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.

Low, elegant profile.
The shape of the sneaker, and the toe in particular, was our primary focus when we set out to design our own sneaker. We wanted the toebox to sink into the sole, and be as elegant as possible when looked at from all angles. The walls of the rubber sole wrap around the toebox, so that the profile follows an elegant curve.
Thick, 100% cotton laces.
Thick laces are a must for any sneaker. Ours are made from 100% bio-cotton, spun and twisted near to the production factory in Marche, Italy. An unmistakable detail of quality.
Margom rubber sole.
A benchmark in the industry and well known for the quality and durability of their rubber soles, we source our soles directly from Margom.
First and foremost, we are shoe developers. Developing and producing shoes is what we know best, and we have taken a very important detail from traditional shoemaking and copied it to our sneakers. The heel counter, or the reinforcement on the inside of the heel, is made from leatherboard instead of the more commonly used and cheaper thermoplastic. Leatherboard will mould itself better to your foot in and increase the comfort drastically.
Chrome free leather.
The future of tanning. All of the leather that we use is a by product of the meat industry, and comes from domestically reared cattle. The leather is tanned using a cutting edge technique that requires less water, a lower use of chemicals and produces less CO2.
