Can eco-friendly footwear be pretty?? Today I’m sharing three feminine sustainable footwear options from VIVAIA – a flat, a heel and a boot. Read on for my honest thoughts and a full VIVAIA shoes review!
VIVAIA Shoes Review: Feminine Sustainable Footwear
Allow me to introduce you to VIVAIA shoes, a sustainable footwear brand that creates high-quality, luxurious and fashion forward designs at a fair price 🙂 Upon first glance, I wasn’t sure what to think as I had never worn shoes with knit fabric before. Once they arrived in person, I was pleasantly surprised by how GORGEOUS and high quality they were!
What also makes VIVAIA shoes special is the fact that they are completely eco-friendly – from the process to the fabric to the design to the packaging. They even created their own fabric out of water bottles!! It’s absolutely incredible! As someone that avidly recycles water bottles, it’s so neat to see that they are being reimagined into something beautiful and timeless.
Do VIVAIA shoes run true to size? I’d say yes, they do for the most part. Some may run a bit narrower (read more below). Where are VIVAIA shoes made in, you ask? VIVAIA shoes country of origin is China for manufacturing.
VIVAIA has a variety of shoe designs ranging from classic and elegant to trendy and unique. There’s definitely a style for everyone and I’m so excited to share which of their sustainable footwear options that I chose for my wardrobe.

The first pair that I picked out for this VIVAIA shoes review were these adorable pink bow flats! The color is sooooo pretty and this design includes interchangeable bows along with a subtle sparkle. The fabric is super comfy and stretches to fit (great for any foot width). This pair is also machine washable and has a deodorizing insole. These pointed toe shoes conform to your feet so walking is a breeze! These VIVAIA flats also easily fold up, which is convenient for travel or keeping in a handbag when your out and about. I think that they would look adorable with pretty much everything – skirts, dresses, jeans, etc!
I’ve dubbed this sustainable shoe my “Little Black Heel” 😉 Normally I gravitate toward lighter neutrals but I’ve been making more of an effort to include black in my wardrobe as of late. The design is super feminine and slightly retro with a Parisian chic look. This black bow heel goes with absolutely everything and works for a variety of styles and seasons. This VIVAIA heel is a comfortable height and is also made of eco-friendly materials.
This also showcases VIVAIA’s iconic knit fabric but I will say that this one has far less stretch than the other two. I got my normal size in all of these eco-friendly shoes but I would recommend going up half a size. They do stretch a bit over time as you wear them but sadly, they are not wide feet friendly.
I have to say – I am obsessed with these darling cream knit boots!! I’ve also noticed this style of knit boot trending this season so I have to say that I think VIVAIA is on to something 😉 They are incredibly comfortable and warm and showcase the same stretchy knit material (great for all foot widths). This knit boot features a unique heel, a lace up closure and wool detailing along the top. The heel height is very comfortable and they are super easily to walk in. The color is a gorgeous cream making it extremely versatile for any look. I think this VIVAIA boot would look great with tights, dresses, maxi’s and even jeans.
