They are comfortable if worn for a few hours. But anything after three hours will make my feet sore. They don't provide any support. However, they are very light and easy cleanable.

These are pretty basic shoes but the right one seems smaller than the left one. I have never had this problem with other shoes before, so it is not my feet.

I love my Natives. The first time I tried them on, I kept them on. Very comfortable but don't order a size smaller, they are very true to size.

These are great shoes to wear in and around the water. I am a sailing instructor and absolutely love these. They are far better than traditional boat shoes because they do not hold onto that stinky salt water smell!

Love these shoes, bought them for two teenage sons. Same convenience as other shoes of this material, but they look so much classier!

These are cute but terribly narrow. I have wide feet so ordered a full size larger than normal and still could barely get my feet in. These aren't mediums, they're narrows. They have good arch support. I like that the soles are nearly flat (the heel is 1/4 in. higher than the toe). I love the idea of foam shoes but haven't found any that I can actually love yet.

Too small for this size - the sizing on my Corrado shoes was perfect, but this pinched my toes and was uncomfortable. Will try a bigger size.

I have sensitive skin and have worn Crocs for a few years now because they are easy to clean and don't hold bacteria/smell. These are exactly the same, only way nicer looking. The only shoes I ever wear to work or vacation, and I get compliments all the time. Order 2 pair!

My husband absolutely loves these shoes. He says not only are they super comfortable, they are easy to clean and gets several compliments when he wears them. They are versatile and can be worn with most outfts. He has not taken them off since the day ups delivered them. He is purchasing another pair in grey. A++++

Bought a new boat this spring and figured I'd pick up a pair of boat shoes. These Native Howards fit the bill. They're inexpensive, water proof, fit well and look good, what more could you ask for?

these are amazing. I bought my first pair of Native Howards back in 2011 and I've finally just decided to buy these as a replacement. They are the perfect casual summer time shoes. I love that I can wear them in the water and just around town without looking like a total dope. Stylish and comfy. I tell people that these are basically Crocs but not as ugly.

Bought these to wear on a cruise with my dress pants (wish no white on soles) to eat in, etc so I could quickly change back into real cruise wear. I was with a bunch of old folks who live to dress up on the boat. I don't think one of 'em had brought a swim suit. Kind of sad really.

Great water shoes. Very stylish and comfortable. Good for the beach or being by the pool. The only downside is that they don't come in half sizes. Bought these for my husband who wears 9.5. At first got him a 10 which was too big, so we exchanged it for a 9 and it fits him fine, not too tight.

I work in an art studio with concrete floors and since I bought these shoes, my feet have never hurt. Besides feeling good at the end of the day I can clean them in a bucket and they are dry by morning. I also use them for working in a garden and same deal. Superior to the Croc.

Love these shoes. I ordered them too big the first time and when I reordered them a size smaller, they were a little snug. But after wearing them a couple of times, they fit perfectly and are very comfortable! I can put them in the sink and wash them out if they get dirty and they are great!

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.

Agree that the right shoe is smaller than the left. Strange. Liked the shoes otherwise. Hopefully, Native addresses this issue. They seem to have a pretty good product otherwise.

I had high hopes for this shoe, but it failed to deliver. The biggest issue is that the rubber shrank dramatically after having been in my car for a couple days. Although it was summer, this should not be enough to shrink a shoe by approximately 25%. The size had changed so dramatically, I was unable to wear them. For a shoe that is essentially designed for warmer weather, you would think this would have been thought through by the design team.
