New Arrivals: The Fall Collection is Here!

In just a few short weeks, the air will start to grow colder, leaves will change colors and everything will become pumpkin flavored – signaling the start of fall. Soon, we’ll be saying goodbye to sandals and hello to booties and clogs. To celebrate the start of the new season, we wanted to give you a first look at our new Fall 2017 Collection.

Which shoes will you add to your collection?

Naot Helm

Sept. TW-2

If you’re searching for the perfect fall bootie, look no further than the Helm. Although this bootie may be small, it packs a lot of fine details. The Helm mixes textures of suede and leather in a way that is sure to make any outfit stand out. While the double zipper provides greater accessibility, the 1.5 inch stacked heel allows this bootie to transition flawlessly from work to play.

Naot Timu

If you are a fan of the Kirei, you’ll love our new Timu. The Timu emulates a classic mary jane but the lace up details make them one-of-a-kind. Let’s be honest, who doesn’t love a trendy ghillie-lace up?! The comfort and style of these shoes makes them perfect for everyday wear.

Naot Leilani

Sept. TW-3.png

The Leilani is the perfect shoe for a seamless transition from summer to fall. Available in black and vintage camel, the contrasting textures on this shoe are sure to match any outfit in your closet! The faux buckles provide a vintage detail and the thick sole will add height and length to you and your outfit. These are the perfect comfort shoes for fall.

Naot Sycamore

Sept. TW-4.png

One of our favorite additions to the popular Bloom Collection is the gorgeous two-tone Sycamore. This shoe has a 1.75” heel, providing height while still managing to be extremely lightweight. It features a bold ankle strap with a faux buckle, giving added support to keep you going through the day. With the padded heel cup, there’s nothing you can’t do in these shoes.

Our Favorite Styles for Wide Feet

For those of us with wide feet, shopping for cute & comfortable shoes can be an absolute nightmare!  Really – who has time to deal with aches and blisters from wearing shoes that are too tight?  It just isn’t fair, which is why we rounded up a list of fuller fitting Naots that will walk you right through summer in comfort & style.

Each shoe mentioned below has a wider base and adjustable straps, allowing you to adjust throughout the day as needed.

Naot Malibu

Christina from Detroit says: “Most wonderful footwear! I have a wide foot, high arch and this style is perfect for anyone with that type foot. I did go up one size and it fit perfectly! I bought two pairs. I have never written a review before, but the shoes make your feet feel good.”

Shop the Malibu at STEP! Shoes.

Naot Melody

Melody from San Francisco says: “Love these sandals. Just got them, put them on, and still wearing them hours later. I’d been wanting a pair of silvery-gray sandal for a while, so when I saw this one by Naot, I ordered, and am not disappointed. This is my second pair of Naot sandals, and I’m happy with both pairs. They are very comfortable and fully adjustable with velcro straps. They are good looking and well made, with a replaceable foot liner.”

Shop the Melody at Simons Shoes.

Naot Prescott

Janet from Miami says: “Not all footbeds are alike on Naots but those on this shoe are perfect for me. I love the design of this particular sandal and wear it with both casual and semi-dress clothes – looks great with skirts. First I ordered in the white/pewter color and it felt so good I ordered the black/gold. I love them both and they last for years – so the investment is a good one as is the comfort.”

Naot Cornett

Naot Kirei Wide963765-p-MULTIVIEW.jpg

Pat from Georgia says: “Love the look and feel. Ordered two more in the same style but different colors. Have bunions, wide feet with narrow heel and high arch and must wear orthotics. Very comfortable for long periods. Strap is long enough for a high arch and feels secure and comfortable. Cute too!”

For a mini-vacation closer to home, nothing sounds better (and more within the budget) than a relaxing staycation! Gain a new appreciation for your hometown and explore local sites  with one of our favorite sandals this season, the Rianna. Rianna is a fashionable sandal available in 4 attractive colors.

It’s stylish, easy to fasten and amazingly comfortable. I can wear them all day, even after I get home from work. Great sandal!”

Neutral Shoes – A Bare Necessity

In a previous blog, we mentioned the importance of owning a LBS (little black sandal) and how it can practically go with anything in your closet. While this is totally true and a necessary ‘must-have,’ there is another shoe that is just as powerful: a neutral!

Let’s be honest, has anyone ever regretted purchasing a neutral shoe? Not only do neutral heels elongate the legs (bonus points), but neutral flats and slip-ons go with anything, making them a key component to a well-rounded wardrobe. Instagrammer Dearly Bethany executes this look flawlessly with our Naot Gabriela sandals. Her goal is to photograph a new outfit each day, while remaining true to her personal style and aesthetic.

While you’re on the hunt for the perfect nude tones, don’t be afraid to have fun with it! It doesn’t have to be a boring shade of blah-beige. Spice it up with a metallic sheen or sparkly feminine rhinestones. Just make sure you love it, because the key to owning the perfect neutral shoe is rocking it with confidence!
