Native Shoes Debuts Water-Resistant Hydro Collection

It’s boot season again and Native Shoes is translating its minimal aesthetic into a new collection of water-resistant boots.

Native’s hydro collection features three new styles, all made element-friendly by Scotchgard’s Defender Repellent System, which renders the boots water-resistant.

The AP Apex is a fresh take on Native’s signature Apollo series, featuring a saw-tooth rubber outsole built upon the classic Apollo platform, allowing for easy treading on wet surfaces. Micro-perforations allow for breathability while a padded collar and recycled nubuck upper add extra comfort to the style, available in four colors.

For those who want a bit of sleekness while still staying dry, the AP Rover, available in three colors, offers stability with a transparent no-sew mudguard and rubber outsole, as well as a 3M reflective strip on the heel ribbon for hi-visibility.


The AP Chukka Hydro, available in four colors, features a 3-ply assembly upper treated by with Scotchgard’s Defender Repellent System, while the anti-gravity rubber provides tread resistance.

All three silhouettes are available now from Native Shoes, retailing for between $100-$125.
