But don’t sacrifice comfort for fashion– our Kata shoes will be a staple in your luggage due to their gorgeous style. No wonder these beauties are flying off shelves!

Jill from Florida says:I love these shoes! This is my first real pair of “comfort” shoes.I was really worried about comfort shoes looking unfashionable, but these are actually quite cute. I’ve received multiple compliments on the shoes. The best part about this shoe is the comfort factor — I never had to break it in, and wore it for an entire long work day and my feet felt very comfortable throughout. I also love that this has good support for my feet.”

Cruisin’ Around

The best thing about cruises is that everything is in one place! Whether you’re heading to the pool, dinner and drinks or live entertainment at night, you don’t have to go very far.

Our Beatnik sandals are definitely a Coachella must-have! Not only does the 1.75” stacked heel make them super trendy, but it gives festival-goers extra support AND added height. We got inspired by Lizzy van der Ligt’s festival look, and think our Beatnik sandals would pair perfectly with cut-off jeans and flowy crop top. We’re all in favor of that flower child vibe!

Transitional Shoes You Need for Spring

With 60 degree weather and flowers in bloom, it’s safe to say that spring has finally sprung! While it’s glorious walking weather, in some parts of the country it’s a little too soon to break out our favorite strappy sandals. Have no fear though, we have transitional shoes that match the weather as much as they do this season’s trends. Take a look at what Naotics  are saying about their favorite shoes for spring to summer.

Arataki

DSC_0029.jpg

Amanda from Colorado Says:

“Love these Aratakis. I now have 2 colors and wear them regularly when it’s warm but not quite warm enough for sandals. No pedi. yet this spring. I love the laser cut punches on the toe area. Adds interest and air flow too! Good adjustability, soft leather. What else could I want?”

Verbena

Grace from Seattle Says:

“Fell in love with these as soon as I opened the box! They are so comfortable and light! Look great with jeans or shorts. I think these will be my go to summer shoes! They look very well made and will hopefully hold up well, which is good because they are quite an investment.”

Kata

Maria from California Says:

“I love these shoes! The best part about this shoe is the comfort factor — I never had to break it in, and wore it for an entire long work day (and I stand at my standing desk for hours a day) and my feet felt very comfortable throughout. I also love that this has good support for my feet. I bought it in the nude color and love it so much that I’m going to purchase it in the black too! This ran true to size for me, and I was able to get a comfortably secure fit by tying the laces tightly and double knotting them so the laces didn’t come undone. I’d highly recommend this shoe.”

Shop the Kata at Simons Shoes.

Papaki 

DSC_0097.jpg

Angela from Texas Says:

I just got this sandal and it is oh so cute! I’m so glad Naot is making some stylish sandals while retaining the necessary support and comfort. I was recently diagnosed with metatarsalgia and need shoes that give me arch and metatarsal support. I had custom orthotics made but they do not work in sandals. The Naot’s are great, and one extra plus is the inserts are made of cork and latex and are removable, so my orthotic pro can mold them to my feet for even better support and comfort. You can even order another set of inserts if necessary!”

Naot at the Oscars

Although Hollywood’s most glamorous night has come to an end, everyone is still buzzing about the gorgeous red carpet looks. From chiffon to sequins and lace to leather, each star looked absolutely stunning in their own style!

Of course the dresses were to die for, but you can’t forget the one item that carried all the stars down the red carpet: their shoes! We chose some of our favorite Oscar looks and paired them with our new evening wear heels.

Do you agree with our fabulous pairings?

Halle Berry

1.png

Academy Award winner Halle Berry was a total showstopper in her sparkly Atelier Versace gown. But did you know that she had to have a practice run in her heels just to make sure she could make it up the stage? That is why we think she would have adored our black Formal heels. This shoe has a 2” heel without the feel, allowing anyone (even Halle Berry) to walk up the Oscar stairs without missing a step. Let’s not forget the gorgeous rhinestone detailing, because what woman doesn’t love a little sparkle?

Emma Stone

Emma Stone was a big winner during the Oscars, winning Best Actress for her leading role in La La Land. Her ensemble also deserves a win as she donned a gold Givenchy haute couture gown. With gold surrounding this superstar all night, we decided to pair her dress with our gold Formal heels. Not only does this heel have a hook and loop instep strap to create the perfect fit, but it also has beautiful rhinestones making this shoe stand out from the crowd — just like the leading lady herself.

Scarlett Johnansson

Award presenter Scarlett Johnansson looked flawless in her floor-skimming Alaia gown and black statement belt. However, when asked if she wore her heels during the Oscars practice run she stated, “I couldn’t imagine having to wear these these shoes two days in a row.” Our Naotics know that’s something they never have to worry about!

With that said, we have a feeling Scarlett would have loved rehearsing and strutting her stuff in our Innovate heels. Just like her statement belt, these 2” heels make a statement with the cascading rhinestones across two straps. Subtle yet eye catching, these shoes also pair perfectly with the belt which is key because, let’s be honest ladies, little details always matter.

Priyanka Chopra

Actress Priyanka Chopra walked the red carpet in this beautifully executed geometric number from Ralph & Russo. The gown featured a structured corset with hand-appliqued metallic plastic crystals, shining as bright as the shiny Oscar award itself. Going along with the geometric theme, we decided to pair her dress with our Afordita heels. These heels have so much gorgeous detailing with the contrasting leathers, movable ornamentation and delicate cutouts. Not only would she be comfortable all night long with the 2” heel, the hint of gold gives the entire outfit a pop of color.

Spring 2017 Sneak Peek

Naot Kata

NAO_IMG_10040-2.jpg

Our Kata shoes are a staple that you will want in your wardrobe this season. When your feet need a break from the everyday grind, transition to the pure comfort in this trendy lace-up. Available in two colors, this shoe will be sure to be ‘must-have’ that you won’t want to take off!

Mary from Seattle, WA says, “I really like this shoe. It’s the perfect blend of shoe/sandal look. The leather is quite sod and even though the back is high, it doesn’t bother my heel. The laces will have to be double-knotted for extended wear as they loosen up after wearing a bit. I have bunions and a narrow heel, so I find these Naots accommodate my foot nicely and true to size.”

Naot Rianna

David B. Says:

“The Naot Pilot are a great pair of shoes. Classy and comfortable without going over the top. The Naot cork inserts are really quite possibly the greatest shoe inner I’ve ever seen or felt, bar none. I’ve had their moccasins and they’ve lasted forever. The blue suede is a great looking shoe that doesn’t overdo it, definitely recommended.”

“I was looking for a new shoe that was a step-up in style from my usual brand when I came across Naots. I love these shoes! They feel great, look great and great quality on my first impression. These are my very first pair of Naots so, only the test of time will tell how they hold up, but so far I highly recommend them.”

Jimmie from Madison Says:

Bought these on a recommendation by my wife. She’s owned multiple pairs over the years and always said, “oooohhhh Naot!” I’ve never seen her uncomfortable in Naot shoes and her interest in the product quality & design is reason enough based on the number of shoes she owns. My first impression was the quality of the product and secondly was the style, and third and most importantly was fit. I have wide feet and the traditional fit of Naot s awesome without having to go up a size to accommodate the width of my feet. Quality and cool, an awesome brand for men.”

Jason from Maine Says:

“They will fit a little funny at first, then the phone will ring, and you’ll have those chores to do, until four hours later, you’ll realize you haven’t noticed these new Naots fit so perfectly, that you were an idiot for wearing plastic foam shoes all these years, when you could have had all-leather hand-lasted slip-on Naots. Thick but flexible sole keeps you out of the snow, they’re perfect for school or driving or gaming, feet don’t sweat, warm dry suede-and-cork form-fitting footbed like 400-count linen sheets. Ahhh….”

#NaotGivesBack at J. Stephens in Scottsdale, Arizona

Screen Shot 2017-01-19 at 11.27.17 AM.png

Throughout the year, we have the pleasure of hosting #NaotGivesBack trunk shows and donation events across the country. While it gives us the opportunity to showcase our entire line of Naot shoes, we’re most excited to be able to give back to some incredible, local organizations.

With that said, we’re pleased to share that we’ll be hosting a trunk show at J. Stephens in Scottsdale, Arizona this Saturday! Our goal is to donate over 100 pairs of shoes to the UMOM New Day Centers organization.

UMOM’s mission is to prevent and end homelessness with innovative strategies and housing solutions. Their vision is to be the leader in breaking the cycle of homelessness, and we’re honored to help support them in this endeavor.

Naot FB-19.png

Everyone who comes to the event will be able to contribute to UMOM New Day Centers just by simply trying on shoes. When you try on a pair of Naots, we will donate another pair in your name to those in need. If you buy a pair, we will donate two. It’s really a win, win.

If you’re in the Scottsdale area, we would love to have you attend and shop for an amazing cause!
