For Fall/Winter 2020, sustainable footwear label VEJA has linked with Rick Owens for its third footwear collaboration in as many years. After releasing its collaborative take on the Wool Runner and the Venturi earlier this year, the two brands return this season with two knitted offerings.

First up is the Runner Mid, a high-top sock with a midsole composed of 54% bio-sourced materials while its outsole contains 64%, of which 3% is natural cork. Arriving simultaneously is the lower Runner 2, a lower style sneaker featuring VEJA’s first ever natural cork sole, crafted with a combination of cork, 30% Amazonian rubber and 31% rice waste.

Arriving in an array of white, yellow, red and black, each VEJA x Rick Owens sneaker is available to buy now from the VEJA webstore.

Sustainable footwear has never been a hotter topic, as other sportswear giants get into the game. For instance, Reebok recently introduced the plant-based Forever Floatride GROW.
