Veja trainers have been widely photographed and posted all over Instagram for months. You can’t deny that Veja trainers have been incredibly popular over time now and there have been so many of my favourite creators wearing them out and about. Veja trainers seem to be the on-trend footwear right now.
I thought I would treat myself to an early Christmas present and buy the Esplar style of the trainer. Now, recently, I have taken to creating more of a capsule wardrobe for myself. I will only buy pieces that I know are transitional, can be mainly used all year round and are versatile. I really believe that these Veja trainers fit into those categories and are a perfect addition to my shoe cupboard.
So, Veja trainers, are they worth the money? Let’s do a little bit of analysing, shall we?! –
Trying these on for the first time, there is very little give. This is because they’re made of leather and are a little inflexible. So I do think a little bit of breaking them in around the house will definitely help. I’ll have no issues in terms of blisters or discomfort once I’ve broken them in. I have heard that the V10’s are a bit comfier than the Esplars, but they’ll be a future purchase for now!
In terms of size, if you like a snug fit, then go with your normal size. If you like a little toe room or you’re wide footed, definitely size up. At the end of the day, trainers/sneakers should be comfortable!
Quality / Durability
The quality of the Veja trainers is great. You get what you pay for and these trainers should last me for years hopefully! I also love that some Veja trainers are made of vegan leather, that’s a big bonus for me!
The price of Veja trainers differs. The ones I bought were £95. But the prices range from £90-£150, so it’s not too highly expensive. I’ve known some people pay more for other big branded trainers.
One thing I do love about these shoes is that they can be styled all year round and are so versatile. In the winter, I’ll wear the trainers with leggings/jeans. In the Summer, I’ll wear the trainers with shorts or a dress. Also, Veja trainers come in different colours and styles so there’s a style that will definitely suit you. These are certainly great for everyday wear.
So, Veja trainers, are they worth the money?
The answer is yes! As I said, they do need breaking in a bit before I venture outside in them, but that’s not an issue for me and I’m happy to do that as long they’re made comfortable for me! Obviously, please make sure you make the purchase of these if you can afford them or if they will work with your wardrobe and everyday life. The quality of these are great, they’re durable and are versatile, a win-win for me!
I hope this review was helpful to you all!
