Canadian Spotlight: Native Shoes

While working at TIFF these past 2 weeks I was introduced to Native Shoes. Founded in Vancouver by Damian Van Zyll De Jong these lightweight foam-injection molded-EVA shoes are antimicrobial and odor resistant making them perfect for weekend errand-running or lazy days at the cottage.
They have five main shoe styles that are “inspired by classic, casual silhouettes” in a wide array of colours but they also make a rainboot, hiking shoe and their new addition, a winter boot.

Now many may be quick to dismiss these croc-look alikes but after I picked up a pair of “torch red millers” I can tell you that these are shoes you won’t be embarrassed to wear in public. I paired mine with dark jeans and casual top and received many compliments.

Since their inception in 2009 they’ve quickly garnered wide-spread attention and a celebrity following including Halle Berry’s little girl, Sasha Obama and features in Glamour and Marie Claire magazine.

I only wish I’d discovered these before fall!

Your fashion fairy,
