  • Jennifer Garner recently rocked Veja SDU Rec sneakers while performing some ballet moves on Instagram.

  • The casual shoe is sustainable and comfortable, made of 100% recycled plastic bottles.

  • Other celebs, including Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle, also love the brand.

As the owner of an organic snacks brand for kids, Jennifer Garner has good taste—in pretty much everything, including shoes. The actress, 49, recently rocked a pair of comfy, casual sneakers on Instagram while twirling through her best ballet moves. Although the Veja SDU Recs aren’t technically made for dancing, Garner made them work.

It helps that they’re super stylish and great for other activities like walking, jogging, or running errands. In Garner’s video, shared on February 18, the shoes supported all of the basic ballet positions. Trading a leotard for denim overalls, she (and her fluffy cat named Moose) started with some plies in the kitchen and carried the dancing party into the greenhouse and outside.

Perhaps next time, the Yes Day star will want to upgrade to some ballet flats, but the Veja SDU Recs didn’t let her down. This isn’t the first time she’s been spotted wearing them, either.

The breathable shoes are a great eco-friendly pick (which jives perfectly with Garner’s sustainability efforts), as they’re made from 100% recycled plastic bottles. The glued sole is made from rubber and rice waste, and the accent panels are vegan suede.

In her video, Garner sported the baby blue and gray colorway with seafoam accents, which is unfortunately hard to find online. However, similar designs—like the Natural/California pattern—are just as cute and available on Amazon and Zappos. Shoppers love them.

“I am overjoyed with these Veja sneakers. They are super comfy with a lot of style that can be used for several outfits,” one Zappos reviewer writes. “My favorite shoes! I get compliments on them every time I wear them and they are comfortable,” an Amazon shopper raves.

Thanks to Garner and other celebs who love the SDU Rec (including Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton), the style is in high demand. However, Veja offers other shoes that are just as fashionable and practical, like the SDU RT. Also crafted from 100% recycled plastic bottles, the sporty pick is versatile and durable. Another option: the Rio Branco Hexamesh is available in three colorways on Amazon—pink, black, and natural—and features the same sustainable materials as the other pairs, plus a soft jersey external lining.

So, whether or not you plan to practice ballet in them, these sneakers are a reliable, Garner-approved buy. No further justification needed.
