To celebrate International Day for Biological Diversity (this was May 22), Cariuma recently gave their coveted OCA Low sneakers (W+G editors swear by these shoes—and so do celebs like Helen Mirren and Pete Davidson) a botanical-inspired makeover—and they’re the perfect cottagecore shoes for summer. Featuring two new wildflower prints on light and dark backgrounds, the recent launch is inspired by the biodiversity of meadows, which can contain over 100 species of wildflowers and supports pollinators such as honey bees and other insects that are vital to our ecosystem through an abundance of pollen and nectar.
In addition to raising awareness of the importance of biodiversity on our planet through style, these Cariuma shoes also give back through the brand’s tree-planting program. For every pair of shoes sold, Cariuma plants two trees as a way to support the overall health of our planet through reforestation efforts on indigenous land, including the Brazilian rainforest.
We love a shoe that talks the talk with style and a cause, but the Cariuma OCA Low sneakers also walk the walk (literally) with their quality, comfort, and sustainability. Not to mention: They cost less than $100.
We’ve dubbed the Cariuma OCA Low Floral Canvas Sneakers our sneakers of summer for their stunning wildflower print (which is available in a light and dark option), breathable material, and supreme comfort. The sneakers are constructed from an organic cotton canvas and feature a natural and ethically sourced rubber outsole and memory foam insole that keeps the soles comfortable, supported, and sturdy on the ground. On top of that, they are super lightweight, which adds to the comfort level.
Designed with a classic low tennis shoe style, the OCA Low sneakers go with virtually everything (even in a floral print) and are versatile enough to dress up or down, making them a go-to everyday shoe. The sneakers are also made with high-quality sustainable and ethically-sourced materials, making them one of the best eco-friendly shoes, too. The shoes are also unisex and available in both men’s and women’s sizes. In addition to the wildflower prints, the Cariuma OCA Low Sneakers also come in a variety of colors and other prints, plus a leather style that looks and feels super luxe.
