Rick Owens and VEJA join forces to unveil two Runner Style sneaker models in the form of the Runner Style 2 and Runner Style Mid for the season. This collaboration marks the third time that the duo are working together and the sneakers will join the Fall 2020 roster. Both of the silhouettes are constructed with sustainability in mind.
The Runner Style 2 is made with a V-knit material throughout its upper sourced from recycled polyester drawn from plastic bottles. The midsole is crafted from 8% banana oil and 46% sugar cane. This sits on top of a natural cork outsole made from 31% rice waste and 30% Amazonian rubber. The Runner Style Mid boasts the same upper construction complete with L-Foam cushioning and 54% bio-based midsole.
