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.
