Perfection is something that should rarely be messed with, but in a few (very rare instances), it is possible to make perfection even better. 

Such is the case with Cariuma’s limited-edition sneaker that just launched today. Designed in collaboration with streetwear brand Krost, the newest addition to the OCA Low Top family has all the tried-and-true features of the original style —  like a slip-resistant rubber sole, a memory foam insole, and a sleek, timeless silhouette — but with a hint of Krost’s signature, street-cool touch. See: The black suede upper material and the yellow leather backing embossed with the brand name. Even more perfect.

Cariuma’s sneakers are known to rack up massive waitlists. The original OCA Low Top once had 8,000 people queued up in a (virtual) line after the initial drop sold out almost instantly. Since then, every collab that’s reworked the OCA Low, like the buzzy Pantone partnership, has also sold out in the blink of an eye. That’s why we’re not at all surprised that the Cariuma x Krost limited-edition kicks are already showing low-stock alerts. The lesson here? Grab them today, or risk them being gone tomorrow.

If you need any more convincing that this low-top sneaker is an absolute must in your footwear lineup, take your attention to the stars. Supermodels and A-list celebs alike are very much aboard the Cariuma train. Nina Adgal and Whitney Port regularly rock their Cariumas, as do Hollywood heartthrobs like Jon Hamm and Noah Centineo — and it’s probably only going to be a matter of days until they start stepping out in the Cariuma x Krost style (bet!). Basically, these kicks cater to everyone, because really, who doesn’t want a sneaker that’s sustainable, stylish, and comfortable? We definitely do.

Shop the Cariuma x Krost limited-edition sneakers for under-$100 stat. You’ll be so happy you did. Bonus: With every single purchase (of these shoes or another), Cariuma will plant a pair of trees in the Brazilian Rainforest. And that's all the more reason to buy these kicks.
