I already have a pair of Veja (Taua), which I was satisfied - despite a life somewhat limited, especially on the seams - and I am sensitive to the ethical production and (partially) the ecological Veja. But this model is very disappointing in terms of manufacturing quality: - I just shoes of 44 (10.5 = US) and in my Taua 44 fit me perfectly. But this model clearly has a size calibration problem: it is presented as a 44 but the label says oddly both size 44 and US 11 (while my Taua, they, well have a label 44 / 10.5 ). In fact, they are too long, yet, curiously, almost too narrow and tight on the top of the foot. In any case, their dimensions have nothing to do with Taua in 44 or 44 with the currents in other brands. - I waterproofed leather (suede) and yet the rain leaves traces of highly visible water droplets, which do not leave! I have never seen that on shoes of this type. It is clearly lacking treatment on the leather.
The ethical approach of Veja is interesting, but the quality of their production is obviously very uncertain. I highly recommend this model.
However, extremely fast delivery from Amazon, impeccable service.
