This slip-on shoe is offered in US men’s sizes from 3 to 13. For the ladies, it can be purchased in sizes 5 to 12. Currently, the Native Cruz does not have any half-sizes available. Although made to fit true to size, it may run smaller than the regular size as per some wearers. Be aware of the return policy if ordering online as there is a possibility that the ordered size doesn’t fit correctly.
Its slip-on entry and heel tab allow the shoe to be worn more easily while its mesh upper delivers a soft and breathable fit.
Feel the beachfront breeze with style and ease with one of Native’s low-top sneakers, the Cruz model.
Take advantage of the sneaker’s modest construction and monochromatic color schemes as it looks like a natural match to a myriad of summer clothing combinations.
The Native Cruz has an EVA outsole which contributes to the sneaker’s light build and offers a degree of water resistance.
Native Shoes founder Damien Van Zyll de Jong envisioned to start a footwear company in 2007. During that time, he didn’t have a real design concept and had no experience in the sneaker business. Van Zyll de Jong then surrounded himself with friends who have ties in the industry. After a year of experience in China about the production process, he finally launched his first collection in 2009.
For most of Native’s offerings, it has a consistent theme of simplistic and minimal design. By featuring the company’s trademark of simplicity, the Native Cruz embodies the company’s formula – innovation, originality, and lite-ness.
- It is available in various colorways including Bone White, Jiffy Black, and Victoria Blue.
