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

V15

MATERIALS: The V15 C.W.L. are made of organic cotton covered with resin from corn and castor oil creating a vegan alternative to leather. A 54% bio-based innovation for those of you who are conscious of your leather consumption. The leather V15 is made from ethically sourced and treated leather from Uruguay. Like the V10's, it is quite stiff to begin with, mainly around the heel and tongue, but they will soften as you wear them. Veja doesn't use petroleum based products in their materials, instead they tan and dye their leather using vegetables, how cool!

THE FIT: The V15 is a new style from Veja and are true to size!

DEKKAN

MATERIALS: The Alveomesh is a technical fabric made out of recycled PET, which makes these kicks light, water-repellent and breathable. The tech lining is 100% made of recycled polyester. Developed to obtain better resistance to friction and provides maximum comfort and flexibility for your feet!! Vibram is a world leader in technical soles, created 85 years ago, the last 3 years Veja has worked closely with Vibram developing their first eco-friendly sole. Built to last! Your feet will be eternally grateful wearing these during your travels.

THE FIT: The Dekkans are true to size!

URCA

MATERIALS: Another completely vegan shoe to add to the collection! Like the vegan V15's the URCA is made using the vegan alternative to leather, C.W.L. and coated canvas.

THE FIT: These are true to size!

RECIFE

MATERIALS: Made from ChromeFree leather the Recife model is smooth and lightweight, carefully tanned without hazardous acids or chemicals. With 100% organic cotton lining as well as a tech inner lining these will feel like walking on a cloud!

THE FIT: Similar style to the Campo's, the Recife's are short in the toe so we recommend sizing up if you are between sizes! They are also a wider fit! The ChromeFree Leather is softer and much lighter, meaning instant comfort with no pressure points. How good.

V12

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 recommend you size down if you're between sizes as they are a little 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!

V10


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 main pressure points of this shoe are around the heel and tongue. Another pressure point are the areas where the shoe would naturally crease, the more you wear them in the softer the leather will become. 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 true to size.

CAMPO

MATERIALS: Chrome-free leather upper, organic cotton, recycled polyester and a vegan suede V-logo. ChromeFree Leather is smooth and light. It undergoes an innovative tanning process where no chrome, heavy metals or dangerous acids are involved. By simplifying the tanning process, the use of chemicals and energy is limited, the use of water is reduced by about 40% and the use of salt by 80%. After tanning, the water is recyclable.

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 ChromeFree Leather is softer and much lighter, meaning instant comfort with no pressure points. Love that.

ESPLAR

MATERIALS: 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 Esplar is just as stiff as the V10 and V12 models, they will soften with wear.

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.

SDU

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 true to 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 👍

RIO BRANCO

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 a little on the snug side, we recommend sizing up if you are between sizes. Rio Branco's are super light and just make walking real easy. And when you find shoes that make walking easy? You're winning.

VENTURI

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, 2022 😏

CONDOR

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!
