For a refined version of the sneaker, check out all the orGLAMic shoes made by Veja.  Designed in Paris, this company works with small Brazilian producers of organic cotton and wild rubber from the Brazilian Amazon to create a variety of hip, chic sneaks.  The Indigenos made of vegetable-tanned leather would be my choice for any orGLAMic man in my life, as I think they are youthful and refined at the same time.  I also love that could easily transition from work to play to a night on the town.  Click here to browse the entire orGLAMic collection and here to find a worldwide location near you.
