I've seen NATIVE all-over Instagram, most especially on friends who love to go to music festivals and those crazy out-of-town outdoor parties. It looks cool and comfortable (the shoes), and of course, matibay.
No wonder the brand just came up with TRAVEL and world culture themed collection for Fall / Winter 2015. Went to Glorietta earlier to check out these new styles, and also to participate in their current promo! (Who wants a free pair of NATIVE shoes?)
DO IT YOUR-SELFIES
If you're in Glorietta 4, here's something worth visiting! Native's Do It Your-Selfies will run from October 2-4, where you simply take your selfie in any spot you like in the Native Geographica gallery, post it on Instagram with the hashtags #NativeGeographica and #DoItYourSelfies, and then pick-up your printed photo at the Res Toe Run store.
Plus, you also get a chance to win a pair of Native shoes! Go post your selfies!
Meanwhile, here are the designs from this collection.
The brand takes inspiration from the Morocco’s classic Safi Mosaic art practice with muted hues accentuated with Moroccan tile work.
The Apollo Series gets an update in the ancient Japanese embroidery process of Sashiko. Super pretty!

“We are excited to take the Apollo Series to new atmospheric heights with the intricate details in design and functionality – key characteristics in the big equation of creating future classics,” said Dominique Morisset, Global Marketing Director of Native Shoes.

Cute Native shoes for the kids:
Native takes cues from the Otomi culture of Mexico by incorporating unique and eye-catching prints into the popular kids’ styles – the Jefferson, Jimmy Boot, Miller, Verona, and Venice.
I also went inside Native's store in Glorietta 4 to check out the other designs.
Hi Ean and Yuki!
