Veja’s Esplar 3 Locks Silver Sneakers have so much forward-thinking put into their creation, it’s almost not enough to describe them as shoes.  Made with Amazonian rubber, certified organic cotton, and leather from Brazilian livestock, Veja’s shoes are serious about make a positive change.  Plus, silver sneakers are amazing!

With each Esplar sale, organic and family-based farming in the Northeast region of Brazil is supported.  Unlike most manufacturers that use synthetic rubber, Veja sources rubber from the Amazon forest, improving the income of tappers and slowing down the detrimental deforestation of that area.  In addition, Veja’s cotton has been certified by the ADEC since 2007, making them a founder of the organic cotton movement.

Smitten with each step!
