These Helen Mirren-approved Cariuma sneakers are under $80

If you like to stay up to date with the latest and greatest in sustainable fashion, you’ve probably heard of shoe brand Cariuma. Their sneakers are not only environmentally friendly, but also incredibly comfortable and versatile. So it makes sense that the brand’s most popular style, the Goose Low Sneakers, has sold out numerous times, racked up waitlists of thousands at a time, and has even graced the feet of A-list actress Helen Mirren.

The Oscar winner has been spotted a few times in the popular low-top sneakers, most notably at the 2021 Cannes Film Festival, where she stepped out in a vibrant green pair. While Helen paired her Cariuma shoes with a cute printed wrap dress, the canvas sneaker’s simple yet classic design would look good with just about everything from comfy leggings to tailored pants. Similar to other sneaker brands like Converse and Vans, Cariuma’s shoes are unisex (Robert Downey Jr. and Jon Hamm are also fans of the brand) and the Goose Lows range from size 5 to 13 for both men and women. And there are 18 styles to choose from!

The comfortable sneaker boasts a durable upper made from organic cotton canvas that is breathable and soft against the skin. The rest of the shoe is also environmentally friendly. The vegan insole is made with a mix of cork, bio memory foam and organic mamona oil, while the shoe’s lining, laces, threads and tags are created from recycled plastic bottles. Even better, the sneakers are produced in ethical factories, are shipped using carbon-neutral shipping, and are delivered in recycled packaging. Plus, for every pair you buy, the company will plant two trees, so you can really feel good about your purchase.

And Helen isn’t the only fan of low-top sneakers. Nearly 6,000 buyers have given them a five-star rating, and many have raved that they don’t have a break-in period. One called them “the best shoes ever”, before adding “I’m so happy with these shoes! There’s virtually no break-in period. They’re comfortable right out of the box!

Another said: “I own over 20 pairs of the shoes and the quality of this pair gives Nike a serious run for its money. Not only is this shoe ethically made, but the craftsmanship became evident from the outset. Many shoe brands cut corners, making shoes that wear out in a season, but I can tell you this pair will last a lifetime.

“I love this shoe. I love the look, the color and the amazing footbed that allows you to walk in it for hours,” said a third customer.

While you could think of a sustainable shoe that is comfortable, elegant And Celebrity-endorsed sneakers might set you back a few hundred dollars, but these popular sneakers can be yours for just $79!
