It's got to be said, we have a bit of a style crush on this conscious brand and are very excited that we are now stocking Veja at Jump. All of us have been huge fans of this brand for some time; we love their ethos, the style and the quality of their trainers.
Veja means 'look' in Brazilian. Since the creation of the brand in 2004, Veja have been manufactured in the state of Rio Grande do Sul in southern Brazil. All Veja trainers and accessories are made of organic cotton, with which they work alongside a co-operative of organic cotton farmers in the North-East of Brazil. All the cotton and food crops are cultivated without chemicals or pesticides.
They use wild rubber from the Amazon to create the soles of Veja trainers. Veja buy Amazonian rubber at a premium which means Rubber Tappers earn a good enough living that it helps to reduce the monetary appeal of land clearance in the Amazon rainforest thus in turn, fighting against deforestation.
Veja use vegetable-tanned leather making it Chrome-free and organic. Avoiding using heavy metals like Chrome, helps to reduce the pollution that usually comes from water that sits close to tanneries.
For the mesh that is used on the soles of their trainers, Veja use recycled plastic bottles! It takes three of these to make one pair of shoes by crushing the bottles to produce a fibre. Their trainers are also the most biodegradable on the market.
We were fascinated to learn everything that went into creating such a cool, classic but funky trainer in order to, not only to make them look good, but for the environmental impacts to be so carefully considered. Veja are definitely doing their bit.

We couldn't come back without one of our customer and staff favourite brands! This 60-year old trusty brand uses only the premium super soft leather to craft their flexible shoes, making them perfect for little growing feet.
Froddo's shoes are cleverly designed to include a removable insole which makes them great for orthotics and a number of bumper toes on most of their shoes to help with scuffing.
Their shoes range from a tiny size 19 with soft soles and bumper toes all the way up to a size 42, boys school shoe. They cater for both wide and narrow feet working with orthopaedic surgeons to ensure their collection suits a variety of growing feet.
We look forward to showcasing Froddo's Spring colourful collection at Jump very soon . . .

We have stocked super cool sports brand Hummel at Jump for many years now. Our customers love this Danish brand and it's ability to mix current colour trends with retro style.
The brand is almost 100 years old, beginning with a young shoemaker Albert Messmer who developed one of the first football cleats in the world... fun fact! As Hummel developed so did it's design and philosophy with the chevron emblem symbolising team spirit, partnered with the bumblebee logo emerging in the 1950s.
Hummel has had sponsorship deals with football clubs and under the current owner Christian Stadil, has established itself as a trendsetting sports apparel brand.
The 'Stadil Hi-Top' is our most popular style by Hummel. We have found over the years, it's three velcro straps and ability to open out makes it a fantastic trainer for kids who like to be able to put their shoes on themselves and also for children that wear Orthotics or need extra ankle support in the form of a stylish weekend trainer.
