Editor’s Notes: Rick Owens and VEJA are back with their third collaboration. The Fall 2020 collection consists of the Runner Style 2 and Runner Style Mid, both of which incorporate added sustainable elements.

The Runner Style 2 is a reinterpretation of VEJA's FW19 runner, based around a smoother and lighter sole. The shoe also finds VEJA implementing natural cork in the outsole for the first time ever.

A high-top sock silhouette, the Runner Style Mid also comes with a bio-based cork outsole, as the newly-designed sole unit makes the shoe lighter and more comfortable.
