When you buy shoes the wrong size and then you aren't able to wear them because your toes are intolerably squished, or when you buy them too big and have to limit your sock choices to only the thickest you can possibly muster up or even double layer? Yeah, let's avoid that.

Veja Fit Guide


MATERIALS: Much like the V10's, they feature a leather upper with panels made out of leather, a rubber logo V, plus lining in jersey which is 33% organic cotton and 67% recycled polyester. Like all Veja's, the sole is made from ethically harvested wild rubber from the Amazon forest.

THE FIT: There isn't much difference between the V10's and V12's in terms of style but the V12's have a more narrow fit. We still recommend you size down if you're between sizes as they are quite long in the toe, but better for those with narrower feet. These, much like the V10's are a bit of hard yakka to break in, but soften up once they've moulded to your feet. Have faith, you will get through it!


MATERIALS: They feature a leather upper, panels made out of leather, a rubber logo V, plus lining in jersey which is 33% organic cotton and 67% recycled polyester. The leather on these is quite stiff to begin with, but they will soften as you wear them. FYI, the leather on the V10/V12 styles is quite stiff to begin with, with the main pressure points being around the heel and tongue. These will soften up as you wear them!! Veja doesn't use petroleum based products in their materials (which is a really really great thing and why we love Veja). However, that makes the materials less malleable. Although these are a sneaker, think of them more like a dress sneaker. Meaning they aren't really meant for walking in all day as you would expect from a sneaker such as Adidas or Nike.

THE FIT: These fit a little on the larger side so we recommend if you're usually between sizes to go for the size down.


MATERIALS: Chrome-free leather upper, organic cotton, recycled polyester and a vegan suede V-logo.

THE FIT: These guys are pretty short in the toe so we recommend sizing up if you're between sizes. They are also a wider fit! The low top style allows for instant comfort with no pressure points. Love that.


MATERIALS: Soft leather upper with a breathable organic cotton lining and simple V-stitch design on the side. A classic low-top style made for those who appreciate simple, clean design!

THE FIT: These tend to run true to size but if you're between sizes it's best to size down. The Esplar's have a relatively flat sole so if arch support is important for your feet, a different style such as the SDU or Venturi would suit you better.


MATERIALS: These are a completely vegan shoe 🎉🎉🎉 Consisting of a B-Mesh upper made from plastic bottles, with vegan suede panels. Amazonia rubber sole, jersey lining and rubber V logo on the side.

THE FIT: The SDU model fits slightly small. Take the size down if you're between sizes, otherwise just stick to your normal size. The fully B-Mesh upper is super flexi and soft, which avoids the 'breaking in' phase like with the leather styles, and provides you with instant comfort as soon as you put them on. Super lightweight too 👍


MATERIALS: Hexamesh composed of 70% organic cotton and 30% recycled plastic bottles. Hexamesh is a material Veja developed themselves. The lining is 33% organic cotton and 67% recycled polyester.

THE FIT: These guys fit pretty true to size! I tried a pair of these on for the first time just recently and was like "whooaaaaa these arrrreee sooooo commmmmfffffy!!!" I'm team Rio Branco all the way. They're a nice snug fit, super light and just make walking real easy. And when you find shoes that make walking easy? You're winning.


MATERIALS: The Venturi is made in part from recycled plastic bottles - three per pair to be exact. The suede and B-Mesh upper creates a breathable, water-resistant upper, while the organic cotton cushioned insole provides comfort. As with all Veja sneakers, the sole is made from wild rubber from the Amazon.

THE FIT: True to size, "The Venturi provides welcomed relief to your feet." - GAG, 2020 😏


MATERIALS: The Condor is Veja's first step into the running world 🏃‍♂️🏃‍♂️ They have mixed innovative fabrics such as Alveomesh, which is made from 100% recycled plastic bottles, with natural materials such as Ricinus oil, natural latex, banana oil, sugar cane, rice husks (waste from the food industry) and wild rubber from the Amazon to create the first ecological running shoe without the use of petroleum based materials 👏

THE FIT: Flexible and light, making them efficient for running. The Condor fits true to size!
