Cariuma Sneakers Just Launched Its First Shoe for Children, So Your Kid Can Be the Coolest (and Comfiest) on the Playground

A pair for them, a pair for you

Back-to-school shopping is in full swing, and if there's one thing we just know is on your list, it's an easy-on, everyday pair of kicks for your mini-me. (Bonus points if they're recess-appropriate.) Well, consider *that* box checked thanks to Cariuma. The celebrity-favorite, PureWow editor-approved sneaker brand just launched its first-ever kids' kicks ($55)—and you can bet the sneaks will have your little one looking cool and feeling good both on and off the playground.

Following in the footsteps of its grown-up counterparts ($79), the new OCA Low kids' shoe is 100 percent vegan, crafted with an organic cotton canvas upper, a slip-resistant rubber outsole and the brand's signature cushy insole (made from cork, bio memory foam and organic mamona oil). But to up the comfort and support level for tiny tootsies, the brand added a softer mesh lining and more cushioning around the ankles. Throw in the fact that this style swaps the laces for a pair of headache-free velcro straps, and we'd say Cariuma thought of *everything* to create the perfect pair of children's sneakers.


The sneaker is available in sizes K6 through Y2, which should cover kiddos ranging from small toddlers to 8-year-olds. The shoes also come in four colors: off-white, black, rose and shadow blue, so you're bound to find their favorite hue.

Better yet, since the brand takes pride in its ethical and eco-conscious production philosophy, two trees are planted for every pair sold. So not only will you be investing in your child's feet, you'll also be investing in their future (and the planet's).

And hey, while you're at it, you might as well peruse some new Cariuma shoes of your own—after all, you'll need comfy kicks to take you from school drop-offs to soccer practice. No judgment, mama.
