History of the Native Jefferson

Relatively new in the game, Native was only founded in 2009 by Canadian Damien van zyll de Jong. Despite having no experience and no concept in mind in the footwear industry at first, the intent was instilled in Damien's mind. Only knowing that canvas and vulcanized construction were elements that he did not want to be present on his shoes, he journeyed through China to understand more about the manufacturing process and launch his shoe brand.

User-friendly EVA injection moldings became the main attraction of his footwear. Although there are some material disadvantages, it poses unique advantages like its antimicrobial feature because of its closed cell-foam quality.
