Care Instructions

Coating or waterproofing should always be done before using your pair of VAER for the first time.

You can either do this with a normal coating spray or with beeswax.

How to:

Coat the beeswax onto the
shoes (do not forget the seams) and work the wax into the shoes by a dryer in the end. The product increases the water's resistance, revives colors, and prevents rapid soiling.

See our YouTube channel for inspiration and instructions

Our impact

Because we upcycle and give textile waste a new life, we use much less ressources compared to a normal sneaker.

We use as little plastic as possible in order to minimise the release of microplastics.

  • Danish design meets Portuguese craftsmanship

    Our sneakers are designed in Copenhagen by Linda and Emma, who are experts when it comes to sustainable design. They pay specific attention to the quality and comfort of the sneakers, which are handmade in a family-owned factory in Portugal.

  • Visit our store and try the shoes!

    We are a part of Den Cirkulære and you can come by and try on the shoes. The store is run by a community of circular brands and each day of the week you will get to meet someone new. VAER is mostly there on the weekends.
