Good shoes fit well I use for everything including hiking. I did not see this written anywhere, but you should avoid wearing socks with these shoes as you will slip around in them. The traction is best barefooted in these shoes.

Love the green glass, and these are wonderfully comfortable. However, the sizing is ridiculously small. I measure as a 9.5, and usually wear 9.5-10. From other Native reviews, I got both a 9 and 10. My toes are to the end of the 10. And for some reason, Native doesn't make women's colors in anything larger than a 10. A plus - my super feet insoles fit in the shoes, and don't feel very different from the insoles that come in them. I am going to try the 11 in gray, but am very disappointed in the color selection.

I love the look as they resemble Converse and go with anything. I wanted a shoe I could slip on and where to the beach or pool and not worry about sand or getting wet. These are great.

Loved the look and feel of these but they were a bit too small. Going to have to order a size up. Not sure they will be very durable, but I like them anyways

Super cute, very comfortable. Took them out of the box and wore them every day for a week. Love these and want more colors.

Natives are awesome. These fit and feel great. Couldn't be happier. May get a second pair to wear on the boat. Perfect for summer.

My son grew out of the little kid size 3 so I ordered smallest adult size and they were too big for him but fit me. My son wants another pair this summer but I'm having trouble finding the right size for him. Little kid 3 is too small, adult women's size 5 too big. Also, I've been pining for the pink Jefferson's to come in adult size for a couple years now!

Way too narrow for quick on and off, which is what my ten-year-old wanted in a shoe for camp. Once on, he said they were comfortable but he didn't like the struggle to get them on.

So I guess the question now is when will Native start doing half sizes? It seems like every review mentions it and I have to agree, I wish I was wearing 6.5's instead of 6's (normally a women's 7). I'm hoping mine will ease out a little with wear, I tend to like my shoes on the roomier side but I didn't want to risk going too large and having my heel slip out. Super comfy and lightweight, sweet style.

Great shoe design! However, they are running about 1 size smaller than normal & the blue Native tag on the heel of the shoe is itchy & stiff.

I may have found the perfect shoe for the gym. This shoe really grips the foot and stays cool. Also works as a shower shoe.

Love the style of these shoes. I first saw them on Native's website and decided to order for an upcoming trip. When determining my size I referred to Native's size chart. I normally wear a size 8.5 but decided to give the 8 in women's a go because I've bought these shoes for my son in the past and they run large for children (the shoes are unisex and come in 6M/8W). Way too small couldn't even get my foot in the shoe. So I am returning them to Native. Meanwhile, I found them on Zappos and decided to order them here since Zappos has such speed delivery and free shipping. Anyhoo, this time I ordered a size 7M/9M. Still don't fit! So they are going back to Zappos. Still deciding whether to reorder. Regardless, I wish they had some warning about the sizing on either Native's website or here.

These are comfortable, but need an insert as the bottom is a bit hard. Time will tell if it's good in summer as it's only 18 degrees here now. Fit is as expected...lots of room in the toe area. I have a high instep and had no problem slipping them on.

Really pleasantly surprised by the Fitzsimmons! They're really cool looking, fit well, and are really warm--perfect so far for the NYC polar vortex. I also really like the stretchy sock lining in the boot. Only complaint is that they seem to be taking a long time to break in/have very little arch support; standing or walking in them for longer than half an hour caused me intense arch pain. Hopefully this lets up as I wear them more.

I purchased these shoes for my trip to Playa Del Carmen, Mexico. I knew I needed a shoe for the beach, walking, and dancing and for the most part, they rocked! They're super cute on, almost a perfect fit just a little snug around my right pinky toe. Now my only gripe, which was pretty major for me is the sand gets caught in the shoe...wet sand = 10lbs of extra weight that I caught myself lugging around. I finally emptied out the sand and decided that it was best to wear them off the beach. These were my go to shoes, wore the heck out of them for 7 days.

These are great shoes. I wear them with long pants and people think I'm wearing regular 'Chucks'. They have better support and more cushion, though. I wear them in town but especially on the water. They are cool and extremely comfortable. I'm ordering a pair of the boat shoes next. highly recommend these great shoes! I would order a size smaller than you usually wear. I normally wear a 10 and it was too big even with socks. Returned it and got a 9 about a day later. Great service.

I own 4 pair of Native shoes. Which is to say, I love them. They are so light, comfortable and perfect to do almost anything in. Their one limitation, I think, is what many people buy them for: the beach. They are filled with holes, so if you are going near sand, loose dirt or debris, this is not the shoe. I like them best as an every day city shoe. They're easily washable, and they do stretch to fit your foot (the Jefferson is, at first, fairly narrow). I walk miles a day in Native shoes (in the city) and find that they do hold up well. They're foam, but seem durable. Also, although this company (which is determined to market these as hipster shoes) would be horrified: these shoes 100% solved my plantar fasciitis pain. Of course, people say Crocs do that, too, but I'd suffer for the rest of my life than wear Crocs. This is an inexpensive, and far more aesthetically pleasing, alternative.

Very comfortable, waterproof, easy on/off and they don't look like Crocs! I love these shoes. This is my second pair. I wore out the originals over about 2 years.

I love native shoes. Unfortunately they stopped producing the Hugo so I went with the Howard - I traveled for 2 months with them all over Europe from Iceland to Istanbul - never having to take them off crossing glaciers in Iceland, crossing rivers in Sicily, scaling the ancient city of Ephesus - they are champion shoes. Unfortunately they were a little tight! They are the same size as the Howard, but I thought after a bit of time they would stretch but they didn't. Still buying a new pair of Jeffersons this time as Natives are perfect for cycling. Best cheap shoe on the market!

First, I am HUGE fan of Native. And I love the look of this particular shoe. However, it has some problems, which I imagine that many people will find troublesome. 1. These are narrow. Like, seriously narrow. I have very narrow feet and these were tight. 2. The opening for one's foot is too big, and I just walk right out of these shoes. Also, the pair I received seemed to be two different sizes, as each shoe fit completely different. 3. This model does not have the same amount of cushion as most of the others; the sole is thinner, and thus, I find it to be WAY LESS comfortable than a model like the Miller. Obviously, these work for many people, but I also suspect many will encounter the same problems that I did. I LOVE the look, especially the print. But unfortunately, these don't cut the proverbial mustard.

It's mind-boggling how subject the concept of "comfortable shoe" is. To me, comfort means 1. extremely lightweight (I cannot stand heavy shoes) and 2. a little shock absorption. That's surprisingly hard to find -- and it's nearly impossible if one ventures outside of running shoes (which are, to me, mostly shockingly ugly). Plus, I want fun. Stylish. Awesome. Too much to ask? I think the Native Miller is fantastic, and meets all of the above criteria and then some. They weigh, for all intents and purposes, nothing. They are bouncy but not too bouncy. You can wash them. THEY ARE STYLISH. The only cons these shoes have is that the entire shoe line is narrow. The Millers are the widest, but they are not wide by any stretch of imagination. I have narrow feet and these are still snug (which is fine with me, but I am just offering a warning). To me, they fit fairly true to size. Warning, though: they will melt in the sun. I learned that the hard way with another pair. I left them on my deck in direct sunlight for a couple of hours, and that was the end. The company warns you about this, but it's tiny fine print. Overall, fantastic shoes that are a pleasure to wear.
