VEKLA | Navy Suede
(€152,89 excl. VAT)
An elegant, well built sneaker that will quickly become your favorite pair of shoes. The very soft upper on these sneakers are made from leather that comes from some of the most reputable and respected tanneries in Italy. But there’s a twist. The leather is tanned using a technique that requires less water and a lower use of heavy chemicals, and emits less CO2. I believe this is the way to move forward, incorporating sustainability without diminishing the quality nor the beauty of the product.
When you look at the tip of the shoe from the side, you can judge the sneaker’s profile. Sleek, isn’t it? This is no easy feat, as the rubber, genuine of course, needs to wrap over the tip of the shoe and be stitched into place.
What you don’t see, but trust me, it’s there, is on the inside of the shoe. Padding, cushioning, vegetable tanned leather lining and leather reinforcements, to keep your feet comfortable all day long.
Upper: Chrome free Italian soft calf leather. Chrome free tanning requires less water, fewer chemicals and results in lower CO2 output.
Lining: Vegetable tanned Italian soft calf leather lining. Vegetable tanning results in a more natural lining that will age beautifully.
Outsole: Rubber outsole sourced from Margom, A benchmark in the industry and well known for the quality and durability of their rubber soles.
Insole: Removable insole lined with chromium free Italian soft calf leather lining.
Heel counter: Leatherboard heel counter.
Laces: Thick, 100% cotton laces sourced from Italy.
Eyelets: Reinforced eyelets on the interior.
Construction: Assembled in the Marche region from Italy.
Padding: Soft padding around the ankle and across the instep.
All Vekla shoes follow the European sizing system, and come in whole sizes only. We recommend you to take the same size as your regular (dress) shoes, and to size down one full size from your running shoes (Nike, Adidas, New Balance, etc.). If you own sneakers that use Margom rubber soles, we recommend you to take the same size. If you fall in between sizes, we recommend you to size down.
Please find below a conversion table that can help you to determine your size in Vekla shoes.
