Cariuma Sneakers: 5 reasons you need these

We recently drove along northern Spain, hitting the hotspots, walking between 8 -12 miles each day in our Cariuma sneakers. We prefer to walk rather than take public transportation since we’ve found it’s the best way to actually get a ‘feel’ for the city. Most cities are fairly simple to navigate, and we enjoy stumbling into pockets of history, charm and beauty.


It’s important to travel with a comfy pair of walking shoes, and call me dorky, but after I discovered how comfortable my Cariuma sneakers were, I had to get a pair for Hot Hubby.

We hiked up here in our Cariuma sneakers!

We both wore our ICI Cariuma stone grey sneakers, the whole trip, and I can honestly say it was like we were walking on a foam mattress.

Here are 5 reasons you NEED to pack these Cariuma sneakers for your travels:

  1. They are seriously comfortable from the first wear. I mean, Hot Hubby pulled off the tags, popped them on his feet and walked 8 miles. No blisters. Nothing. Makes sense since their insoles are crafted with a hybrid of memory foam and natural vegetable tanned leather, for optimal comfort.
  2. They are stylish with an old-school vibe but with new-school ethics. You can look good wearing them and feel good about wearing them.
  3. Cariuma values the environment and their craftsmen. They source high-quality materials and pay their craftsmen fair wages, all while providing safe working conditions.
  4. Often, sustainable or ethical shoes are more expensive, but Cariuma offers classic and versatile sneakers at an affordable price point.
  5. For me, the best part about Cariuma shoes is they are 100% carbon neutral. The shoe production AND the shipping.

I cannot sing the praises of our Cariuma sneakers any more. Sure we may have moved into the matchy matchy phase of our relationship, but hey, we literally walked about 12 miles per day on cobbled streets, and our feet were happy!

I encourage you to check out their gorgeous collection and read their story. I know you’ll fall in love with their vibrant colors and styles, and find a pair (or two) that you love!
