      The deets:

      Save our rivers and lakes with your feet, as Vancouver-based Native repurposes algae into these earth-friendly kicks, available in new colours, including this springy pastel celtuse green. The slip-on Jefferson style has Native's signature perforations and flexible soles. Totally West Coast ($65 Canadian).


      During the manufacturing process, toxic algae is swept from lakes and other freshwater ecosystems and transformed into a high-performance material. Making each pair ends up cleaning up to 8 litres of water and 50 cubed metres of air.
