Naotics of the Month: September 2016

The weather may be cooling down, but our Naotics’ style is just warming up!

In early September, beauty and style blogger @beingzhenya slipped on our Tampa sandals on her visit to Chicago. She described the brownstones in Chicago as gorgeous, but we must admit, her outfit is what really catches our eye.

Lori Leinard rocked her Dorith sandals all over Disney World in Orlando, so you know she was comfortable! Can you guess which Disney character she’s representing in this picture?

What people are saying: Normally I wear a flat heel, so this was different for me, but I wanted to wear something special to a wedding. I wore them all evening and danced in them too. Very comfortable, supportive shoe. I have plantar fasciitis and am very particular about my shoes. Very nice to find a dressy, stylish comfortable heel.

What people are saying: It is a miracle and my feet are in heaven! I finally found the perfect boot that doesn’t hurt my hallux limitus and has excellent arch support. This boot is more streamlined (less bulky) than the other Naot tall boots (I tried them all) and fits nice and snug around the calf. I have narrow feet and skinny legs. It is a functional and fashionable boot that looks awesome with dresses, short skirts, jeans, and leggings. My search (of probably about 10 different boots) is over!

What people are saying: I have a hard time finding ankle boots because the shanks are usually so big that they don’t securely hold my foot in place. This boot has a very nice fit to it and excellent arch support. It is very nice looking and I wear for business attire with a dress or pants. It’s cute for casual wear also.

What people are saying: I’m loving these shoes! At first I thought the heel would be too high for comfort, but I can just about hike in these! The lace look keeps them from being boring,  I have had many compliments on them. And there’s a brilliant shortcut designed in: you can zip them on and off, and not have to mess with the laces!! Love them.

What people are saying: These shoes fit like a glove on my narrow feet, which I normally have a hard time finding shoes for. They look good with jeans and slacks. I love Naot’s styles!

What people are saying: This is a very comfortable shoe. It does fit true to size. I have a narrow foot and this shoe fits great! I wore them without having to break them in.

What people are saying: I can’t say enough about these booties! I bought these for a trip to Munich and Prague – I was warned that the cobblestone streets in Prague were treacherous, and they weren’t kidding. But with these attractive little booties, the cobblestones were no challenge for me! Some days, we walked 7 miles and I never had sore feet or blisters. I was really glad that I read other reviews that suggested that I tighten the middle buckle to prevent my ankles from sliding in the boot, because I thought they were just for looks. These look great with leggings, slim jeans and boot-cut pants. The textured leather held up to light rain. They are my new favorite.

Naot Ardisia – Versatile Style, Supreme Comfort

Naotics everywhere can attest that there’s no footwear brand that balances comfort and style better than Naot. One of our favorite pairs of sandals this season is the Ardisia, so we created looks for three different Naotic styles. With their half-moon side cut outs, the full coverage upper is not only extremely supportive, but also very versatile. The Ardisia comes in two beautiful colors, Black Leather and Latte Brown Leather. Check out the trendy looks we’ve put together with them both below.

Look #1

Naot Ardisia Maxi SkirtFor our first Ardisia look, we’ve paired the Black Leather Ardisias with a blush-colored loose slash neck batwing sleeve sweater, and a slimming black ribbed maxi skirt. To accent the look, we’ve selected a medium nude leather shoulder bag with black trim, accented by a gold banded bangle and a pair of yellow gold opal stud earrings to make your ears sparkle. To top off the chic look is a black wide-rimmed boho hat with gold accents, protecting your skin from getting too much sun.

Look #2

Naot Ardisia Casual Look

For our second look, we paired the Latte Brown Ardisias, with a cozy olive cotton modal-blend t-shirt and vintage speckled gaucho pants. Whether you’re spending a day at the beach, or just walking around town, the wide brim straw sun hat with keep you in shade. Stroll around with a white starfish beach tote to keep yourself organized, and lastly keep track of time with a versatile gold-metal mesh bracelet watch.

Look #3

Naot ArdisiaThe centerpiece of this outfit (aside from our Latte Brown Leather Ardisias of course), is a peach scoop neck racer back tank top. To snazz up the look, we have a cream pair of wide leg cotton-twill pants. This cute outfit wouldn’t be complete without some elegant accessories, so we’ve paired the scoop neck with a gold multi-chain necklace that falls perfectly with the neckline. Glossy gold circle drop earrings and a gold lace cuff tie in the necklace perfectly. To finish off the look, shade your eyes from the warm summer sun with some pink rounded sunglasses, and an oversized tan shopper tote to carry everything you need on a nice day!

Whichever Naot Ardisia fits your taste, your shoes will provide long-lasting comfort without sacrificing style.

Naot Footbeds

Take a closer look at Naot Footbeds

Your feet are the foundation of your body, with your arch being perhaps the most important structural feature. Making sure your feet are supported with proper shoes is imperative to your body’s overall health, which is why we took a lot of time to select the finest footbeds for every type of foot. Our uniquely engineered insoles are a blend of natural latex and cork that are designed to replicate the shape of the foot with a strong emphasis on arch support.

Screen Shot 2016-08-23 at 10.56.24 AM

Take a closer look at each component of a Naot footbed:

  1. HALLUX SUPPORT – Enables natural hold of the big toe, prevents the foot from slipping forward and improves the foot’s hold on the shoe.
  2. ELEVATED FOOTBED CENTER – The elevated center of the insole releases pressure in the joints of the central part of the foot.
  3. ARCH SUPPORT – Allows the weight of the body to be correctly distributed and reduces pressure generated by the spinal column and joints.
  4. DEEP HEEL INDENTATION – Helps the body’s balance and maintains the natural shape of the pad of the heel that protects the heel bone.
  5. FLEXIBILITY, DURABILITY & SHOCK ABSORPTION – The footbed is made of a unique, high-quality blend of cork & latex, granting it flexibility, shock absorbing qualities and long-term durability.
  6. LATEX SPONGE LAYER – A layer of padding that provides caressing and softness.

Podiatrists and general doctors alike recommend Naots because of their complete support for people with foot, knee, hip and back problems, including plantar fasciitis and arthritis.

So, when you’re deciding which Naot shoe to buy, it’s essential to look at not only the style, but also the footbed that will best fit your feet. Take a closer look at all of our footbeds here: http://bit.ly/2bMB1g9.

Naot Gives Back: Peltz Shoes and Homeless Empowerment Program

Naot ended July with a very warm heart! As Naot fans know, it’s always been important for Yaleet, Inc. to give back to the communities we are a part of. Our Donation Program, which partners Naot retailers with various organizations, is one of the ways we give back to those who are less fortunate.

 

On July 29th, 2016 we partnered with Peltz Shoes in Clearwater, Florida to bring the female members of the Homeless Empowerment Program (HEP) shoes which are both stylish and comfortable for them to wear.

The event was more than a success! Following the event, we are proud to say that we delivered 200 pairs of Naot shoes to the gracious women at HEP.

 

GaryAndBrent
Gary Peltz (Co-owner of Peltz) left, and Brent Weingarten (local Naot Sales Rep) right.

The lovely ladies were excited to have shoes that are practical for long days on their feet.

Read some of their quotes from the event below:

ROSE -­­ “These make my feet feel happy and pretty. Thank you for making me lucky number 7.”

KEMI – “This was my first time participating in an event like this and it’s phenomenal! I stand on my feet at work and I’ve never been able to afford good quality comfortable shoes, and the shoes also look pretty! I’m very appreciative that you did this for our community.”

LAURA – “My feet feel fantastic, these shoes are so comfortable. Thank you!”

Now women like Kemi can work long hours without having to worry about the foot ache of a long day’s work, thanks to her high-quality and handcrafted Naots, and Peltz Shoes.

Naot Sandals: It’s All in The Details

No footwear company knows the importance of craftsmanship and details better than Naot. All of our shoes are handmade with precision and care. Here’s a look at four Naot summer sandals that go the extra mile in both comfort and appearance.

Intrigue

DSCF6571

Footbed: Impulse

Fit: Narrow to Medium width

 Colors Available:

  • Black Luster with Silver Luster Leather
  • Latte Brown with Gold Leather (pictured)

DSCF6577

Why It Stands Out: This unique 2.75” wedge with contrasting leathers can dress up any outfit. You can rest easy about the height boost they provide because their intricate hook & loop ankle strap provides extra support. The cork and latex Impulse footbed wrapped in leather & microfiber prevents slipping and molds to the shape of the foot with wear, which means no matter what summer fun you’re having your feet will never ache.

Where You Can Buy It: Shoe Meadow

Susan

DSCF6597

Footbed: Elegant

Fit:  Narrow to medium width

Colors Available:

  • Polar Sea Leather with Glass Silver (pictured)
  • Brass Leather with Glass Gold
  • White Leather with Glass Silver
  • Black Madras with Glass Brown
  • Silver Threads with Glass Silver

DSC_0026.JPG

Why It Stands Out: The Susan sandal is a feminine slide sandal with rhinestone accents across the straps providing a look that can be easily dressed up or down to cater to your summer outing. The Susan’s subtle rhinestone padded straps will keep your feet stylish and comfy all day. Naot’s cork & latex Elegant footbed is wrapped in a pampering suede that mold to the shape of the foot with wear, which means they’ll only fit better as the summer goes on.

Where You Can Buy It: Simons Shoes

Handpainted VogueDSCF6582

Fit: Medium Width

Colors Available:

  • Teal with Brown Leather
  • Ink with Brown Leather

DSCF6584

Why It Stands Out: This unique 2″ heel sandal, is made with impressive and intricate detail. With its cutout designs & rivet accents, the shoe has a personality of its own. The best part about the Handcrafted Vogue is that each pair is a handpainted one-of-a-kind pair, making it uniquely yours. Best of all this sole offers the look of the 2″ heel without the achy feel. The anatomic cork & latex footbed has a microfiber center to prevent slipping, which means you can dance the summer nights away in your Vogues.

Watch how the unique handpainting process works for Naot’s new Handcrafted Collection here.

Where You Can Buy It: Instep Austin

Reserve

DSCF6601

Footbed: Vineyard

Fit: Medium Width

Colors Available: 

  • Shiny Black with Metallic Road Leather
  • Metal with Pewter Leather (pictured)
  • Dusty Silver with Champagne Leather
  • Sea Pearl with Silver Luster Leather

DSC_0035

Why It Stands Out: The Naot Reserve is a feminine back strap sandal with a beautiful floral rhinestone accent. The Reserve includes a side panel for extra foot support for those long summer walks. The sandal also features a removable footbed, allowing the footbed to be replaced extending the life of the sandals.The Vineyard Collection features a 2″ polyurethane sole which is extremely lightweight and durable, leaving you light and happy on your feet.
