VIVAIA was founded with a mission to create stylish and sustainable footwear that is eco-friendly and responsible. With a focus on creating a positive impact on both the world and the people around us, they successfully created a line of luxurious and fashion-forward footwear with exceptional quality and at a fair price. By not working with big retailers, they reduce CO2 and price markups that nobody wants.
Using recycled materials and 3D technology, Vivaia talented team has established a zero-waste process to create a seamless 3D knitted design for the ultimate combination of comfort and function. Stretchy and super soft, the upper knit molds to my foot to perfection, is breathable and won’t give any trouble while walking. The new updated Vivaia Aria 5 has improved heel padding (no more blisters), and a wider toe box to free your toes.
Every Vivaia Aria 5 flat shoe is made from 100% Recycled & Renewable Materials, with the added comfort of a sneaker, with an increased arch support, better heel cushioning and high elasticity!
They are made from 6 recycled plastic bottles and is machine washable, but you can definitely hand wash them too and air dry, especially in the hot climates, and they dry super quickly in about 1 hour.
The padded insole is made from natural wormwood and PU foam with Artemisia, that inhibits bacterial growth, with arch support , moisture wicking and odor resistant and shock absorbing cushion foam. These are really soft, so if you always on your feet, these help a lot.
Non slip rubber resistant sole is crafted using carbon free materials for less wear and tear on the environment and a design that you can easily fold and carry in you purse if you need a back up. Easy to slip on and built for any terrain or activity, so you won’t miss out on anything.
Minimal cardboard packaging made from recycled materials that can be recycled again and I must say, with the gold lettering, the cardboard box looks stylish. I’m one of those people that, when in winter, I store my summer shoes in boxes, so the cardboard interior that hold shape is genius.
True to size, very comfortable and so stylish, but check out Vivaia.com because they have a large variety of designs and colors to choose from, from sandals, flats and heels and also boots. Once you’ll put these on, you’ll feel like they are glued to your feet, almost like your have noting on, and I’m pretty sure you want something that light, especially in the summer.
I’m really happy to see more conscious brands that try to do more about our plastic pollution, but don’t forget, next time when you shop, refuse a plastic bag, buy a plastic free item or even borrow one.
