Veja Esplar Leather Sneakers: Fair Trade Freshness

Some things never change. Like the way a pair of fresh new white sneakers make you feel like a high roller; granted, a high roller who is incredibly paranoid about getting that first scuff mark on his new shoes. One thing that has changed over the years — and for the best — is the attention consumers pay to where and how their stuff is made. TheĀ Esplar Sneakers from Veja (69 euros) are handcrafted in a Fair Trade-certified factory in Brazil. With a veggie-tanned leather upper, organic canvas liner, suede heel tab and gum soles, you’ll feel like the most socially conscious pimp to ever walk the streets.
