If I could live in one style of shoe for the rest of my life, sneakers would most definitely be at the top of my list. But not just any old sneaker… they must be versatile, trendy and of course last me a while. I’m prone to dragging my heels when I walk, and I’ve got the evidence to prove it. With that said, the heel is always the first thing to go, which then results in having to throw out the actual shoe. And let me tell you, it’s not easy.

Investing in a quality sneaker is key not only for long- lasting shoes, but for long-lasting feet as well. Considering we’re spending our entire lives on our feet, comfort and quality are crucial aspects in prolonging their life span.

I got my first pair of Native Shoes, the Apollo Mocs, over a year and a half ago, and I’m happy to say they’re still intact. They’ve become my go-to shoe for absolutely everything, from class to working out to travel. However, these Mercury Liteknits are slowly taking over. The lightweight material makes you feel like you’re walking on clouds all day long, and the sleek design and powder blue shade compliments just about anything you wear.

The Mercury Liteknits are the newest edition to Native Shoes’ ever-growing collection. They’ve got more stretch with a new intertwined 3D elasticized knit, and are even lighter in weight than their previous styles. The inspiration behind these gems? Clouds.
