Pantone just announced its 2023 Color of the Year: Viva Magenta, which is a bright red hue that's inspired by nature. According to Pantone, the color is “powerful and empowering” and “promotes a joyous and optimistic celebration, writing a new narrative,” which sounds like a great way to start the new year. 

And along with the new color, Pantone worked with sneaker brand Cariuma to create a new sneaker collection featuring the fresh color. With six designs available, there’s a style for everyone in the collection (Oca Low, Oca High, Salvas, Naioca, and Ibi Slip On), and they’re available in Viva Magenta and white with Viva Magenta accents. 

Cariuma’s sneakers have previously prompted waitlists of thousands of shoppers, so get this style while you still can.

All of the brand’s sneakers are made using natural and recycled materials, including organic cotton, natural rubber, bamboo, cork, and recycled plastic, and are manufactured in ethical factories using environmentally-friendly production practices. They’re also shipped in recycled and recyclable packaging, and 65 percent of the brand’s shoes are 100 percent vegan. Plus, Cariuma plants two trees for every pair of sneakers sold.
