Launched in 2011, the ESPLAR trainers by Veja have been named after the Brazilian NGO which brings technical support to the organic cotton farming families Veja works with in North Brazil since 2004.
Following Veja's principles, all (primarily organic) materials, including the upper and sole, are sourced locally around Brazil.

In 2005, Veja started off to make fair-trade shoes from organic materials, trying to improve every step of production and distribution. Each pair is made in Brazil using local rubber and smart fabrics such as mesh made from recycled plastic bottles or upcycled cotton. Over the past years, the Frenchmen attracted more and more sneaker aficionados with their classic designs and innovative technologies.
