Trend Alert: Colorblocking

As we slowly drift into fall, we also begin the transition into a new wardrobe. Suddenly we are trading in our colorful, lightweight outfits for thicker materials in muted colors. But don’t worry, just because summer is bidding us farewell it does not mean we have to surrender our style too!

Colorblocking is the perfect technique to help incorporate interesting pops of color into outfits this fall. You’ll get the best of both worlds — nude tones mixed with bold and vibrant accent colors. Can we all cheers to that?!

Below we’ve compiled a list of our favorite colorblocked Naot shoes.  Which ones are your favorite?

THE PAPAKI

The Papaki is the perfect transition shoe as we go from summer to fall. Open-toed, the Papaki boasts feminine details, like a padded front ruched design and sleek cutout back heel. Shown in teal and latte, the latte will act as a great base color to any outfit while the teal will provide the color pop that sets your outfit over the top.

THE HELM

The Helm remains on our list as the perfect fall bootie; shown in a pecan & olive colorblock, this boot will add a finishing touch to any outfit this fall! The Helm bootie has a double-zipper for an easy on-off, as well as a small heel for some added height.

THE LEILANI

Mixed-finish leathers and trendy faux buckles help this shoe mix comfort and style with ease. The Leilani is the perfect shoe to just slip on and go while matching any fall outfit in your closet!

THE GROOVY

For those who are looking for a rugged-chic option, the Groovy is the perfect boot for you. This unique bootie has double zippers and a lace-up front, as well as mixed-leathers, to provide lots of interesting details. Prepare yourself for tons of compliments!

Wear it now & later…

It’s inevitable, our wardrobes change just as the seasons do.  Come fall we are forced to ditch our strappy tank tops and flowy skirts for cozy sweaters and colorful scarves.  With that we also swap our beloved sandals for more seasonally appropriate clogs and shoes. Having a shoe that can transition from season to season with you will make this process a lot easier.

The Helm is the perfect summer to fall bootie. Lightweight, the Helm boasts a 1.5 inch stacked heel and double zippers for greater accessibility. With fine details like a two-tone upper, it adds an effortless accent to any outfit.

Below we’ve shown how you can seasonally style the Helm bootie.

SUMMER

Pair the Helm bootie with a floral dress for the perfect summer outfit. With bare legs and a colorful clutch, this shoe will be the perfect finishing touch.

FALL

As the weather grows colder, the Helm remains the perfect bootie. Match your favorite jeans and an earth tone sweater with the Helm for a chic fall ensemble.

To our employees, customers & consumers,

“Hate is a cancer, and left unchecked it destroys everything in its path. Its scars last generations. History has taught us this time and time again, both in the United States and countries around the world.” -Tim Cook- Apple CEO

Over the last few days we have witnessed the ugly face of bigotry rear its head. We have seen horrific displays of racism and of anti-Semitism. This week we were painfully reminded that the evils of Neo- Nazism and white supremacy are still very much alive.

These events were motivated by hatred and filled with despicable acts of violence. 

Growing up with a mother who survived the Nazi death camps and who lost most of her family to their vitriolic hate, I cannot remain silent. As a family, as a company and as humans we cannot stand idly by. No one should be permitted to exhibit these horrendous displays of unmitigated abhorrence.

There is no place in the United States or anywhere in the world for such horrific words and actions.

Our prayers go out to the grieving families of those that lost their lives while standing up for justice.

We will not be silenced. We will continue to spread our message of universal compassion, kindness and peace through our actions and through our shoes.

 Sincerely,

Steven and Susan Lax

Naot Malibu

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
