We like to ensure you never miss a trick and lads, this one’ s for you. No, it’s not a pair of Crocs, don’t worry, these are way cooler. Say hello to the quirky Canadian brand, Native Shoes as they land at schuh, serving up some summer freshness for your next adventure.
Ok, Ok, we all know what you’re thinking – they look like the love child of Crocs and Vans. And yes, some might say they’re not technically trainers, they’re not canvas, nor are they vulcanised but rest assured, in-keeping with their motto ‘keep it lite’ and their key ingredient ‘liteness’, Native Shoe bodes comfort and style more than your fellow favourites. So we guess they’re kind of like Crocs but seriously way cooler? Convinced yet?

Born in 2009 fresh out of the alpine forests of Vancouver in Canada, Native Shoes envisioned themselves as a brand that creates happiness and enlightens lives. We all know that happy feet equal a happy sole. So, by keeping a simplistic approach with their choice of colours and construction, Native have pretty much nailed it. Combining causal silhouettes with lightweight injection-moulded EVA material, as well as innovative micro-fibre material and breathable mesh, the fun and quirky brand create what they call ‘Future Classics’. Their cloud-walking abilities are perfect for city wayfarers, beach goers and explorers alike.

Not only are Native shoes affordable and easy-to-wear, the brand pride themselves in being completely vegan friendly or as they like to put it – ‘Beast Free’. That’s right, not a single hair or animal hide, unicorns or Chewbacca’s are used in the construction of their shoes. Being a brand that is Beast Free means that they respect both their animal friends and the choices you make in life. Nice, eh? Now if that doesn’t convince you, what will?
So lads, it’s quite simply really; don’t be worried people will think you’re wearing Crocs, this totally transitional brand wants you to get on board with the newest Native species and their no new-fangled nonsense. It’s time to get the legs out, stride into the holiday season and go off grid for a change. Go Native or go home.
