Cariuma’s Knit Sneaker Racked Up a 12,000 Person Waitlist, And It's *Finally* Back In Stock

editor@purewow.com (PureWow)

It's not every day that you see a shoe with a 12,000 person waitlist. Unless they’re Meghan Markle's favorites, of course. But in this case, the hype around Cariuma's IBI sneaker comes from the fact that they're sustainably-made, comfortable and cute. Oh, and did we mention they’re machine-washable too?

The all-vegan upper fabric is made from a proprietary blend of bamboo and recycled plastic from water bottles, while the soles are crafted from ultra-light Sugar Cane EVA. The result? A shoe that’s way more comfortable than the leather and canvas kicks you’re used to sporting. Wearers are obsessed. “I've fallen in love with my Cariumas. They're super comfortable and so lightweight! And I love love love how environmentally-friendly they are!” one woman writes.

"This sneaker offers quality and comfort without sacrificing looks," says another.

Considering Cariuma spent a whole year developing this shoe, complete with six different designs for the upper and four for the shoe itself, we're not surprised. Now that they're back in stock, we're guessing their popularity will only increase. Here, shop five of our favorite colorways (while you still can).
