“Summer lives faraway, toward new horizons”

The unknown intrigues. The flâneurs, while playing with them, adjust to differents grounds succeed one another under their feet. Their wake dressing up in traveling memories. As far as the eyes can see, adventure is waiting, hiding away, not far. Insolents, explorers are sliding. The escape begins. Tawny desert dunes to sandy moors, bristled with palm groves, their outlines melting into setting suns. From snowy landscapes to tropical canopy shadows, they stay on course, juggling between pastel hues and invigorating colors. Thrilled, open to all tomorrow’s horizons.

Now, summer premises are coming. This is time to decrypt travel books or long itineraries... and to wander towards scum and to play with mountains roads. Speed, chase illusions of dunes or choose to slalom across cactus.

Four univers, four brands, four such as the four cardinal points, and one goal: guide you, in roller skates, to enjoy and discover numerous atypical horizons.

New collection is there! Discover our four travelling universes and leave with a detachable roller skate pair. All new models are available with Iconic and Premium rolling parts. Differences between the two ranges are detailed here. Those model are also available for a Change Your Shoes.

The V-10 model was created to celebrate the 10th anniversary of Veja. The brand offers the appealing idea of no longer having to choose between design and commitment, and offers a pair of sneakers that go through the ages.
