Hiking Season is Upon Us!

Warmer weather means that hiking season is officially here!

While hiking can be a fun and exciting way to explore breathtaking landscapes, there may be a lot of challenges along the way. From steep hills to rocky terrain, to unexpected rivers and streams, you need a shoe that can keep up with whatever challenge nature throws your way. This is where the our new line of adventure sandals come in– SOURCE by NAOT was created with adventurers like you in mind!

Below we’ve compiled a list of three must-see hiking trails across the United States and matched them with a pair of SOURCE by NAOT sandals! No matter where your travels may take you this summer, we’ve got shoes that can keep up with all of your outdoor adventures!

There’s no limit to what you can see and do at Yellowstone National Park! Hailed as the first national park in the country, Yellowstone spreads across three different states in the northwest. In addition to hiking the park’s many trails, you can also observe wildlife, fish, camp and go rafting.


With all the different outdoor adventures available at Yellowstone, you need a shoe equipped for every terrain! Our Harbor sandals for men & women feature a triple layer padded fast-dry strapping system, so you never have to worry about getting your feet wet.

Jacks River extends over 16 miles, following its namesake river. After nine miles, the trail turns from a rocky terrain to a lush waterfall, dubbed Jacks River Falls. If water adventures are your favorite part of summer, then this trail is a must-see!

With all of the rivers and falls, you need a shoe that can withstand getting wet and that dries quickly. The women’s Shore & men’s Retreat are great water shoes that are slip-resistant and feature our patented Onestrap tug system for a secure fit for all-day wear.
