It's the leader of lite-ness and our original EVA all-star, the uncompromisable Jefferson. Like any reigning ruler of the ring, the Jefferson encompasses all of the fine features that you'd expect from a Native shoe. It's shock absorbent, odor resistant, and hand-washable! Capabilities clouds could only dream of.
WHERE DOES THE NAME NATIVE SHOES COME FROM?
Derivative of the latin word nativus, meaning the place or environment in which a person was born, Native Shoes was conceived from the idea that we are all native to somewhere. In designing both adults and kids styles for a wide range of climates, Native Shoes makes classic footwear for all people in all places.
Native Shoes is not an Indigenous-led company, and we acknowledge that the brand was founded and is currently headquartered on the unceded territory of the Musqueam, Squamish and Tsleil-Waututh First Nations.
WHERE ARE NATIVE SHOES MADE?
We are currently working with factories in China and Vietnam to produce all of the shoes in our collection. We pride ourselves in our factory conditions and have stringent ethical practices in place; including the prohibition of forced labor, regulation of wages, and monitoring of working hours. We have great relationships with our teams on the ground, and make several trips a year to develop new products and ensure proper conditions are being maintained.
WHAT IS BEAST FREE?
Beast Free has been an integral part of our DNA since day one. Not a single hair nor hide on any animal, anywhere, has been used in the creation of our product. We are proud of that, and have been awarded the PETA Approved Vegan certification. Beast Free means respecting our animal and human friends equally.
