It's not every day that you see a shoe with a 5,000 person waitlist. Unless maybe 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.
The all-vegan shoes' fabric made is from a proprietary blend of bamboo and recycled plastic from water bottles, and their soles are made from ultra-light Sugar Cane EVA. And 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).

This dusty rose shade has us dreaming of springtime. But you better believe we'll be breaking them out on any and all winter days above 50 degrees.
2. Cariuma IBI Mineral Blue Knit Sneaker
A deep blue that's ideal for everyday wear.
3. Cariuma IBI Off White Knit Sneaker
We'll be ditching our Keds in favor of this cuter, environmentally-friendlier pair.
