I mad scientist were to take a yarn of synthetic fibers, some rubber and some leftover EVA material, run electricity through it, get an expert seamstress to turn it into a pet project, then send it to college at an upscale hipsterdesign school in New York, it would probably look something like The Native Shoes Women's AP Mercury Liteknit Shoe. The ultralightweight shoe is made from essentially one piece of tight-knit and stretchy knit material that is highly breathable and is in some ways more akin to a sock than an actual shoe. A removable footbed provides aeration so your feet can breathe whether sitting at your desk, teaching a class, or rushing around the hospital ward. The EVA midsole and outsole is extremely flexible, so it'll compliment the arch and stride of your foot as you go about your day.

- Q & A
Bomb, but the Heel Rubs Quite Painfully
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
These shoes are bomb. The knit conforms to your foot and feels like you're wearing nothing at all. The sole is textured, similar to Nike Roche's if you've ever worn those. The look is sick, and they're definitely my go to shoes now. I normally wear a size 6.5 in women's and I actually had to size down 1/2 size to a size 6.0. The shoe is quite roomy, and I wanted more of a fitted feel. I'd recommend a 1/2 size down. Also, the back portion tends to rub on the back of my heel quite painfully if I don't have a sock or pant in between. If I wear high socks, or yoga pants that come down further, I don't have an issue, but it can rub really bad if there isn't any fabric there.
- Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
I ordered my usual size 7 and received a Men's 7 / Women's 9 so they were huge. Make sure to check the size chart as you'll need to compare your size with the Men's and order your equivalent Men's size.
The material was nice, soft, and breathable and the shoes were very lightweight, they just didn't fit properly.
New favorite slip on sneakers
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
These are my go to sneakers for running errands, light walking, etc. I pretty much live in them on the weekends. They are super lightweight and the footbed has little raised beads that massage your feet as you walk. They slip on and off super easily because of the knit upper. They are so soft and light you don't feel like you are wearing sneakers at all.
