How to Style Sock Booties (Sustainable Brand Vivaia Shoes Review)

Vivaia is a brand that reached out to me about trying their sustainably made shoes. After researching them & finding out more about their company, I decided to give them a try! All views are my own and the shoes were gifted to me by Vivaia.

The number one great thing I was excited to learn about Vivaia is that their shoes are made with recycled plastic water bottles & ethically sourced wool (even the packaging that they send the shoes in is 100% recycled materials!). I was SO impressed with that fact, & even more so when I received the shoes & they were incredibly comfortable! A good portion of their shoes are even made to be machine washable which is also so convenient (unfortunately this pair is not because of the heel).

I chose the Zoe wool round-toe boots in my regular size (you just use their size chart to convert your US size to your EU size) and the color tan russet. It’s a beautiful brownish grey & it’s the perfect color that goes with just about anything (this pair is on sale right now for $83 and my code ma18 can get you an extra 18% off!).

Viviaia has a ton of shoe options on their site– boots, mules, loafers, flats, heels, sneakers, etc, and they also carry men’s shoes. Vivaia is considered a competitor of Rothys’ shoes, which I can’t speak to or review because I don’t own a pair, but they both are made for comfort & out of recycled materials. If you are interested in trying a pair of sustainably made shoes, Vivaia’s shoes start around $99, which is more affordable than Rothys are. They also seem to have more style options than Rothys.

All in all, I would definitely recommend Vivaia shoes to anyone looking for style, comfort, & sustainability. I’m looking forward to contining to wear and style my Zoe sock boots and to continue to support this brand!

I have styled these extremely versatile boots 3 different ways below. Most of my outfits are older pieces, but I will link similar options to what I’m wearing if you want to try to recreate look. I use affiliate links which means I earn a small commission if you purchase anything using my link, and it will be no additional cost to you. Thanks for your support! 🙂

Look number 1: A mockneck, cardigan & straight leg jeans.

This look is casual & comfy. I LOVE that these sock boots tuck perfectly into straight leg jeans. Makes them look so chic.

Look number 2: A mini boho dress.

The color of these boots pairs perfectly with black & I love that the taller shaft adds interest to an otherwise simple dress look.

Look number 3: A flowy top & skinny jeans.

The shaft of these boots is tight enough that they pair so well with skinny jeans too! Love that! Dress it up with a flowy blouse & you’ve got yourself a cute night out look.

Do you own sock boots yet? Which outfit would you wear?
