History of the Native Nova Hydroknit

The Vancouver-based company named Native Shoes was founded back in 2009 by Scott Hawthorn and Damien van zyll de Jong. Its main goal was to release casual shoes with a unique look and feel with great functionality that is hardly seen in other brands.

It did get to bring out silhouettes that are lightweight, durable, and comfortable to use on different occasions and conditions.

Although it hasn't been long since it first started, Native has grown exponentially with branches released in about 30 countries. From releasing EVA silhouettes, the brand took various innovative approaches to the materials used in making a shoe.
