Cariuma Oca Low Review: The Best Durable White Sneakers
Not only did the Cariuma Oca low-top sneaker hold up to its crisp color in the midst of city life (a miracle, basically), but it made me feel at ease. I actually got one of my top five favorite compliments from them – I’ll make a scene.
It was an extremely hot Friday in July, and I was meeting my dear friend and her 2-year-old at a park in Clinton Hill, Brooklyn. You see, her daughter goes to preschool where they speak French with the baby, and my friend said my sneakers made me look like one of the French moms she sees at preschool. That was a long way of saying that these shoes are tri-chic.
And of course, I wouldn’t be recommending these puppies if they weren’t extremely comfortable. That’s saying something because I walk throughout. (Hey, walking around with a hot girl keeps your heart healthy.) The cork insole provides the right amount of support and cushioning, but it doesn’t make the vegan sneaker too heavy or clunky. It’s actually the lightest sneaker in my collection, which means it’s the easiest to slip on and comfortable to wear all day.
My only caveat is that the bottom of the shoe requires special invisible socks if you prefer the sockless look. However, that’s a small price to pay for a sneaker that looks good with any outfit.
