These Cariuma Sneakers Are Consciously Made and So Cute

Our standards in shoe shopping are constantly rising. While a stylish pair with a comfortable fit is essential, we can strive for more. We want to see innovative designs, premium materials, brand transparency, and tons of glowing reviews.

Checking off every last requirement on our list meant crossing off so many options, but it was all worth it in the end, because that’s how we found these Brazilian beauties, inspired by Rio’s beach and street culture. These sneakers are the ultimate everyday footwear and they come in a range of colors for less than $80.

It’s here: Buy the OCA Low sneaker at Cariuma

These OCA Low sneakers have received over 300 reviews and a collective rating 4.89. “Wow” is all we can say. Okay, okay, we have more to say! We couldn’t be more proud! They’re everything we’ve been looking for.

Shoppers love these shoes so much that they can’t stop staring at their own feet. They say their “feet love wearing them and [they] love receiving the compliments.” They also agree that these sneakers are “super comfortable” from the very first wear and even “feel like slippers.” On top of that, they’re of “the best quality,” which is a relief when we consider how many canvas sneakers we’ve owned that have been torn apart after just a few months!

These handcrafted OCA Lows, which encapsulate the “coolness and spirit of Rio,” have a 100% fair-trade cotton upper with a cute cap design at the toe. The canvas upper is metallic, but the eyelets and the aglets at both ends of the laces, which are metal, add a touch of shine to these star sneakers. Subtle details like this can really level up a shoe from a “want” to a “need,” and we most definitely need this one!

On the inside of this shoe, we’ll find the unique memory foam and vegetable-tanned leather hybrid insole. Do you need a unique insole? This one is removable! The innovative design has captured our and our feet’s love, and the fact that 100% of the water used in the leather process is reused and treated is making our heart soar!

Back on the outside we’ll see the white, fully-stitched rubber outsole, which is lightweight and slip-resistant. This rubber may come from trees, but it isn’t actually harmful to trees!

We’ll be happy to hear that according to reviewers, they’re also “versatile enough to wear out in the evening with casual dresses”! No more carrying around an extra pair of shoes throughout the day! No way — not with our Cariumas already ready to impress!
