Best Native Dupes for Kids

This post is a bit of a diversion from my usual personal style blog post, but I love sharing all things style–that includes my boys’ clothing (remember their back to school outfits? RIP Gymboree).  I put an ask out on instagram stories today asking if any of you knew of any Native dupes that were less than $20. 

I love Native shoes for my boys and am happy to buy them again, but man, my kids are TOUGH on their shoes.  Since the style has been out for awhile, I know there’s a ton of dupes out there, but I don’t want the boys getting blisters from the shoes.  They lived in their Natives the last two summers and usually Teddy wears Harry’s hand-me-downs–some of the Natives have held up and some haven’t.  I knew you moms out there would deliver; I received so many great suggestions AND  comments asking me to share the results of Native dupes so here we go!  A quick compilation of the best Native-like shoes for kids.  (It’s worth noting that a handful of you said there was nothing as good as Native–however, I’m willing to be the guinea pig and try out the new styles for you!)

  1. Old Navy ($17 – but always on sale)
  2. Amazon ($15)
  3. Amazon ($23 + 10% off)
  4. Nordstrom Rack ($13)
  5. Cat & Jack via Target ($10)

A few of you mentioned Walmart, but I couldn’t find them online.  People also love the TOMs version ($26), although those aren’t much less than Native shoes ($35-$50).  Am I missing any?!  Share in the comments below.

    • No blisters on any of them! The target ones were great but peeled REALLY easily, but my kids still wore them into the ground! I gotta admit, Natives hold up really well…and I’ve passed them on between my kids!
