“I needed at least one good pair [of sandals] that I could really rely on for lake trips, walking, family fun and everything in between. WELP, I FOUND IT and it just happened to work out perfectly. I had the opportunity to work with Zappos on Naot shoes so I got the sandals I chose, here, and I fell in love. Literally – in love so much that I bought a second pair.” – Jess, Positively Oakes

A Naot Wedding

Fall wedding season is officially upon us and for many blushing brides-to-be, now is the time to finalize all of the last minute details. From final guest lists to wedding songs, there is still much to be done! One of the most important decisions each bride and groom will make, however, is which shoes they’ll choose for their special day.

Each bride and groom needs a pair of shoes that can carry them from the aisle to the dance floor with comfort and ease, all without sacrificing style. At Naot, we love hearing that our shoes can come to the rescue and be a part of a couple’s big day! Check out one Naot “love story” below.

Taryn and Bryan

For their September nuptials, both Taryn and Bryan knew that wearing their favorite pairs of Naots was a no-brainer. For all-day comfort and style (and an outdoor ceremony), Taryn chose to wear the Mystery shoes in silver.

This 2.75 inch wedge with rhinestone accents down the front strap provided this bride with the perfect details to complete her look. The padded hook-and-loop closure and padded straps made sure she was comfortable whether she was outside on the grass for photos, or bouncing around on the dance floor.

“I could not believe how comfortable they were. My feet didn’t ache even for a second. I was thrilled,” Taryn said of her Mystery wedges.

Taryn’s husband, Bryan, chose to celebrate his big day in a pair of our Audience oxfords. This style has a padded heel cup & tongue and the footbed molds to the foot to ensure all-day comfort. The maple brown leather finish of the shoe helped to accent all of the other fine details of this couple’s special day!

Just ask Bryan– they really were the perfect shoes for him to “tie the knot” in.
