Inspired by classic, casual silhouettes, but made with the lightest & most comfortable material available.
Native Shoes is footwear for anybody, anywhere, anytime.
Native Shoes have come to India in the last couple of months & I am so glad to have them in my life. They’re washable, waterproof & odor resistant (not to mention cruelty free).
They’re sort of like the crocs I’ve had for years, except much cuter & comfier.
I’ve been using the Native Verona in limited edition Botanical print. The full range is available on flipkart & guess what, there’s mens shoes too!
Internationally they are marketed for the summers & the beach but here in Mumbai they are absolutely perfect for the heavy monsoons. They’re easy enough to put on the holes in the front and back make sure water doesn’t collect inside the shoe. It stays very securely on the my feet yet I can slip them off in a few seconds when I want to.
They might not be the cheapest pair of shoes but after using them heavily for the last few weeks I can say that I am happy to shell out a little cash on shoes that make my life easier. And I know that these will last me at least 3-4 monsoons (although I will be very tempted to wear them any time of the year).
Natives Shoes India can also be found on facebook.
These photos were taken on my recent trip to Goa, you can see a video of my trip (& my natives in action!) here.
