From Desk to Dinner

Ladies – let’s be honest, the BEST shoes are ones that are not only cute and comfortable, but are extremely versatile. We’re talking about shoes that go from day to night, week to weekend, and our personal favorite, from desk to dinner.

With summer underway, client functions, happy hours and late night dinners are sure to be on your calendar. And when you’re always on-the-go, the last thing you need to worry about is throwing extra shoes in your bag. That’s why, at Naot Footwear, we have many styles that’ll carry you from mid-morning meetings straight through 5 o’clock happy hours!

Chic

Colors available:

  • Black Raven/Black Luster/Metal
  • Maple Brown/Mirror/Pewter
  • Light Gray/Mirror/Quartz (pictured)

For a chic look, we suggest a sandal that is just that: the Chic! This feminine 2” slide features a unique design with contrasting leathers and small cutout details.  A hook & loop front strap and gore at the instep allow for adjustability. Want to know the most comfortable part? The cork and latex footbed is wrapped in leather with a microfiber center to prevent slipping and molds to the shape of the foot with wear. Pretty incredible, are we right?!

Shop the Chic at Bodell’s.

Bounty

The Bounty is the perfect 2.25” heel if you’re looking for a classic style that can still be taken out for a night on the town. With padded straps and a faux buckle hook & loop closure at the instep, this sandal will provide the ultimate comfort and not disappoint. Say ‘hello’ to cozy toes and ‘goodbye’ to achy feet this summer!

City Chic

If you’re in love with architecture and want to avoid sand between your toes, a city chic getaway is a great option for you. Picture yourself roaming the cobblestone streets while popping in and out of cute boutiques all day? With that in mind, we highly recommend our Beatnik sandals. Not only does this shoe have a padded ankle strap for added support, there is a 1.75” stacked heel making this sandal right on trend this summer.

Roni from Massachusetts says: “I just purchased these, and couldn’t be happier with the feel and look of this gorgeous sandal. Have always been a huge fan of Naot, but these could become my favorite pair ever. The velcro strap makes the sandal hug my foot like a glove. I expect this to last me many years to come – my Naots never wear out.”

Glamping

In our minds, there is no shame in glamping! Say hello to breathtaking scenery,  yummy s’mores and maybe even a few glasses of wine 😉. While you’re packing for this comfortable camping occasion, don’t forget to bring our fabulous Etera sandals. The Etera is an extremely flexible sandal with a padded backstrap, ideal for a hike or any adventure that awaits you. The sole is also lightweight and durable, making them the perfect packing companion.

Tracy from Washington says: “These sandals are true to Naot’s high standard of comfort and style. I appreciate the removable footbed option as I can insert my orthotics and no one can tell. Usually, wearing orthotics make it difficult to wear sandals but not with this pair.”

Shop the Etera at Instep.

Staycation

For a mini-vacation closer to home, nothing sounds better (and more within the budget) than a relaxing staycation! Gain a new appreciation for your hometown and explore local sites  with one of our favorite sandals this season, the Rianna. Rianna is a fashionable sandal available in 4 attractive colors. Our favorite part about this sandal is the faux buckle hoop and loop closure which allows you to slip these supportive sandals on with ease!

Janet from Florida says: “I must wear footwear with supported soles, arches, and covered heels to avoid foot pain and fatigue, but I refuse to give up style. This sandal fits the bill! It’s stylish, easy to fasten and amazingly comfortable. I can wear them all day, even after I get home from work. Great sandal!”

Shop the Rianna at Shoes on Solano.

Neutral Shoes – A Bare Necessity

In a previous blog, we mentioned the importance of owning a LBS (little black sandal) and how it can practically go with anything in your closet. While this is totally true and a necessary ‘must-have,’ there is another shoe that is just as powerful: a neutral!

Let’s be honest, has anyone ever regretted purchasing a neutral shoe? Not only do neutral heels elongate the legs (bonus points), but neutral flats and slip-ons go with anything, making them a key component to a well-rounded wardrobe. Instagrammer Dearly Bethany executes this look flawlessly with our Naot Gabriela sandals. Her goal is to photograph a new outfit each day, while remaining true to her personal style and aesthetic.

While you’re on the hunt for the perfect nude tones, don’t be afraid to have fun with it! It doesn’t have to be a boring shade of blah-beige. Spice it up with a metallic sheen or sparkly feminine rhinestones. Just make sure you love it, because the key to owning the perfect neutral shoe is rocking it with confidence!
