Sometimes, our shipping partners update their scans before they’re able to deliver your parcel. We ask that you please wait 24 hours from the “delivered” scan as the parcel could still be on its way to you. In the meantime, we recommend doing a search around your house or apartment as they may have left it at your side-door or concierge. If you’re unable to find it, please contact us and we’ll take it from there!

Your order will arrive with a prepaid Canada Post that can be affixed to that original shipping bag, or another type of packaging if needed, and dropped at your nearest Canada Post location or drop-box.
All returned shoes must be in unworn condition in their original shoe box with their tags attached. To keep your shoes in tip-top condition when trying them on, we recommend doing so on indoors on a soft surface!

We are always happy to extend a warranty against any manufacturer defect in materials or workmanship for up to a year from the day your shoes are received.

Please note that Native Shoes reserves the right to decline any warranty for any reason.
Please note that issues related to fit or sizing are not covered under our warranty. To make sure your shoes are right for you we recommend trying your shoes on indoors on a soft surface before removing any tags or disposing of any packaging.
If your shoes were purchased through our online shop or one of our Native Shoes locations, please fill out our Warranty Form here. We’ll be in touch as soon as possible!
If your shoes were purchased through another retailer, please reach out to them directly as they should be able to support you with a warranty exchange or a refund. If they were unable to support, please fill out our Warranty Form here.

In an effort to make only what we need, the majority of our shoes are only carried in full sizes. However, we do have limited styles available in half sizes such as the Mercury 2.0 Liteknit, Apollo 2.0, and AP Mercury Liteknit Child.
Unfortunately not! We only offer pairs for purchase.
We’re so happy you’re excited enough to ask! However, we do not currently offer pre-orders or the option to reserve stock in advance.

Our shoes are not certified non-slip. Please adventure safely!
EVA is the shorthand for ethylene-vinyl acetate. This material naturally molds to your feet, giving each step a cool and cushy feeling. Our EVA shoes are lightweight, shock absorbent and, hand-washable using lukewarm water and gentle soap. Added bonus – they're naturally odor-resistant thanks to their closed-cell surface that keeps smelly bacteria from hanging on.
We’re so proud to say our shoes are REACH, CPSIA, and Prop 65 compliant. They are also BPA and phthalate free, and don’t contain hazardous materials such as formaldehyde or formamide.
EVA shoes can be hand-washed using lukewarm water, gentle soap and a washcloth or soft brush. Using a towel, pat excess water off and leave them to dry completely in a cool and shaded area.
Our shoes are formed using heat and so can be deformed by it as well! For these reasons, never put your EVA shoes in the washing machine, dryer, or dishwasher. Since they are heat sensitive, we also recommend keeping them out of direct sunlight when off the foot and never leaving them in the car on a hot day.
Follow these steps for keep your soft-top, non-EVA shoes looking as good as new!
1. When shoe is completely dry, remove surface dirt with a soft-bristled brush.
2. Remove the insole and set aside.
3. Quickly run lukewarm water over the outer surface of the shoe.
4. Using a cloth or soft-bristled brush with gentle soap, rub dirt off in light circular motions. Don’t scrub too hard as this can damage your shoes!
5. Rinse your shoes under lukewarm water and repeat until they are clean, and the soap is completely rinsed out.
6. Pat off excess water with a towel and set aside to air dry away from direct sunlight and heat.
Native Shoes was named out of love for our community and the place we call home. We are not an Indigenous-led company, and we acknowledge that the brand was founded and is currently headquartered on the unceded territory of the Musqueam, Squamish and Tsleil-Waututh First Nations. We are aware that the positive intent with which our brand was named over a decade ago may not always reflect the impact of our brand identity today. We are currently reflecting on who we are as a brand, and how our name and brand identity can support our purpose and mission.
We are currently working with factories in China and Vietnam to produce all the shoes in our collection. We pride ourselves in our factory conditions and have stringent ethical practices in place, including the prohibition of forced labor, regulation of wages, and monitoring of working hours. We have great relationships with our teams on the ground and make several trips a year to develop new products and ensure proper conditions are being maintained.
Animal Free has been an integral part of our DNA since day one. Not a single hair nor hide on any animal, anywhere, has been used in the creation of our product. We are proud of that and have been awarded the PETA Approved Vegan certification. Animal Free means respecting our animal and human friends equally.
Yes! We are currently accepting worn out Native Shoes for recycling as part of The Native Shoes Remix™ Project. You can read all about that and our recycling options process here.
All our shoes are unisex and you will see that they are offered in both men’s and women’s sizing. The “M” indicates a men’s size while the “W” indicates a women’s size. For example, 6M8W would mean the shoe is a men’s 6, which is equivalent to a women’s 8!
We have split our children’s shoes into two categories, Child and Junior, and use C and J for shorthand! For example, “C7” means Child Size 7 and “J4” means Junior Size 4, which equates to a men’s size 4 as well.
The sizing chart for our baby shoes can be found by scrolling to the bottom of any baby shoe product page.
