Naotics of the Month: August 2016

August was hot, hot, hot, with Naotics wearing their sandals across the world! We love seeing how these Naotics rocked their favorite shoes this month.

@lizzieryder paired our Ardisia sandals with skinny jeans and a basic tee for a classic, comfy look in Chicago.

Boston-dwelling @sassyinsequins spent a weekend frolicking around her city like a tourist showing family the best things to eat, see, and do in Boston. Of course, her feet were well taken care of in her Pixie wedges.

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.

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.

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

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.

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.
