Ah, the bandana. With its classic paisley pattern and incredible styling versatility, it’s remained a summertime style staple for decades. As of today, you can don bandana flair on your feet thanks to celeb-loved sneaker brand Cariuma. Just in time for the summer months ahead, the brand dropped a bandana-inspired rendition of its classic OCA Low Tops.

ICYMI: The sneaker brand, which has been worn by Helen Mirren and Nina Agdal, creates ultra-comfy, environmentally friendly kicks (FWIW, they plant two trees with every purchase). The shoes come in basic colors like black and white, but are also available in super-fun hues and patterns — as evidenced by the highly anticipated annual Pantone collection. Shoppers swear by the brand, calling their Cariumas “the best shoe [they’ve] ever worn,” adding that they’re “extremely comfortable.”

At $89, the new bandana-print sneakers feature Cariuma’s classic, ultra-popular OCA style: a low-rise sneaker that’s comfy enough for daily wear. In addition to the natural organic canvas body, the shoe features a natural rubber sole with just the right amount of bounce. The interior boasts a cushy yet supportive insole made from a blend of bio memory foam and cork, which delivers all-day comfort. Lastly, the laces and interior tags are made from recycled plastic. 

Like a bandana itself, the new printed canvas kicks are surprisingly versatile. Wear them with denim, loungewear, and for a true head-to-toe tribute, a bandana of some sort. Alternatively, take a cue from Helen Mirren — who stepped out in her Kelly green Cariuma low-tops wearing a matching skirt — and juxtapose the casual vibes of the sneaker with the dressiness of a flowy dress.

The shoes come in four hues — black, white, red, and blue  — which prove versatile and true to the colors most often associated with classic bandanas. Each of the options features the print’s unmistakable paisley pattern, printed in either white or black, depending on the body of the shoe. All feature a white sole and laces to complement the design without detracting. 

Snag Cariuma’s ultra-comfy OCA Low sneakers in the new bandana print, which are sure to become a summertime staple. Plus, if the classic print is any indication, this is a shoe you’ll wear for years to come.
