Vekla Brown Calf
An elegant, well built sneaker that will quickly become your favorite pair of shoes. The high quality, soft uppers on these sneakers are made from leather that comes from some of the most reputable and respected tanneries in Italy. But there’s a twist. The leather is tanned using a technique that requires less water and a lower use of heavy chemicals, and emits less CO2. I believe this is the way to move forward, incorporating sustainability without diminishing the quality nor the beauty of the product.
When you look at the tip of the shoe from the side, you can judge the sneaker’s profile. Sleek, isn’t it? This is no easy feat, as the rubber, genuine of course, needs to wrap over the tip of the shoe and be stitched into place.
What you don’t see is on the inside of the shoe. Padding, cushioning, vegetable tanned leather lining and leather reinforcements, to keep your feet comfortable all day long.
