Cariuma Launches Made-To-Order Sneakers For Earth Day

There are a couple of things that we think of as made-to-order — Omakase sushi courses, a well-tailored suit, high-quality furniture that lasts — and sneakers, typically, aren't one of them. Or, at least, they weren't until Cariuma added custom-kicks to our list. The eco-friendly footwear imprint is celebrating Earth Day with a limited-edition drop of made-to-order sneakers from its fan-favorite IBI collection crafted out of bamboo-knit fibers. (ICYMI: the sustainable styles have been known to accumulate waitlists of 20,000+.) Like the original IBI shoe, Cariuma's custom sneaks retail at $98 and feature a low profile along with a lace-up design. The eco twist comes in with a new “Today Plants The Future” print on the side of the shoe as a daily reminder to be kinder to the planet.

The brand's just-dropped Earth Day sneaks are limited edition, meaning they'll only be available from today up until April 30 — cue the nine-day countdown to cop. As an extra Earth Day treat, Cariuma is planting ten trees (instead of one!) with every order placed on April 22. It's a win-win: new shoes for you and new green friends for Mother Earth. Since each pair will be made on-demand, they're slated to ship by June 7 at the latest. We know that's not the same as free two-day shipping — but, as the saying goes, the good things in life are usually worth waiting for.
