Making huge strides in the footwear industry is Vancouver based Native Shoes. Established in 2009, Native strives to incorporate everything they love about shoe design with new innovative technology. Ringing true to their motto to “keep it lite”, the inspiration was and still is to create a new and unique shoe with the same classic and casual designs that are easy to wear, and suit everybody.
The Corrado The Miller
As we gear up for the fall season, Native has been hard at work creating their spring 2013 line. The much anticipated collection will feature the same original and stylish silhouettes Native is known for with just an added touch of flare in the form playful prints and patterns, including polka dots and stripes, all in a variety of new colors like bright pastels and bold hues – designed to match their on-location look-book shoot in Rio de Janerio, Brazil. Next spring opt for the Blanca t-strap sandal as Native will be reintroducing this women’s only style as unisex, made with premium recycled leather.
The Fitzsimmons The Jimmy
While we patiently wait for the arrival of this new collection, we can indulge our shopping senses with Native’s Fall 2012 line which features a variety of durable, water and weather-proof designs perfect for our Canadian style. My Fall footwear favorites are Native’s hiking boot-esque Fitzsimmons shoe, and the puddle worthy Jimmy boot. The Fitzsimmons combines a rugged, outdoors style with Native’s lightweight innovation to create the perfect season-appropriate shoe, while the Jimmy is sleek, rain-proof and sure to be a Winter must-have among the fashion set.
The Verona The Hugo
Native’s inaugural styles, such as the Miller and Corrado are also stand-out selections, as are their new casual models the Verona and Hugo – all are designed with a slip-on running shoe vibe to capture that timeless yet fresh look that has Native quickly becoming one of Canada’s hottest, and most sought after footwear companies.
In retailers across Canada and available online finding the perfect Native shoe is only a click away. Visit the Native website at www.nativeshoes.com to find a location near you or to shop the collection.
