Natives Shoes, founded in Vancouver, Canada in 2009, revolves its designs around the idea of supreme “lite-ness.” A design technique that dates back to medieval times when it was used in knights’ armour, perforated holes throughout the shoe create their light quality.

The company is also praised for its “Beast-Free” materials: no aspect of the shoe contains any animal products. And at a price seven times less than your average Yeezys, who wouldn’t love this cool and environmentally-friendly product? Check out some of our favorite styles below.
