With the aspiration to revolutionize skate footwear ethically and put an end to subpar industrial products and feigned interest in sustainability or social responsibility, Cariuma‘s co-founders David & Fernando from Brazil fulfilled this long-awaited dream in 2018 to build a company and brand that would better serve people and the planet. United by their love for board sports, they have a clear goal in mind: To positively and sustainably influence the lifestyle and action sports scene. Their mission, as a B-Corp certified company, is to unite ethics and performance in footwear, and it is already bearing visible fruits: CARIUMA is establishing itself as a favored sneaker label in the segments of Skate and Surf .


CARIUMA makes vintage-inspired, classic sneakers that customers can wear through every season. In love with an old-school aesthetic as long as it’s made with new-school ethics. CARIUMA constantly sources & crafts greener innovations and develops new materials to create sneakers that are lightweight, durable and come with that perfect already broken-in fit.


For every pair of CARIUMA shoes sold, two trees are planted in the Brazilian rainforest. To preserve biodiversity, CARIUMA has launched its own reforestation initiative, which is internally managed. In production and packaging, the company pays careful attention to selecting environmentally friendly resources and materials, such as GOTS-certified organic cotton, natural rubber, sugarcane, bamboo, cork, vegan or LWG-certified leather, and recycled nylon, paper, and PET.
