We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again—and we’ll keep saying it until it really resonates with you — but stars really are just like us. Some might say that they put their pants on the same way we do, but we’d like to argue that they lace up their shoes just like us. And, if you’re looking for a great pair of shoes that just so happens to have an A-List following, allow us to introduce you to Cariuma

Founded in 2018, Cariuma is determined to rewrite the playbook for “cool-classic” sneakers. The mission? To create shoes that are comfortable, sustainable, and socially responsible. And, with a fan base including Dame Helen Mirren, it’s safe to say that the brand’s mission was accomplished. (We mean, she’s basically royalty so we can’t imagine a better endorsement.) 

Just in time for summer, Cariuma sneakers come in so many colors that’ll all brighten up your day. There are a few other stylish colors like a periwinkle blue that amp up the fun in your footwear. Of course, maybe you’re simply just looking for a new pair of white sneakers. Hurry, though, because many of these colorful picks are running out fast. But want to learn more about Cariuma? Even pick up a brand-new pair of shoes for yourself or someone else? We have you covered. Keep scrolling to check out every summer-loving options we have our sights on right now.
