Cool footwear / Native shoes

Inspired by classics such as Keds, Converse and Vans, Native Shoes are made of EVA-foam-injected moulded material (EVA does not require a plasticizer to obtain its flexibility, making it bisphenol-a and phthalate free). Vibrant colors and slip-ons, a fair price, lightweight, antimicrobial,  these casual-chic sandals are a must for your walk on the beach or a not so fancy dinner party. Designed in Vancouver and made in China.

Now, we have to mention that we heard that some of you think they are a spin-off of Crocs or that they just simply look bad. That's ok, but because of their eco-friendly aspects, they deserve some love; mono-material means easy to recycle. On a more technical note, they do tend to become a bit sweaty after a while and if the temperature drops, you might think of wearing socks ... the horror !

These are the ones i got : click here.

Also, we always enjoy a nice manufacturing tour  : Native factory video
