Native Shoes Debuts Water-Resistant Hydro Collection

As we settle into the new year, our Sourcing Summit Companion Report looks ahead at ways to optimize processes and performance.

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.
