Shoe manufacturing is a massively chemical filled process, and more than 30 million pairs of shoes end up in landfill every year... So I felt ok spending €80 on these #Veja white plimsolls. Organic cotton, and wild rubber goodness... Except that after only 1 summer they’re totally knackered! Maybe black shoes would be more sustainable longer term??! Still, not going to throw them out just yet - until the rain gets in they’re viable. that’s my policy.
