Here’s the thing: At the PureWow office, a lot of us are kind of sneakerheads. We love sporting kicks almost as much as we love the allure of a four-figure waitlist. Remember this? Yea, we were just as curious about the highly coveted shoes as you were. So when three of our editors got the chance to try out Cariuma’s best-selling sneaker, the canvas OCA, we jumped at the opportunity—footie socks at the ready and shoehorns in hand.
FYI: The first round of Cariuma shoes that flew off the shelves were knit. These are made with fair-trade cotton canvas. And while some iterations by the brand featured leather, these are entirely vegan, using raw natural rubber, cork and mamona oil. Intriguing, right? Here's what our editors had to say, and if you’re interested in trying them for yourself, enter code “PUREWOW” for 15 percent off at checkout.
