Lastly, we got your opinion on Veja styles, the IT shoe of the moment. Known for their high-style reputation and sustainable ethos, you picked the V-10 style, and we can see why. Worn with jeans, chinos, skirts or dresses, these are a pair of trainers that you can live in for the whole term. An alternative similar style is the V-12 if you can’t find the colour way you love.
