How do I find my size? +

We know how important it is to find your perfect fit. Here are a few helpful hints to size your sneaker just right.

How do I take care of my shoes? +

Canvas:

  • Hand-wash your sneakers with a brush or an old kitchen towel (to reach in between grooves) with neutral soap & cold water.
  • Do not machine wash or dry.

Suede:

  • Keep them away from water, and try a little TLC. Treat stains by hand using an eraser to rub away any marks, or use a brush or soft cloth to reach in between grooves. Brush away dirt in circular motions, whilst alternating direction (for tough stains, use a damp, clean cloth and dry the area with a hair dryer to remove any moisture).
  • Do not machine wash or dry.

Leather:

  • Prep your shoe: Remove and soak the laces in warm water with baking soda, and set aside. With your damp cloth, gently wipe down the exterior of the entire shoe to remove dirt on the surface of the shoe. Let dry.
  • Build up a soap lather using your cloth. Massage the soapy lather in small, gentle circles all over the leather upper to remove dirt. Wipe away, then repeat if necessary. Let shoes and laces dry completely.
  • Do not machine wash or dry.

Plaid:

  • Use a soft brush to brush any dust/stain that arises.
  • Do not machine wash or dry.
How do I take care of my new socks and/or shirt? +

First, socks! You can toss them in the washing machine, air-dry or line-dry them when done. Be sure to avoid bleaching and tumble-drying!

Next, shirts. You can toss your shirt in the washing machine and set it to cold. When it’s done, you can air-dry or iron on low heat. Be sure to avoid dry-cleaning, tumble-drying, line-drying, and bleaching to keep your shirt looking fresh. Washing it with similar colours is always recommended.

When will you release the next drop? +

    About Earth Day Edition Sneaker +
    We stand for less waste, more trees, and constant evolution. We wanted this sneaker to be equally value-driven: built to last, handcrafted with a blend of organic cotton + recycled canvas, featuring “burnt” no-fray lace tips and bio-based eyelets. We’re most excited about our brand-new BLOOM rubber, made with algae—an infinitely renewable resource we used to create an especially lightweight outsole.
    Is it a digital gift card? +
    Yes, it’s a digital gift card that we send directly to your email!

          How do I sign up? +

          2. To create an account, you’ll need to provide your phone number, name and email and link a debit card or bank account. Catch uses Plaid and Teller to link your bank in seconds—you’ve probably done this before if you have Venmo, Robinhood, or have filed your taxes online.

          3. If you already have a Catch account, just verify your phone number and pay.

          Is Catch free? +
          Yes! You’ll only earn money, never pay money.
          How does the sign up bonus work? +
          If it’s your first time using Catch, you’ll get a boost in store credit towards your next purchase in addition to what CARIUMA is offering. Your first order boost can only be redeemed at the brand you earned it at, CARIUMA.
          Are there any restrictions on my Catch credits? +

          Your CARIUMA credits can only be redeemed online at CARIUMA and must be used before they expire. To redeem, just pay with Catch again next time you’re shopping with us.

          You can’t earn or redeem credits on gift card purchases or subscriptions. Other than that, no restrictions!

          How will I redeem my credits? +

          Your credits will automatically be applied when you shop with us again and pay with Catch. You can also manage your credits at any time by logging into your Catch account.

          If you’d like to share the love, simply select “share as gift” in your Catch account to gift your credit to a friend so they can use it towards something special at CARIUMA.

          How does Catch make money? +
          Unlike other payment methods who take a cut of every transaction, Catch charges CARIUMA only when it drives value to our business. In other words, we pay Catch a small fee if and when you return and redeem your Catch-earned store credit.
          I can't find Catch at checkout. Where is it? +

          Navigate to the last step of checkout (where you usually enter your card details)

            1. Input your contact and shipping information

            2. Choose your preferred shipping method

            3. At the payment step - select 'Catch'

            4. Tap 'Pay Now' (no worries, you’ll be redirected to Catch and you won’t be charged until you hit 'Complete Order' on the next screen)

          You'll be redirected to 'Complete your purchase.' Once you are there, sign in to your Catch account, and your credits will automatically apply.
          Still having trouble finding Catch? It might be one of these reasons: +
        • You are in ShopPay: ShopPay sometimes automatically redirects users to it without giving you a choice of payment method. If you notice you are in ShopPay, just scroll to the bottom and click "Check out as guest". That will allow you to input your shipping information and select Catch as a payment method on the last step of the flow. After exiting ShopPay, the Catch option will be visible on the last step of checkout.
        • You have a gift card in your cart: Unfortunately, Catch cannot be used to purchase gift cards. If a gift card is in your cart, Catch won't be available as a payment option during checkout.
        • You are purchasing a subscription: Please note that subscription products cannot be bought using Catch. To utilize Catch, ensure a one-time purchase is added to your cart, where Catch will be available in the last step of checkout.
