Meet These Bright and Bold Pairs of Slip-ons We’re Scooping Up This Season
If there’s one positive thing that came out of the three-year-long pandemic lockdowns, it’s probably our desire for comfort. Anything comfy and cozy? Count us in. In fact, it has been the name of the game for the past few years even in style and fashion. It’s no surprise then why slip-ons and slides have skyrocketed in popularity.
No longer relegated to just shower shoes or “pambahay,” these super soft pairs have become mainstays in our wardrobe—for lounging or otherwise—and with good reason. They’re easy to slip on and take off; upkeep and cleanup are a breeze; they offer supportive footbeds; and they come in tons of stylish, funky options.
One such slip-on is Native’s Jefferson EVA, which come in a variety of cute prints, bold graphics, and vivid colors. It’s Native’s bestselling shoe for adults and kids alike. Putting on a pair, whether you’re coming home from a long day at work or spending hectic days outside, feels like heaven—and definitely soothing for your footsies.
Light to the soles, high impact to the environment
Lightness is Native’s mantra—and it’s pretty evident in the Jefferson EVA. Other than the shoe being extremely lightweight, it also has one of the smallest carbon footprints and crafted with sustainability in mind.
Their Jefferson Sugarlite™ iterations, for example, are made with a proprietary material that’s a blend of traditional EVA (ethylene-vinyl acetate, a type of rubber-like and elastic plastic) and a sugarcane-derived resin. The result is a decrease in greenhouse gas emissions throughout the shoe’s production process.
The classic Jefferson EVA shoes, on the other hand, while not made with Sugarlite™ still sport all the features you’d expect from the brand. Each pair’s hand-washable, odor-resistant, shock-absorbent, and comes in an infinite assortment of colors and treatments that you’ll most definitely go gaga over. We’re even having a tough time picking favorites.
Strut in style
Native has got the Jefferson EVA for any age, with slip-ons for adults starting from P3,490 and for little misses and misters going for P2,490.
There are solid hues, block colors, bright graphics, and funky prints to choose from. And there’s even a version made with repurposed algae called Bloom©, which is actually Jefferson’s more earth-friendly pair with a perforated upper and a rubber rand and toecap made with recycled materials. The Bloom© comes in four neutral colorways of chameleon pink, mist grey, bone white, and onyx.
If you want a punch of print or color, we’re recommending scooping up any of the Jefferson classic or Sugarlite™, with the former coming in 16 colors and the latter coming in eight designs. There’s also Jefferson Block, which mixes two colors in one pair—and come in four colorways.
Tbh, there are so many styles to cop from the collection—and we’re totally here for it. The best part? You can don a pair everywhere and express yourself while at it—for post-workout recovery, for toting to the beach, for short hikes, for running errands, for casual days at the office, or even for when you’re just chilling at home. Love!
Pro-tip: You can even get similar pairs for twinning with your kiddos!
