I have to say I was one of those people who fought the good fight against Crocs. I turned up my nose at moms who would have the audacity to dress their little ones in the offending shoe (don’t even get me started on the adults who wore them). But before you send me your barrels of hate mail in defense of them, let me tell you that I like most people eventually turned. The comfort, the ease, the practicality of Cros, it all finally did me in and I bought a pair for my son. Sure, it was only six months ago and the Crocs were the newest, most stylish model that actually looked sorta cool, but I still felt a tiny twinge of complacency when I looked at them.
Fortunately, there’s an answer to my woes in the form of the hottest, newest and most exciting shoe launch of 2010, Native shoes.

Designed to thrill, but made to last and function much like a Croc, it’s the answer to every mom’s stylish prayer. Having seen these perforated works of wonder last year at a trade show, I was waiting anxiously for the kids version to arrive in stores. And they’re here, they are finally here! Perfect when worn with or without socks, on the beach or in the classroom, it’s the ideal shoe to transition into fall and show off your early adapter status on the first day of school.
Get ‘em before they’re hot! While you’re at it, pick yourself up a pair in one of the many adult sizes for mini-me coolness.
