Recently, the new generations have found a sensitivity to choose brands that are truly responsible with the environment and pay their employees well, but these types of companies manage to do so by raising the costs of the final product. While the brand Cariuma has found a balance to deliver a quality, fashionable product at much more affordable prices to the international market.

This company was founded in 2018 in Rio de Janeiro, in Brazil, by David Python and Fernando Porto. The word “Cariuma” has no translation, but is a mixture of words to represent “diversity and inclusion”.

Since its launch, the brand has been expanding and has managed to position itself in international markets, such as the United States. Mainly, this footwear is characterized by its social and ecological responsibility, because in addition to using ecological materials, two trees are planted in the Amazon forests for the purchase of each pair of shoes.

These shoes feature a variety in design and vegan materials, which has made them popular with celebrities like Pete Davidson, Noah Centineo, Jon Hamm, and Helen Mirren.

Here are some of our favorite designs:

These shoes are super soft, because they are cushioned with a perfectly cushioned rubber sole, they also have a suede upper and a rubber toe box that adds style and comfort.

You can choose this model according to the upper, which can be made of fabric, leather or suede and for each of these varieties you will find more than 15 colors.

These boots are perfect for cold days because they are comfortable and super soft on the inside. The comments it has received from buyers are only positive mentions about the durability of the materials, and at the same time, in all manufacturing and logistics processes they produce the minimum environmental impact.

In this model you have only two options to choose between: black and brown. The sizes are divided according to whether they are for men and women, but the design is the same.

We all know how versatile good white shoes are and what happens over the years is that shoes wear out first from the insole or sole. While this brand promises to offer you comfort for longer, since it has a padded insole made of cork and that has been made by hand.

You have the possibility to choose the decorative colors between tones: red, pink, blue, black or totally white, there is even an option in which the entire upper is black and the details of the logo are white.
