Walk Like an Amphibian

Anyone who grew up in the nineties will remember the rubber and neoprene water shoe of yore. A favorite of outdoor-loving parents everywhere, they were useful for any number of coastal summertime activities—hiking, fishing, sailing, you name it. Now, here to add a healthy dose of style to an otherwise bleakly functional footwear genre is Native Shoes. Drawing inspiration from classic sneaker silhouettes, the Vancouver-based company offers three styles in a range of candy colors. The shoes are produced in foam-injected, low-emission EVA material, which is washable, anti-microbial and super-lightweight. What it means for you? No longer having to sacrifice your aesthetic-loving dignity for a day at the beach.
