Cariuma first caught my eye with their Reforestation program in Brazil. Both of Cariuma’s founders are from Brazil, and in a pledge to produce sneakers that are also good for the planet, they’re planting a pair of trees for every sneaker purchased! I love that their mission is to create crazy comfy, consciously made sneakers with an increased lifespan that evolve with their customers.
Here are some ways they are empowering sustainable choices:
They source premium raw materials like bamboo, rubber, organic cotton, and sugarcane through conscious, certified practices
Their shoe boxes double as shipping boxes and they utilize 100% recycled & recyclable paper (certified by the Forest Stewardship Council) to cushion the shoes
Their dye chemicals are Bluesign-certified to ensure no hazardous output during the dyeing process, minimizing pollution and reducing water usage

This is Cariuma’s second collaboration with Pantone so they’re delivering this canvas sneaker in the classic snow white and a variety of other vibrant Pantone shades! The collection of organic, naturally-occurring shades was chosen for its versatility.
The perfect high-top sneaker is right here, crafted from high-end raw materials with “lightweight cushion technology, the perfectly-weighted rubber sole, and classic cap-toe design.” They rival the Converse high-tops but last so much longer and are ethically sourced and produced. This shoe perfectly balances an old-school look and sophistication.
I love the ease and effortlessness of a slip-on sneaker. This pair in particular is vegan and knit with sustainably harvested bamboo and recycled plastics. Comes in 8 cool colors!
I’m a big fan of the vintage look of this shoe! Cariuma tells us “it’s built with traction, ultimate comfort and ankle stability with a reinforced flick point”. Whether you’re purchasing these for skating or style, you absolutely can’t go wrong. It also comes in 7 ultra cool color combinations.
These knit high-top sneakers are so unique and comfy! They are knitted from self-regenerating bamboo and recycled plastics from heel to toe. I appreciate how lightweight they are — it feels like walking on clouds.
