Whether working from home, in the office a few days a week or in one for five days, having the right clothing and shoes can make a big difference. While some offices may still implore a full business fit, many are moving in the more flexible direction of business casual dress codes.
And that’s where a good pair of super cozy, comfortable, and fashion-forward shoes come in. Sure, you could go for a pair of Cole Haans or a chukka-style boot, but there is something fun about rocking a sleek, stylish pair of sneakers to the office.
Luckily, eco-conscious shoe brand Cariuma achieves this with styles that feature both white and colored soles and numerous materials to pick from. Plus, Cariuma gives back in a similar vein to Allbirds. Right now, you can score free -shipping on shoes with the code “NEWSHOES.”
You can see the entire collection of kicks for men and women here, including collaborations, but we’re sharing some of our favorites ahead.

Brown is a classic business casual shoe color, and for a good reason! It goes with a variety of colors or styles of pants and is more subtle than bright white or a busy design. This suede camel option from Cariuma strikes with a cool two-tone look from the sole to the shoe. It’s a classic low-rise sneaker; if you prefer a different shade, it comes in 10 other options. It’s available for men and women and has rave reviews. One shopper who rated them five stars shared, “the insole is so supportive. I can walk in them all day–running errands, shopping, etc.–and my feet don’t feel tired.”
If you are alright spending a bit more, and still scoring free shipping, we’d consider these two picks at $139.
You can’t go wrong with a leather shoe, and this one strikes a strong silhouette. Cariuma’s All Black Premium Leather is precisely what the name describes, in a low-height, classic-looking shoe. Whether you pair these with dark jeans or khakis, you’ll look sharp and not be worried about straining your feet, even if you stand all day, thanks to the comfortable insole.
This option also comes in gray, brown, nude (which is camel-like), and white leather–all for the same $139 price. Separately, as part of the environmentally friendly mission, when you buy a pair of these, the brand will plant two trees.
If you’re looking for a slightly higher build and with a bit more character, consider the Valley from Cariuma. It’s the brands take on a classic white sneaker like Nike’s Air Force One. It’s a skate shoe featuring a leather outsole that’s paired with a mesh inner, an insole made from foam and cork, and lastly a rubber sole. The laces are made with organic cotton and recycled plastics with the aglets–that piece at the end of a lace–made from debossed metal.
