Native Shoes

As much as we girls love our stilettos, ballerina flats and every shoe in between, sometimes there are places where our beloved footwear fears to tread. Think muddy days spent gardening or doing yard work, camping trips, canoeing and kayaking, and walks along the beach. Instead of reaching for the ugly plastic shoes that fashionistas love to hate when you're about to embark on a grubby activity, why not opt for a pair of Native Shoes? Founded in 2009 right here in Vancouver, Native Shoes uses injection-molded EVA for their designs. The resulting shoes are lightweight, comfortable, odor-resistant and breathable. Best of all, their sleek styling mimics classic casual shoes like Vans, Converse low-tops, Keds, loafers and top-siders.

For a full list of stockists, check out their website. In Vancouver, Native Shoes are sold at Walrus Home.

  1. My boyfriend got a pair of those when he went on his work retreat since they were going to be camping. I'm really not a big fan, I don't think they're much better than crocs-but for beach/camping/garden shoes I do think they're good-but I wouldn't wear them anywhere else!

  8. Just to clarify - do you own a pair of Natives? If so, will they make an appearance in a future outfit post?
