Native ● Fitzsimmons Treklite

Our journey through Five Fly Footwear Flavors continues. I picked this week to compare different styles of shoes in a “footwear only” special that today is at its second installment.

What better idea for these days of harsh weather conditions than a pair of Native boots?! With most of its collection available through Blakshop, the choice of The Maxiemillion fell on Fitzsimmons Treklite.

When a brand is focused on an eco sustainable production with low emissions, it experiments with plastic materials being 100% vegan (Peta certified) and has an innovative style that captures your attention, it is a brand that we all have to keep an eye on. I did it already, if you consider that I already posted here two different colorways of Apollo Chucka, Rain Jiffy Chelsea boots and another pair of Fitzsimmons.

But this is the Fitzsimmons Treklite, a version that keeps the silhouette of the original style but has a few new and improved features. The most evident is the Ripstop nylon with waterproof backing upper paired with the Defender Repellent Systems with Scotchgard™. It has a much more captivating appeal and technically protects your feet from snow and rain.

We are far from being done if you consider that these boots also feature microfleece lining, brushed fiber collar and tongue and ultra-lite rubber outsole.

Aesthetically speaking Native and its “Keep it lite” philosophy work in unison to induce happiness. “We’re not about just attracting the eye, we’re about making your feet and soul happy” said the founder Damian van zyll de Jong, in an interview.

I couldn’t agree more: these Fitzsimmons In Martina L hands follow the guidelines of the classic hiking boot with a one of a kind style (and I love the contrast of that Dublin grey with Royal blue round laces).
