Native Jefferson 2.0 Liteknit History

From how the brand started, it seems that Native founder Damien van zyll de Jong began to it all at a spur of the moment. Chatting with his friends about his intention of starting a shoe company while on his way home from a snowboarding trip, it just magically came into life.

With no experience in the footwear industry, Damien flew to China to learn more about the manufacturing process. Moreover, he surrounded himself with people who are experts in the industry. Two years after, he launched Native, a unique footwear line as it sports an EVA upper instead of the usual canvas or leather. To date, the Native Jefferson shoes are Native's most popular sneakers around.
