Homelessness is complex, but helping people escape it is simple. That is what we’re striving to do this weekend when we host our #NaotGivesBack event at Footwear Etc.

For three days, we will be at three different Footwear Etc. locations, showing off the latest styles in order to benefit Cityteam, a nonprofit serving the poor, the homeless and the lost in the United States and around the world. Cityteam compassionately reach out to one person at a time to help meet their immediate needs and introduce them to hope so they can truly transform their lives, their families and their communities.

Watch the video below to catch a glimpse of how we can make an impact on Cityteam in San Fransisco.

Keep Calm and Walk On at Hanig’s Footwear

As many of our #Naotics know, comfort is our number one priority and we want everyone to experience the comfort of Naot. That is why we are having an extra special trunk show this Thursday, May 26th from 11 AM – 4pm, hosted by Hanig’s Footwear in The Windy City. Not only are we showing off our exciting Fall 2016 Collection, but we will also be partnering with Calm Chicago, Center for Mindfulness and Compassionate Transformation!

Chicago is a great city to live and work in, but all the noise and the stress of walking in a big city can take a toll on your mental and physical health. Hillary Johnson, founder of Calm Chicago, will give Hanigs’ event attendees a personalized 3-minute walking meditation instruction to help them get through the day. Also, everyone who participates in the mediation will be entered to win a pair of Naot sandals plus 50% off a single session at Calm Chicago!

What will we learn in the walking meditation?

  • How to walk mindfully
  • How to notice all sensations of walking
  • How to stay present in a busy environment
  • How walking can reduce stress
  • How your posture determines your confidence level

The first step to distress your life in any busy city starts with the shoes. That being said, no one does it better than Naot Footwear. Our secret is the unique anatomical footbed, designed to quickly align to the specific contours of the wearer’s feet. It is flexible, soft, shock absorbent, supports the heel and alleviates fatigue and pain. We’re not biased or anything, but those sound like the perfect shoes if you ask us!

#NaotGivesBack x three!

Another week, another trunk show and donation event! This week is extra special for Naot Footwear because we’re hosting three #NaotGivesBack events across the country in just one day. Why would we do that? Because you know we love helping others and we want to see how #naotic we can get this weekend.

As we’ve mentioned before, every community we touch has a story with a different charity they hold near and dear to their heart. We feel so honored to be helping various charities this week that have a primary focus, empowering women who need it the most.

Take a look below to see what our agenda looks like this Saturday.

Our first event of the day will be held at Dardano’s Shoes in Denver, Colorado. Everyone who attends the trunk show will be able to contribute to SafeHouse Denver just by simply trying on shoes. This nonprofit assists adults, children and youth in reclaiming their right to a life free from domestic violence. They work to eliminate domestic violence by providing shelter, working with public agencies and offering educational programming to prevent future violence.

Our second event of the day will be held at Englin’s Fine Footwear located in Indianapolis, benefitting The Julian Center. This nonprofit supports victims of domestic violence, sexual assault and other life crises. Their programs and services are designed to contribute to a significant reduction in the incidence of domestic violence and sexual assault, to support survivors in healing and to help break the intergenerational cycle of abuse.

Our last event of the day will be held at Tip Top Shoes located in the Upper West Side of New York City. This trunk show will benefit Win (Women in Need), a nonprofit that has been helping homeless women and their children transform their lives through a progressive and holistic approach that doesn’t simply provide a hand out, but a way out. Win’s life-changing process starts with safe, clean housing and includes vital programs and services. Both of these factors together help break the cycle of homelessness so that women and children who are caught in the cycle can look forward to a brighter future.

Have you ever heard the saying, “If you don’t think shoes are important, just ask Dorothy and Cinderella”? Although there is truth to this statement, our #NaotGivesBack events prove that shoes are not only important, but also life changing. By partnering with local charities across the United States, we’ve been able to donate hundreds of pairs of Naots to people who need it the most in a short amount of time. That being said, we wouldn’t be able to do it without the continued support from our amazing fans!

This week we’re hosting a trunk show and donation event at Schuler Shoes in Minnesota! This event is extra special because we’ll be at all 10 Schuler Shoes locations sharing the two things we love the most: fashion and helping those in need. Everyone who comes to the event will be able to contribute to Good in the ‘Hood just by simply trying on shoes.

Many local bloggers will be in attendance including lifestyle bloggers Being Zhenya, Already Pretty, Mostly Lisa and Chronicles of Nothing.

Good in the ‘Hood is a nonprofit dedicated to helping the needy and less fortunate urban population and those that have been marginalized by difficult circumstances. Through youth mentoring, internships and adult advocacy programs, they are able to offer effective support for those desiring to move forward in life.

If you’d like to attend this event, please RSVP on our Facebook Event page.

Can’t make it? Not a problem! Shop Naot on SchulerShoes.com on May 5-7 and a pair will be donated in your name.
