style. Read: are your shoes vegan?
I’ve been eyeing this brand for quite a while, admittedly pre-Meghan sparkle but really, the Duchess of Sussex reminded me when I saw a glimpse of her while on a boat with Prince Harry. Call it luck because Amour Vert was running 15% off with a certain code (PLANTATREE) when I purchased last week. My order came lightning fast, in 3 days so that alone made me feel good. I’ve been dealing with a lot of stress lately (mostly work-related) so I thought of just consoling myself with this pair. Trivial, but c’mon give it to the workaholic girl, oki?
This particular style is called Veja SDU in Burgundy Dried Petal. It retails for $120, with 15% discount, it’s $102 at Amour Vert. Here are some cool details about this pair:
3 plastic bottles were used to create these sneakers. The panels are made from vegan suede. The lining is made from recycled polyester. The soles are made from wild rubber found in the Amazonian forest. Lastly, this pair is made in Brazil, in the region of Porto Alegre. I wear a size 5 and they fit well with some wiggle room for the toes.
The style is reminiscent of 80s sneakers so they are quite vinatge-y yet chic when paired with jeans, white V-neck tee and double ring brown belt as photographed. On weekends, I dress ever so casually but still looking put together in a way. Well I think so.
These sneakers are so comfortable to wear and the color I chose is so timely for fall and winter. They go perfectly with my all-black ensemble or in days I just want to look laid-back like the past weekend.
I do have an unboxing video for you to see this pair in action, alongside my excitement and ‘lil vlog.
