Put Your Best Holiday Foot Forward With Native Shoes (Win!)

November 3, 2022

Forget socks; when it comes to holiday giving, footwear is far more festive! It can also be fun and friendly to Mother Earth, especially when those “sole-ful” gifts come from Native Shoes. Below, our top gift picks for grownups and kids; as with all of Native Shoes’ styles, the following silhouettes are fully recyclable through the Native Shoes Remix™ Project. —Vita Daily

Gifts for Adults

Johnny Treklite Bloom ($140): Ready to conquer a variety of terrains, the Johnny Treklite Bloom is a cold weather staple. Its water-resistant, lace-up upper is made with corn-derived Susterra while the interior is lined with brushed microfleece, ensuring that you’ll stay warm and dry. Notably, this style features an innovative Rise by Bloom sole made with repurposed algae.

Fitzsimmons Citylite Bloom ($135): Similar to the Johnny Treklite Bloom, this classic hiking-style boot features an algae-based Rise by Bloom sole. Available in a variety of colourways, the Fitzsimmons Citylite Bloom offers a grippy sole for traction and microfleece lining to keep you cozy whether you’re simply taking the dog out for a walk or heading on your next adventure.

Gifts for Kids

Jefferson Disney Print Child ($55-65): Drawing inspiration from Disney’s iconic illustrations, this nostalgic and playful take on Native Shoes’ best-selling silhouette is the ultimate shoe for Tiny Imagineers.

Kensington Treklite Glitter Child ($85-90): Embrace holiday festivities while conquering any adventure with a glittery, water-repellent slip-on boot! Its statement finish will help you stand out on the trails, and the rubber outsole offers strong traction—perfect for rain, shine, snow, and everything in between.

    My mom and dad gave me mortgage money to cover off my mortgage while I managed through a full nervous breakdown. As the sole homeowner single person it was scary to have to deal with treatment for suicidal depression if I couldn’t afford to live in my little condo and feed my cats. My parents are not well off but they knew this would go miles to my recovery. And 2 yrs later I was back at work and bought a new house etc. The greatest gift I guess was my parents.
