What do Pete Davidson, Dame Helen Mirren and John Hamm have in common? Their common love for sustainable sneakers, of course!
This sentence did not come from a Mad Libs game. It is indeed a fact. All of these stars were spotted in a pair of Cariuma shoes, and after taking a look at the brand, we know why. Not only does the brand offer so many different styles of comfortable sneakers, but they do so in a way that is as good for the environment as possible. See, the brand prides itself on sustainability (to be honest, usually when I see an organization bragging about this I’m skeptical), and their words seem to verify.
The shoes are made with natural materials like bamboo, which can regenerate itself when cut from the upper, as well as organic cotton, sugarcane and recycled plastics. According to the brand, 65% of its products are 100% vegan. So here is. They walk the march. In addition, for every shoe purchased, Cariuma plants two pairs of trees in the Brazilian rainforest.

Selection wise, they have a much wider variety of kicks than I expected. For example, they have slip-ons to wear anywhere that look ideal to wear while grocery shopping or walking around the neighborhood. They also have these Vans-esque skate shoes that anyone can enjoy. These are the kind of shoes I can see myself and my boyfriend sharing (if he was 7ft tall, that is). Not to mention that some shoes are the result of initiatives. For every pair of 4ocean high shoes purchased, the brand pledges to remove two pounds of waste from an ocean. Basically, you can look good, feel good, and do good no matter what shoe you buy.

I tested these white low tops because Avril Lavigne taught me that a skateboarding phase should never stop. I’ve never been on a skateboard, but the mentality of a skateboarder lives deep in me. These are incredibly versatile in that I have literally worn them to the gym, brunch, and work.
The non-slip sole keeps me on the ground during any excursion, and although the shoes are flat, my feet feel supported with every wear. They look great with a pair of baggy jeans, floral dresses, and even leggings. I know I will be able to wear them for any occasion, and that’s a really special trait to have in a pair of shoes.
Oh, and fwiw, this is the pair that internet boyfriend Pete Davidson wore during an SNL ‘Career Day’ skit last season.
Now, most of the celebrities I mentioned above have worn a pair of low top sneakers from Cariuma. For example, John Hamm rocked black knitwear on a walk, and Helen Mirren did the same, but in a green tint. If I can’t inspire you to buy a pair of these durable shoes, then surely they can.
