Shoes for the Mother of the Bride (or Groom!)

A child’s wedding is such a monumental day in a mother’s life, and while there’s no doubt that everyone’s attention will be focused on the bride, that doesn’t mean the mother of the bride shouldn’t look spectacular as well! After all, you’ve helped make this day possible, so you should feel special, too.

Moms, we’ve compiled a list of our favorite Naot shoes that will ensure you’re able to stay on your feet all wedding long. Say goodbye to those dance floor flip flops and say hello to these gorgeous and supportive styles!

The Innovate

If you can only have one pair of formal shoes in your closet, our Innovate heels should be it! These fabulous sandals feature feminine rhinestone accents to help you stand out in the wedding party. Best of all, the shoe offers the look of a lightweight 2-inch heel without the feel of wearing heels.

The Onward

Similar to the Innovate, this strappy heeled sandal features delicate rhinestones throughout the straps as well as a rhinestone buckle. The supportive heel cup and padded front will allow you to take these shoes from the altar to the reception without any pain!

 

The Vixen

Going for a more rustic look for an outdoor wedding? Try out our Vixen sandals! This strappy shoe features contrasting leathers throughout. The padded backstrap adds additional stability so you can greet and thank every guest free of pain. Best of all, the wedge heel will prevent you from sinking into grass!

The Intact

If you’re not into rhinestones and cutouts, check out our Intact heel! This sandal features a 2.25-inch heel and contrasting materials for added details. These minimalist shoes will be a perfect addition to your wardrobe even after the wedding!

 

All featured styles are available at Instep.

March 2018 Naotics of the Month

It’s true what they say–March comes in like a lion and out like a lamb! There certainly has been a mix of temperatures, and one thing we’ve been looking forward to seeing is the change in fashion that warmer weather brings. In our minds, all roads lead to spring, and if your shoes are comfortable, every step toward it will be that much more enjoyable!

Take a peek at some of our favorite #NAOTIC pictures throughout the month of March.

MARK & AMANDA – The NYC Couple

While warm weather calls for more barefoot adventures, you’ll need proper footwear for hitting the trails, too! That’s why Mark and Amanda selected our SOURCE by NAOT Harbor hiking sandals when gearing up for their recent hike to the Redstone Trailhead at Lake Mead National Park, NV. Best of all, these Harbor sandals let Mark and Amanda keep up with their adorable pup, Coco. 🐶

Find them at Simons Shoes.

SONYA – The Globalite

Near, far, wherever you are, Naot shoes are the perfect travel companion! Finding a pair of shoes that are stylish AND comfortable can be difficult, but with these versatile Pixie wedges, you’ll wonder why you ever packed any other shoes in your suitcase.

Naotic Sonya says, “I walked all over Malecon Puerto Vallarta in these platform sandals and no ache at the end of the day.” I don’t think we could have said it better ourselves. 🤷‍♀️ From walking around to shopping in the local markets, we can’t wait to see where Sonya will take us next.

Check them out at Shoe Spa.

JAIME HUFFMAN – The Charleston Blonde

How cute is this backroad photo of Jamie and her hubby? Her Arizona Tan Leather Helm booties work perfectly with capris for a flirty, yet practical look. They are ideal for those in-between weather days and a great option for any outdoorsy trips you have planned.

Best Naot Shoes for Travel – Part II

At Naot, we always want our customers to look and feel their best no matter where they’re heading. This means ensuring that our Naotics are not only comfortable and supported, but that they’re well-dressed for whatever adventure comes their way!

If you checked our blog last week, we shared some of our favorite Naot shoes to pack for outdoor adventure vacations, resort hopping and trips abroad. This week we’re sharing our top choices to wear when setting sail on a cruise, relaxing at a winery or gearing up for a theme park with your family. Take a look at the pairs we highlighted below!

Setting Sail

If you’re heading on a cruise this spring, you need to bring our Prescott sandals on board. These leather beauties scream “vacation mode” with their colorful and intricate details. The adjustable hook-and-loop closure means that they’re not only easy to slip on and off, but that they’re adjustable to your feet.

They’re the perfect vibrant and comfortable sandals to help you explore new neighborhoods or to lounge around the deck.

Find our Prescott sandals at Peltz Shoes.

Family Fun at a Theme Park

Bringing your little ones to a theme park? Comfort and flexibility is key! In order to keep up with their high energy, you’ll want to pack our Papaki sandals. As always, these padded sandals come with our removable, anatomic cork and latex footbed so they mold to the shape of the foot with wear. And with the 1″ polyurethane sole, they’re extremely lightweight, durable and slip-resistant.

Best of all, their hook & loop straps will prevent them from slipping off when hanging out on the swings or chasing your kids through the park. The only break you’ll need to take is for some ice cream to cool off!

Find our Papaki sandals at Instep.

“Wine-ding” Down at a Winery

Whether you’re heading to Napa or “staycationing” at a local winery, you’ll want to wear a pair of shoes that are cute enough for group photos but comfortable enough to wear through grassy vineyards. That’s where our Caprice wedges come in!

The Caprice wedge pairs perfectly with jeans or a dress and are dressy enough for a cocktail event or winery tour. The fully padded upper creates ultimate comfort while the faux buckle allows for adjustability. And with the microfiber center, you won’t have to worry about slipping after you’ve had a glass or two. 😉

European Adventure

Is it just us, or does roaming the streets of Italy or France make you want to step up your fashion game? Of course, you’ll want to be comfortable while taking long walks on cobblestone ground but it shouldn’t be at the expense of looking chic. That’s where our Pixie sandals come in!

We love our Pixie wedges because you can dress them down with casual jeans or dress them up with a dress for a night on the town. Best of all, they’re lightweight, comfortable and supportive enough to carry you through a full day of walking.

What Your (Naot) Shoes Say About You

At Naot, we think you can learn a lot about a person just by looking at their shoes. That’s why it’s important to us that we make shoes that are stylish, one-of-a-kind and well-made. After all, we want our Naotics to make an amazing first impression!

While all of our shoes are handmade in the same factory in Israel, there are so many different styles that make their own unique statement. Here are a few of our favorite styles and what we think they say about the Naotics wearing them.

The Tough Gal

Love to be in charge? Not afraid to show it? Our Begonia sandals have your name all over them.

With the 1.75” heel and statement buckles, these sandals say, “whatever comes my way, I can handle it.” They’re supportive enough for all-day wear, so you can seize the day without having to worry about anything stopping you. And though they’re spunky with a jagged sole, they do have a soft side, too. The interior is softly padded and lined with pampering suede.

Find them today at Simons Shoes.

The Flower Child

If you find yourself often telling people to “loosen up,” our Groovy boots are for you.

These ruggedly stylish lace-up ankle boots combine leather and suede for a look that’s “groovy” and carefree. They’re perfect for a fun day at the farmer’s market, an outdoor music festival or exploring a new city. And with full-length zippers on each side, you can be ready for an adventure at the drop of a hat.

Shop our Groovy boots at Shoes.com.

The “Energizer Bunny”

Here’s to the woman who doesn’t stop moving from the moment she wakes up until the moment she goes to sleep! She would stop and chat, but to be honest, she doesn’t really have the time.

If that sounds like you, our Kirei shoes should be your go-to. They feature an extremely lightweight, durable & slip resistant sole so you can run out the door without worrying about missing a step. And because it’s a maryjane flat, you can step in and step out into the world in record time. There’s no time to stop and put your feet up, and with our Kirei shoes, you won’t really need to.

Find them at Vernon Powell Shoes.

The Adventurer

Hey there, thrill-seeker. We found a pair of shoes that can keep up with you.

Whether you love hiking, camping, climbing or anything in between, our Harbor shoes will be your perfect travel companion. Like you, they’re tough, versatile and ready for any adventure that comes their way. And of course, they’re practical too, because safety isn’t something you take lightly.

Say “I Do” to These Naot Shoes!

Whether you’re planning your own wedding this month or have a few weddings to attend, we’ve rounded up a few stylish Naot shoes that will comfortably carry you from the I-do’s to the reception. After all, with so many important details to worry about, the last thing you want to be held back by is achy feet.

Here are some of our top choices!

THE FORMAL

Perfect for summer nuptials or tropical destination weddings, the Formal is the ultimate slide heel for any festive event in your life! With the block heel, you won’t have to worry about sinking into grass and sand, and best of all, you’ll be comfortable enough to dance the night away! The hook and loop feature allows you to create your perfect fit, whereas the delicate rivet accents help the shoe stand out.

Here’s what one wedding guest had to say about them:

“I love these sandals. I feel they are dressy enough for a formal occasion without the discomfort. I especially like the adjustable strap. It makes them feel more secure. This style is a winner!” – Jody, New Jersey

THE MYSTERY

The Mystery wedge is the perfect shoe for a bride who wants a little height without compromising comfort. This fashionable 2.75-inch wedge is lightweight, padded and even has a microfiber strip on the footbed to prevent slipping. That’s an important feature when you’re running around to greet your guests– especially if you’ve had a glass of champagne or two! Best of all, this wedge is beaded with rhinestone accents to give it the perfect, sparkly bridal touch.

We love this quote from one of our Naot brides:

“I wore Naot Mystery wedges on my wedding day could not believe how comfortable they were. My feet didn’t ache even for a second. I was thrilled and spent the whole night on the dance floor.” – Taryn, Chicago

THE HANDCRAFTED MAGNATE

Looking for a great pair of dressy oxfords? Look no further. The Naot Magnate will make you feel sleek, sophisticated and supported.  The hand-painted treatment on this shoe creates a “one-of-a-kind” look that will help you stand out on your big day. The removable suede-lined cork and latex footbed offers contoured support and comfort, which is vital when have to be on your feet for pictures, dancing and beyond!

Here’s what one Naotic had to say:

“Amazing – Comfort and style. Looks like a true dress shoe. Worth every penny, really.” – Todd, New York

THE AUDIENCE

Another great choice, the Naot Audience has a padded heel and tongue for all-day comfort. The Audience is also crafted with a hand-sewn Strobel construction, making it extremely flexible. You can lace them up and head to the ceremony without any fussing after that!

Here’s what one groom said about his Audience loafers:

“I got so many compliments on my shoes on the wedding day. Everyone asked me where I got them! They were also really comfortable and supportive all day long.” – Bryan, Chicago

January 2018 Naotics of the Month

We’d like to extend massive kudos to all of the Naotics that remained fashionable throughout the month of January! Even through snowstorms and freezing temps, these fashionistas kept their cool and dressed to impress all month long.

Take a look at some of our favorite looks from Naotics throughout the month of January.

Megan Hoole – She’s All Dolled Up

Rain or shine, this gal looks divine! Megan made the best of a snowy situation and rocked her Naot Gazania boots on even the coldest winter days. Even more, we love that she dressed them up and down, pairing them with leggings and comfy sweaters to blouses and skirts.

We ❤ you, Megan!

Christin’s style stands out even when she’s wearing all neutrals. This simple yet stylish look is perfect for a gal-on-the-go because it’s comfortable, versatile and chic– especially when paired with our black Helm booties! Stay warm (and fabulous), Christin.

Kiki – The Blonde Abroad

How can you not love this trendy world traveler? Her photos are always incredible and her captions always make us smile. This month, she was spotted in Cape Town, South Africa rocking modern overalls and Naot Santa Barbara sandals. We can’t wait to see where she takes them next!

Taylor Brown – The Styled Press

We’ve got all of the heart eyes for this photo from Taylor. And is it just us, or do the colors remind you of bubbly champagne?! Between the neutral tones in our tan/beige Helm booties and the blush tunic turtleneck, we might just pour ourselves a glass. 😉 All jokes aside, we could see ourselves re-wearing this outfit all the time!

What Our Customers Are Saying About Us

Oh, online shopping– you are such a high risk, high reward game! While it’s so fun to unwrap a present delivered to your door, it can be so disappointing when the product doesn’t live up to your expectations. Sure, you can always send the item back, but who has time for one more errand!?

At Naot, we pride ourselves on making shoes that live up to their reputation. When shoes have the Naot name on them, you know that they are handcrafted and built to last. And most importantly, they look great, too.

But don’t just take our word for it! We gathered some of our favorite customer reviews from real Naotics around the country. Here’s what they had to say about their recent online purchases.

The Naot Helm

“These little boots meet the “Goldilocks Effect,” not too tall, not too short, but “just right!” After going through other Naot ankle boots, I finally found these. They are comfortable with little to no break-in time; they are stylish, but not flashy. These boots look great with skirts and slacks.” – Christine, Texas

Find a pair for yourself at Dodds Shoe Co.

The Naot Kirei

“I bought these shoes two weeks ago and have worn them every weekday since. I take the bus to work and want comfortable shoes that look decent with a suit. These are perfect! They are so comfortable from the first time that I put them on. I liked them so much, that I ordered another pair in the brown/tan shade – they arrived yesterday and are just as comfortable… I am a size 7½ and got size 38.” – ShoePerson, California

Shop them at Englin’s Fine Footwear.

Naot Pilot

“These days, it’s not always easy to find quality workmanship. But that what you get from these Naot Pilot(s); the footbed is completely padded, so amazingly comfortable! Quality throughout, that you will notice!”- “SentOneMike”, Ohio

Find a pair of our Pilot shoes at Shoes RX.

Naot Gazania Boots

“Love these boots so much. Completely comfortable right out of the box…love the arch support. Super-fun style – an interesting hybrid with a little bit of bad-ass attitude and the casualness of a sneaker. The grey can take on a blue-ish look when worn with jeans…works great.” – Monica, Oregon

Shop them today at Simons Shoes.

Naot Wisdom


“The most comfortable dress shoes I ever owned. I have brown and black versions of this shoe. It is extremely comfortable to wear all day walking around the building where I work.”- Steve, USA
