Size and fit

The low-top Native Apollo 2.0 is available for both men and women, in US sizing. Males can purchase a pair from 4 to 13 while females could have theirs from 6 to 12. Many warned that it runs small. Adding up to a full size has been recommended by some. Being familiar with the return policy is advisable.

Showcasing a one-piece microfiber upper in a slip-on profile, the Apollo 2.0 offers exceptional breathability. Called as the "slip-on moonwalker," the sneaker boasts supreme lightweight quality and flexibility.

Native Apollo 2.0 Style

Retaining most design elements of the first Apollo sneaker, this iteration is just as versatile with multiple color options that many will appreciate. Its sporty profile pairs well with leggings, denim jeans, and shorts. The possibilities are up to the wearer's as it is a natural match with almost any casual attire. As wearable as any shoe can be, the Native Apollo 2.0 is equipped adequately for today's active lifestyle.

Notable Features

Free from animal products, the Tirrenina microfiber is designed to appear and feel like leather on a "cellular" level. The impressive grip and flexibility of the Native Apollo 2.0 are due to the Dynalite outsole. Cushioning and lasting comfort is provided by the Elastilite EVA footbed. 

Native Apollo 2.0 History

Damian Van Zyll De Jong founded the shoe company Native at Vancouver, Canada in 2009. His goal was to manufacture lightweight and innovative shoes that have a minimal design. He also has a contrarian tendency as he wanted to avoid the modern trends of canvas shoes that have vulcanized soles. Due to its stylish sneakers with competitive prices, it didn't take long for Native to be relevant, as it has shops in more than 30 countries around the world.

Among its well-received shoes is the Native Apollo Moc. Because of its success, a subsequent model is released in 2018, called the Native Apollo 2.0. This shoe is another example of the brand's efforts in preserving the environment as the production of its upper uses 70% less water and at least 35% less carbon dioxide emissions.
