Native Shoes {Review}

Native Shoes you absolutely stole my heart with the Miller Children’s printed shoe in 80’s Lil Doodle/Fire Red.  As soon as my son put them on I was in love…I mean I already love the kid but put him in sweet little man shoes and I was a puddle!  Look at him–you have to admit he looks super stylin’ in these shoes, right?


NativeShoesFor me as mom of two boys it is pretty special when I find a company that has GREAT stuff for boys and with Native it doesn’t feel at all like the boys lines were a second thought. Their boys shoes RAWK!!!! I feel like every mama of boys should know about them! The Miller shoe comes in solid, two-tone and patterns for boys and girls. The sneaker styling is a little bit hipster in all the right ways. The loafer styled Howard are really rad as well and I could totally see my sons wearing them!

I just love when my sons suddenly find their shoes ‘uncomfortable’ or ‘too hard to put on’. No worries with these shoes,  Bug loves wearing them because they are super comfy and easy to pop on and off.  Its kind of like someone has been spying on my family and realizes the DAILY struggle to get out the door and heaven help me footwear plays a big part of that.  A million-trillion thank yous to you Native for knowing the struggle and creating something wicked that my boys will wear-no complaints.

Native also gives me a warmNativeShoes squishy feeling with all the Do-Goodery  they are spreading around-BPA free, low emission manufacturing process, no animal by-products and they are made of EVA…but what the heck is EVA, right?  Well the answer to that and more can be found on their FAQ page (which is way wittier than most FAQ pages).

EVA is the common name for ethylene-vinyl acetate. These weird words translate into a feeling of cool and cushy freedom for your feet. Think of EVA as the marshmallow that never melts; the spring in your step. The natural characteristics of the material make it great for footwear because it molds to your feet. It’s also incredibly lightweight, shock absorbent, washable, waterproof, and odor-resistant. All Native shoes are also animal by-product free. We’re friends with animals, aren’t you?

To top it off they are founded in Vancover, BC–can I have a WOOHOO on that one? I love to buy from Canadian companies!  $35.00USD is pretty reasonable in my opinion for a cute and functional shoe and I see at the top of their website they have a 10% deal if you sign up for their newsletter, which could be totally worth it if ordering a few pairs!

    Then add the fact that they are easy to put on and take off and you can easily see the difference , time-wise, when children do not need help with this task.-Less stressful as well.
