Today, 99% of running shoes on the market are composed of plastics, which are 99% derived from petroleum. Our society’s dependence on plastic and oil is an ecological catastrophe.
From drilling petroleum to plastic waste flowing into the sea, why aren’t we looking at how we can reduce our dependency on both?
It took over 4 years of Research & Development to develop VEJA’s first ecological running shoe: The Condor.
Blending various new technologies, the shape is inspired by the South American bird bone structure, with biomimetic design, flexibility, and lightness enough efficient for running.
Today, the Condor is 53% natural-based and recycled, which is VEJA’s first step towards the running world. Condor is the perfect balance between organic materials and running optimization.
Made in Brazil in a factory that respects workers' rights.
