Every once in a while, a sneaker comes along that gives you the feeling that it simply belongs in your closet — especially when it checks the necessary boxes of being comfortable, supportive, and even ethically made. The latest launch from Cariuma, the brand behind your favorite celebs' favorite comfy sneakers, is just that: a shoe that ties together your travel style with ease, all while keeping you feeling fresh on your feet. Enter, the Cariuma Uba Sneakers.

Cariuma White Premium Leather


A mix between a skate shoe and a basketball sneaker, the newest addition to the Cariuma catalog boasts all the same features that shoppers love from the brand's other shoe offerings, alongside a modern twist that will set your footwear collection apart from other tourists this summer. These effortlessly cool sneakers mark the brand's first-ever cupsole design, which is popular for providing stability alongside its support-boosting, high-cut silhouette around the ankle. The enhanced soles work to secure your foot from all angles and assure you that, no matter what’s on your to-do list for the day, these are the shoes for the job.

The exterior of these elevated streetwear sneakers is made from LWG-Certified premium leather with suede detailing, while the insoles still feature the brand's signature cork and foam combination that molds to your unique foot shape for the most personalized wear experience possible. They’re even available in men’s and women’s sizes, ranging from 5 to 15 (including half sizes), with three leather-centric colors and three mixed-medium options.

The outsoles of these shoes also don't stray far from other styles on the site; they're made with slip-resistant rubber, which is an essential factor when taking on the cobblestone streets across Europe in the coming months, or even simply staying safe while running errands around town. But it’s the '90s look of these shoes that really makes them stand out. Not only can the vintage-inspired sneakers be paired with denim shorts or your favorite jeans, but they’ll even look great with a maxi skirt or dress — essentially, they’re a match for every outfit combination in your suitcase.

Plus, you can take solace in knowing that for every pair of Cariuma sneakers sold, the brand plants two trees in the Brazilian rainforest to support its mission of reforestation and ethical practices. So you can shop guilt-free knowing the materials that the shoes are made of contribute to the actual ethos of the brand, and that the Uba Sneakers are made with your comfort and the greater good of the planet in mind.
