Rick Owens/VEJA

Rick Owens & VEJA CREATE A V-Knit Sneaker WITH Avant-Garde Details, Sustainability, & Minimalism

 

The avant-garde designer Rick Owens and contemporary French sneaker label Veja have teamed up for a Fall/Winter 2019 classic silhouette with “Black,” “Beige” and “Dust” colorways.

This new design utilizes Veja’s sustainable blueprint by making the sneakers from 45% organic materials,  a 3-D Knit upper made with recycled bottles, and a sole unit using 50% natural Brazilian leather.

Other details include two off-white stripes on the right heel to represent Rick, Veja branding on the left, with dual branding on the insole. For a final detail, their unique L-Foam technology is built into the sole for premium comfort.

 Rick Owens x Veja V-Knit is available now from Veja’s webstore for €250 EUR or $273 USD, and don’t forget to scroll through the pics above.
