I’ve been seeing some people already wearing these colorful shoes in the malls and its eye candy for us because the design is unique, the colors are too colorful and you’ll mistake the design that it could be that animal shoe brand? or the island brand thing? but Native shoes are easy to spot and identify with the style of having holes on it and you’ll think if the shoe is rubberized or plastic.
I regret of not attending the launch event of Native because of my busy schedule and I just came back from a long trip and I decided to stay home and rest, but the photos says it all and it shows that pinoys are excited to own one set of Native shoes, I even saw some of my friends wear this and with the price range are just right, the market can embrace it so easily, all it need is an awesome marketing and promotion.
I thought its a sneaker brand, but then when I saw the photos similar from above, I started to giggle and want to own one set now, I love to bring and wear a Native shoes in my trip to the beach and this can be a good foot wear to trek the shores of the beach and also walk under water, sometimes its hard to wear sandals when you walk in open sea, corals and other sea animals are painful to step on when you are barefooted.
Here’s another stylish way of wearing your Native shoes, but you can see that there are designs that are truly designed for fashion and street wear, I like the style of this Native shoe, even if it sports a neo color, it will still reflect that you are ready for summer or maybe you are just colorful in life.
Here’s another design – The Verona.
But for me, I like this Hugo design, perfect for the beach and street wear.

Native Shoes and celebs at the carnival party
Already a favorite in the Philippines, Native shoes (which hails from Vancouver, Canada) continues to develop the brand to cater to more style preferences. This makes the unveiling of the brand’s Spring/Summer 2012 collection all the more exciting as guests got to see first-hand Native shoes five new styles namely: The Paolo (a long-lasting and ultra comfortable sandal – similar to flip flops but way better), The Blanca (t-front style sandals that are both cool for the beach and casual days in the city), The Hugo (a new take on slip on sneakers, but is still effortlessly cool), The Verona (a Latin-inspired Espadrille-like slip on that’s been taken a million notches up), and the Men’s Jericho (you asked, Native responded, with a cool new version of its bestselling style, this time it’s especially for the guys).
Another important selling point of Native Shoes is its timeless style which is well
complemented by the variety of colors that the brand’s core styles are available in. Jefferson, Corrado, Jericho, Miller, Fitzsimmons, and the Howard were each created based on popular shoe styles for more classic silhouettes that will work well for both day and night.
This brand also has boots! The Native Fitzsimmons is a funky work boot that comes in an assortment of fun colors. It recently won the Red Dot design award, one of the most renowned international product competitions. While the Jimmy Boot, which has recently launched an exclusive collaboration with famed international designer, Marc Jacobs is now available in local shores and is something that every practical fashionista should look out for. While the Jimmy Boot x Marc Jacobs style is limited only to select branches of Marc Jacobs abroad, the local launch of the Jimmy Boot is still something that fashion fans should watch out for.
