Veja x Rick Owens


For SS21, VEJA and Rick Owens bring together a redefinition of the classic Runner Style. In this fourth edition, the midsole is made of 57% sugar cane and 5% banana oil combined with 30% Amazonian rubber and 31% rice waste for the outsole. The upper V-Knit is made from 100% recycled polyester deriving from plastic bottles.

Each of the new colors has its own V logo combination in Pebax made of ricinus oil.



SS21 re-introduces the vegan Hiking Style designed to perform on rough and natural terrains. VEJA and Rick Owens bring back the full black version as a chunkier alternative to the Runner style 2. Both brands’ markings, the Rick Owens double tag and the VEJA logo, are found on the back of the shoe. The style comes with additional mega-laces in dark-grey.

As an alternative to leather, the style made in C.W.L combines a 100% organic cotton canvas, coated with P.U., corn starch, and ricinus oil. This vegan fabric is 54% bio-based. The midsole is made of 40% sugar cane.
