If you've been looking for shoes that are environmentally conscious, durable, and fashionable, look no further than Cariuma's IBI Slip-On. These shoes have the lowest carbon footprint of any sneaker. Ever. According to a March 2021 study, each pair has a carbon emission of 5.48kg CO₂e. Beyond that, the slip-on sneakers are super comfortable and come with lightweight, removable memory foam. The shoes are available in men's and women's sizes and there are eight colors to choose from. They're built to last and they're even machine-washable.
