That’s it. We’re done this time. We really mean it — and we won’t go back on our word. It’s just not worth it anymore. Oh, what are we talking about, exactly? Wearing painful and uncomfortable high heels, of course!

Heels are pretty and all, but that’s often where the compliments end. Shoes shouldn’t be dangerous — only dangerously stylish! That’s why instead of wasting our money on a pair of stilettos we can’t wear out without an entire box of bandages in our bag, we’re opting for something better. High heels? No. High-tops? Oh, yes!

This is not your normal, everyday sneaker. Its quality is through the roof and “its comfort level is at 200%.” Reviewers are calling it “an instant favorite” that they “couldn’t be happier with.” They say it’s “hard to beat” in every aspect, noting that it offers “true comfort.” The CATIBA High is so undeniably perfect that one shopper even said they wanted the white version for their wedding!

These high-tops have a full-grain, premium leather upper with a logo detail at the sides. The lining of the collar is leather as well, because if Cariuma is going to do high-tops, it’s going to do them right. The brand also does everything with sustainability in mind — reusing and treating 100% of the water used in the leather process!

Inside these shoes is a breathable cotton lining and Cariuma’s signature removable insole. This hybrid insole is a combination of lightweight memory foam and vegetable-tanned leather, molding to your feet for a fit that only gets better and better with each wear. Back on the outside is a fully-stitched white outsole with 100% slip-resistant, durable rubber, so when we say these will get better with each wear, we’re talking, like, a lot of wears!

These shoes are currently available in three colors that you can wear every single day. There’s White, White/Black, which has a black logo detail on a white upper, and Black. A few sizes are starting to go, so pick your favorite and grab it! Grabbing these as a gift for someone else instead? Grab their favorite shade and rest easy, because Cariuma offers complimentary gift packaging!

As if having these sneakers shipped to us wasn’t exciting enough, knowing that they’re coming in recycled packaging and that the transportation process is 100% carbon neutral just makes us smile that much wider. We just cannot wait to show these shoes off, and our feet cannot wait to wear them. Bye, heels! It was nice knowing you…not.
