Pantone's 2022 Color of the Year is here, and it's unlike any other color the Pantone Color Institute has announced before. Instead of picking a color from its collection of existing hues, it created an entirely new one called Very Peri, a periwinkle color featuring shades of blue and purple. To celebrate the new color, Pantone teamed up with popular sneaker brand Cariuma to create three shoes featuring Very Peri, and if history is any indication, they'll be sold out before you know it.

The limited-edition styles include Cariuma's classic OCA Low sneaker in Very Peri and in white with Very Peri accents. The Catiba Pro sneaker, which has a higher top and a side design, also comes in Pantone's latest color of the year while supplies last. All three styles are emblazoned with Pantone's logo on the outside canvas, the insole, and the tongue, setting them apart from Cariuma's other styles.

This is the fourth time Cariuma and Pantone have collaborated on colorful sneakers together. In the past, their limited-edition styles have sold out quickly, including the classic blue sneakers they released in 2020 and the gray and yellow styles from 2021.

All of Cariuma's sneakers are made with sustainable practices. They feature organic cotton canvas, natural rubber, recycled plastics, and cork insoles. And for each pair of shoes bought, the brand plants a pair of trees in the Brazilian rainforest.

While sustainability is a key factor in how Cariuma produces its sneakers, it doesn't make them any less supportive or stylish. Thousands of people have left the shoes five-star reviews, and many comment on how comfortable they are.

"These sneakers are so comfortable and cute," one OCA Low reviewer wrote. "I am a teacher, so I am on my feet all day. I love that I did not sacrifice comfort nor style.

Another called the Catiba Pro sneakers their "new favorite shoes," adding, "I love the fit and the way they look. I'm sure I'll be buying them in a few colors!"

You can order Cariuma's supportive, stylish shoes anytime, but there's no telling how quickly its limited-edition Pantone Color of the Year 2022 styles will stay in stock. Head to Cariuma to pick up a pair of shoes in trending Very Peri while you can.
