The perfect fall sneaker does not exi—
Fall-i-fying your wardrobe for the changing season could mean a complete overhaul or just a few easy swaps. Either way, you’re going to need a fall-friendly sneaker that’s versatile enough to go with all your autumn clothing staples, from blazers and tights to shackets and jeans.
In comes Cariuma’s latest sneaker launch, which is not only cute, but also good for the planet. This editor-loved brand first came on our radar when its signature Salvas leather sneaker sold out more than five times since launching in 2022. Luckily, some of its most popular styles are finally back in stock again (phewf!), and—even better—Cariuma has dropped two new black and brown plaid upper styles to its Oca line that are now available for preorder.
Oca Low Black Plaid
Oca Low Brown Plaid
Available in two of its most popular styles, Oca Low and Oca High, the plaid uppers are more sustainable than ever. In lieu of virgin plastics, each recycled plaid upper is made from two 1.2-liter plastic bottles, which could otherwise end up in our landfills or oceans.
The rest of the shoe is planet-friendly, too, with an organic cotton canvas lining, a sturdy and lightweight natural rubber sole, and a bio-based vegan insole made with mamona oil instead of petroleum . Plus, with every pair you buy, Cariuma plants two trees in the Brazilian rainforest. Fall fashionista, yes, but now you can also add “environmentalist” to your resume.

Our editors love the extra cushiness of Cariuma insoles so much that we’ve even gone on record saying they don’t even need to be broken in. But reviewers love Cariuma equally as much as we do—if not more!
One five-star reviewer said of the new launch, “Once again, Cariuma is on point. Quality? Check. Fit? Check. Style? Check!”
Another shopper who rated the Oca High Brown Plaid Sneakers five stars called them “a beautiful, high-quality shoe,” adding that “these shoes really stand out” and are “worth the price tag.”

Comfortable enough for everyday wear, the two new plaid styles deliver ultimate warm and cozy vibes, just in time for fall. Prices start at $89, so grab ‘em now before they sell out! If you need more all-weather sneakers for your fall closet refresh, keep scrolling for some other Cariuma favorites.
