The Native Craze

Native Shoes

Natives. Natives. Natives. Everywhere you look people are walking around in these adorable holed shoes! I bet you've wondered, "Is that a Crocs sandal, a Converse, maybe a Toms shoe?" Well, you'd be almost correct. Although these wonderful and intriguing shoes have similar silhouettes, their design and style are beautifully unique. Before we encourage you to jump on the Native bandwagon, we'd like for you to learn a little about the company and their shoes.
In 2009, the increasingly popular company started in Vancouver, Canada. Damian Van Zyll De Jong, the founder, began the brand with only three different styles. During an interview with HypeBeast, he stated his inspiration came from his favorite aspects of different shoes, the desire to further footwear boundaries, and absence of shoes with a fresh and clean design.  Within just a few years, the company grew from three styles in Vancouver to over twenty different styles and available in forty-five countries! Check out what makes the simply cute shoes so lovable.
There are many reasons to like a shoe- comfort, support, style- but what makes a shoe exceptional? Environmental friendly. Practicality. Composition. Likability. Availability. When shoes are stylish, comfortable, eco-friendly, and washable, your feet feel happy to be wearing said shoes.
Let your feet be happy in Native shoes. The company takes pride in providing styles that are vegan, hand-washable, water proof, water-resistant, odor-resistant, and so much more. Each shoe has a molded, EVA injected footbed that'll keep your feet feeling fresh without weighing you down. This makes them perfect for any occasion. Seriously! Take your Natives to the pool or beach, on a stroll downtown, through the woods and grass, or even to school on a rainy day. Being water friendly, your pirate or princess can splish and splash in a light-weight shoes rather than a clunky rain galosh. Another spectacularly special quality about Native is how vibrant and different their colors are. Even better, they come in such a variety that you're sure to find a color that works for you and your kiddo.
