Native Shoes offers two new styles for spring

native shoes offers two new styles for spring footwear howardCanadian brand Native Shoes is expanding its footwear line with two new styles coming out this spring. The company makes sporty, lightweight EVA-material shoes in the same vein as fashion faux-pas Crocs, but in classic casual styles that won’t land you on the worst-dressed list. The line already includes a classic tennis shoe (The Miller), a mocassin (The Corrado), and a Chuck Taylor-inspired style (The Jefferson) in both classic colors and bright alternatives.

native shoes offers two new styles for spring footwear jericho

Coming into the collection for spring is The Jericho (below) and The Howard (above). The Jericho is a classic, thin-soled tennis shoe style that is only available for women this spring, but will reach the men’s department in the fall. The Howard is a dressier take on the EVA footwear, inspired by a two-eyelet boat shoe. Native Shoes was kind enough to send us some samples to try out and we are pleased to report that the new styles are both remarkably comfortable and surprisingly versatile.

The shoes are lightweight, odor-resistant, and antimicrobial. Perforations in the shoes add to the signature style and keep your feet cool and dry. The Jericho is the brand’s take on the classic Keds style and functions as a comfortable, dressed up flip-flop. Anything you would wear flip-flops with would certainly look better with a pair of brightly-colored Jerichos on your feet. The Howard provides better cushion and more arch support than some of the other styles, and seems particularly versatile in the more toned-down neutral colors. The company has also released a fun video from their spring collection photoshoot. Check it out below if you’d like to see the quirky shoes in action.
