Native Shoes was established in Vancouver, Canada in 2009 with a vision to create ‘Future Classics’ by combining iconic, casual silhouettes with the best of evolving technology. The result is lightweight, future forward shoes that have find a great niche in the hyper-populated world of sneakers. Fast forward almost 7 years and Native Shoes has evolved from an idea, into a worldwide brand with stockists in over 40 countries and collections dropping seasonally.
There’s hints of your favourite silhouettes in Native Shoes, a splash of Roshe and perhaps a dabble of Pure Boost 2.0, but it’s the materials and the colours that set them apart and keeps them a little different. The shoes are made from an injection moulded EVA, which creates extreme comfort and also extreme flexibility with colouring, which is evident in the styles below. Throw in the affordable price point and you begin to understand why Native Shoes has some momentum.
This month, Native Shoes are excited to deliver their latest collection of Future Classics. This season Native introduces the Apollo XL – an ultra-light version of Native’s classic Apollo – this new style is prepared-for-airflow with a laser-cut dynamic perforated upper. Easy to slip on, the Apollo XL boasts a shock absorbent EVA outsole, rubber toe and heel inserts and expertly chiseled features. More than anything Native Shoes offers something different in a market that seems to go from one trend to another. The bold colours combined with unique use of materials makes for a shoe like no other, and if they are a little ‘out there’ for you, then I think Native Shoes have done their job.
