Damian Van Zyll de Jong: founder of Native Shoes


You've probably heard of Crocs, those foamy garden clogs. But have you heard of Native?

They're the Vancouver-designed shoes that have taken the world of fashion by storm.

Coming up, I have the low-down on the man behind Native Shoes, Damian Van Zyll de Jong (not the Damian in the vid), when I join host Stephen Quinn for another Fashion Monday on CBC Radio One's On The Coast at 3:49 PM, 88.1 FM.

Also listen live online with the CBC Radio pop-up.

Here's a great video of how the shoes are PRESSED/FORGED as opposed to cut, stitched and glued in traditional shoe making.
