Club Monaco has joined forces with sustainable brand Veja to bring us a woman’s sneaker fusing eco-friendly materials and fair trade processes with cutting edge design. The shoes are created with technology developed by Veja that allows Amazonian rubber tappers to sustainably harvest wild rubber which they then use in the soles of the trainers. In addition to this, Veja works directly with the rubber tappers every year to teach them the harvesting process as well as negotiate fair trade contracts for them.
The collection also features bottle mesh technology, which creates a light, breathable and waterproof fabric made from 100% recycled plastic bottles. It takes three recycled plastic bottles to make each pair of sneakers. The Veja x Club Monaco capsule collection is available now in grey and navy colourways for $145 CAD, exclusively at Club Monaco stores.
