PROJECT Show Las Vegas – Native Fall/Winter 2012 – “Colorful Old And New”

By - February 15th, 2012

Fine tuning its recipe of success with value and colorful options, the Vancouver-base footwear brand Native showcased the upcoming Fall/Winter 2012 Collection at PROJECT trade show in Las Vegas with “something new and something old”. The “new” would be the Cromwell, a throwback to the traditional slip-on rain boots and chukka in Native’s colorful renditions. The Native Jimmy will be available in two new forms as well, a mid-cut version closely resembles to classic duck shoes. Native will also include a shearling addition for the upcoming season. Finally, the popular Fitzsimmons undergoes an interesting alteration with “reclaimed or reconstituted leather”. Essentially recycled and unwanted leather materials, processed and then “flocked” onto a pair of Fitzsimmons to gave a feel and look of texture. Both economical and environmentally sound. The Fall/Winter 2012 Collection from Native will be available at retailers starting at the end of summer.



I'm looking forward to the velvety looking Fitzsimmons that are pictured.  Are those the "reconstitute leather" ones?
