The avant-garde designer and contemporary French sneaker label have come together for Fall/Winter 2019 on a classic silhouette from Veja, which has been given a typically-Rick overhaul with “Black,” “Beige” and “Dust” colorways. The new take continues Veja’s sustainable ethos by making the shoes from 45% organic materials, namely a 3-D Knit upper made from recycled bottles.
Elsewhere, the collaborative sneaker sports a sole unit using 50% natural Brazilian leather, which forms half of the shoe’s L-FOAM cushioning technology. Collaborative detailing is kept to a minimum, utilizing two off-white hued stripes on the right heel to denote Owens’ participation. Veja branding is seen on the left-side heel, and the duo comes together with dual branding on the footbed.
Take a look at the Rick Owens x Veja V-Knit in the gallery above, and pick up a pair for yourself now from Veja’s webstore for €250 EUR (approx. $273).
