Veja has set up a 250-square-meter test shop devoted to repair and recycling. Called Veja X Darwin and located in the French city of Bordeaux, the shop carries prototypes that never went into production, sneakers with small manufacturing flaws and sneakers from old collections. A workshop will repair and clean old sneakers and collect for recycling sneakers that are beyond repair. Veja opened a shop in New York three months ago and another in Paris six months ago. The brand has about 1,800 retailers worldwide and generates about €65 million in annual revenues.
