Marc Jacobs Goes Native
Drawing inspiration from your favourite classic casual shoes, Native Shoes has taken a new twist by creating them in the lightest, most comfortable material available. The Vancouver-based footwear company combines the best of technology and design. Using a unique, low-emission manufacturing process Native Shoes are made from foam-injection molded-EVA, a super lightweight, durable and comfortable material. They are animal bi-product free, waterproof and odor-resistant, making a shoe you can slip on for a walk or throw them in your backpack for a trip to the beach.
In their first collaboration, Native has teamed up with Marc Jacobs to create a limited edition boot just in time for the winter weather. The limited edition “Jimmy Boot” is exceptionally light and completely waterproof down to the waxed laces; it features a laminated Japanese denim upper on a molded EVA outsole with a stabilizing insole. The Jimmy is the ultimate all-weather boot.
Available in unisex sizes 6-12 and priced under $100, the Jimmy will be available starting September 8, 2011 exclusively at Marc Jacobs boutiques worldwide and online at marcjacobs.com.
