NATIVE SHOES

When Vancouver designers Damian Van Zyll De Jong and Matthew Penne launched Native shoes in 2009 they instantly received accolades from the public and their peers. Native shoes are unique, comfortable, durable, lightweight, washable, and available in a whole spectrum of vivid colors.

Their original collection was made from 100% EVA (Ethylene-vinyl acetate), which is an environmentally amphibious material, antimicrobial and odor resistant. Combine that with a manufacturing process that creates next-to-zero energy emissions, and you quickly understand that Damian and Matthew care about the environment. But, Native also has their finger on the pulse of fashion.

When Native shoes decided to put classic designs in a modern EVA package, they created their own category. The first three models released were the Miller, Corrado and Jefferson. Here's the breakdown:

Native Miller - Laid-back model featuring a simple Vans Authentic-inspired design with a slip-on application.

Native Corrado - Draws inspiration from the moccasin and flips it into a fashionable creation.

Native Jefferson - This is the new EVA version that was obviously inspired by the timeless Converse Chuck Taylor.

Native's first collection was a huge success and they attracted everyone from sneakerheads and hippies to fashionistas. I think it's safe to say Native will keep surprising us with new and fresh designs, so be on the lookout.

These are great for winter, the neoprene lining with microfleece keep your feet really warm. The shoes themselves are the lightest thing ever.
