As the saying goes, you can have too much of a good thing - but, at TOWER we don’t think such restrictions apply to French footwear brand, VEJA. Since preliminary ideas surfaced in 2003, VEJA has fought an ongoing battle for better working conditions and a healthier planet in which workers, manufacturers and the average consumer are all cared for. Two years later, their first trainer hit shopfloors and our French counterparts went from strength to strength However, today’s topic of conversation finds two silhouettes at its core - the 10th Anniversary V-10 and 2017’s V-12. Both similar though differing in their own right, join TOWER in distinguishing between two styles at the top of everyone’s list. At first glance, there’s very little separating the V-10 from its younger self. We’d highlight the V-12’s lacing-strip that dives beneath a thickset scuff-guard - dividing a single panel in two where the V-10 bares one. This is coupled with occasional branding at the V-12’s heel, in place of a structural panel seen prior. Comparison: material. Fortunately, both models are available with the options of a premium, though sustainably sourced leather upper on one hand, and VEJA’s water-repellant B-Mesh on the other - created using 100% recycled polyester for consumers that prefer a lighter feel on foot. Peeking beneath the surface, both pairs are lined with an organic cotton and recycled plastic compound to promote breathability, whilst Amazonian rubber, rice waste and even more recycled rubber shapes the outsole.You can now shop both styles above alongside a whole host of great VEJA product, at TOWER.
