“NativePath was born from a strong desire to create a path to better health — giving people a way to break free from their pain, fatigue, and unwanted weight.
The NativePath Difference
When Dr. Chad, a Doctor of Physical Therapy based in Austin, Texas, started to see a recurring theme of pain, fatigue, and chronic disease running rampant across his patients, he knew there was something more going on beneath the surface.
As he sought out answers, NativePath was born. And with that, a path to better health was paved, with nutrition products that make it easy. At NativePath, we’re with you for the long haul—giving you everything you need to live native—or as close to nature as humanly possible.”
“A second-generation shoe designer, Yosi Samra grew up in his father’s factory in New York City and spent countless hours absorbing the fine art of shoemaking. So when it came time for him to create his own eponymous footwear line in 2008, he was more than prepared.
Samra was a pioneer designer of what would become the popular fold-up ballet flat movement, elevating the style into one that was just as superior in structure and design as it was comfortable and convenient. Thanks to the premium he placed on high-quality genuine leathers, unique details, and cutting-edge fashion, the Yosi Samra brand quickly eclipsed its competitors and expanded to include matching children’s ballet flats,
The brand is youthful, trendy and fun – and the Yosi Samra headquarters are certainly a reflection of that.
“There’s always a furry dog in the lobby eager to greet visitors to the showroom,” says Samra. “Everyone loves the relaxed, less-corporate environment, and it’s reflected in the level of enthusiasm people have for their work. They’re motivated to succeed because they genuinely like the atmosphere and the people here.”
Yosi Samra’s runway-inspired styles have been featured in Vogue, InStyle and Glamour Magazines and spotted on some of fashion’s most trend-setting celebrities, including Sarah Jessica Parker, Anne Hathaway, and Halle Berry.
The Yosi Samra brand is available in over 1000 boutiques across the US and in 85 other countries, including 15 brand shops in Asia and the Middle East.”
