Industry leaders in responsible footwear, VEJA were approached by Rick Owens to collaborate on a range of sneakers that would suit the American designer's clientele. After a stint designing with adidas, Owens was drawn to the incredible detail that Veja puts into their production process to maintain transparency & maximise the ethical operations of their business. When a man who deliberately designs his coats with a pocket big enough to fit a sandwich admires your commitment you know you're doing something right...

Having initially collaborated on running silhouettes, Rick Owens presents a new style dubbed Venturi. These bad boys feature a more off-road aesthetic that suits a style that most would know Rick's label for. The chunky silhouette is built from completely vegan materials including one named "Corn Waste Leather" or CWL for short. This material is created by applying a corn resign/PU mix to an organic cotton base. It really defies logic but the result is something that's quite similar to a synthetic leather you might see elsewhere except it's utilising otherwise wasted resources.

One of the shoe's signature features is the "mega lace" style that Rick Owens debuted on the SS20 runway. It features a set of 2m long laces that are woven in a specific pattern to create a chaotic yet organised system. It's all pretty damn confusing if you haven't done it before but thankfully there's a guide in the box, so you can spend an afternoon swearing aloud as you try to lace your new shoes.
