Veja is a Fair Trade label that crafts eco-friendly footwear for men, women and kids. The French brand strives to use recycled materials when creating its shoes to help minimise the fallout from the clothing industry's obsession with fast fashion.

Veja: trainers with a conscience

Veja proves that going green needn't mean compromising on style. Modern designs in materials like cotton and leather (all ethically sourced, of course) feature the brand's bold 'V' motif on top of block-colour or patterned panels. We love going full-on #ThrowbackThursday by wearing slim retro-style trainers with turned-up chinos and a vintage sports jacket. Cropped bootcut jeans, meanwhile, are the perfect way to show off chunkier shoes while giving a nod to the 90s. You can start your little ones young on sustainability, too (just don't expect them to spell it), with Veja's mini-me styles that come complete with easy velcro fastenings and, of course, that recognisable logo. A simple outfit of dungarees and a long-sleeved top makes the brand's bright designs pop.

Veja: sustainable style

Veja is just as dedicated to current trends as it is to using the latest environmentally friendly materials, ensuring its classic lace-up trainers are as admirable as its ethics. We love its slick leather footwear that's perfect for work - not to mention the nights when your feet need a break from heels. For women, pair your Veja kicks with high-waisted trousers for a minimal look that plays with this season's preference for masculine tailoring. If you love Veja's children's designs as much as your little ones do, explore more sustainable kids' clothing. It's never too soon to teach them about being eco conscious (or cool outfits).
