Based out of Israel, Naot shoe brand has earned international appreciation for its  comfortable, high-quality, style. Founded by members of Kibbutz Naot Mordechai in 1942, Naot shoes were manufactured in a one-room workshop that would blossom into the internationally renowned shoe brand in the new Millennium.  

Naot’s claim to fame is the simple mantra, “It’s fashionable to walk in comfort.” Any woman who has spent the night limping around in a pair of striking but extremely uncomfortable heels can appreciate that statement. Naot believes that comfort and fashion are not mutually exclusive…so they decided to make shoes to prove it. The concept was to create a footbed from a negative imprint of the foot (think of it like the footprints you leave in the sand) that conforms perfectly to the curvature of the foot.

Naot footbeds are made from a unique shock-absorbing formula of natural cork and latex that alleviates tiredness and pain. To truly embrace the concept of comfort, Naot’s covers all its footbeds in supple suede for both physical and tactile comfort. The emphasis on quality carries all the way through to the uppers, which are made of high-quality Italian leather.

Naot makes shoes for both men and women. The men’s shoes tend to go well with casual attire,

like blue jeans or slacks. This season, the Naot men’s line incorporates the various textures that have hit the fashion industry from suede to velvet.

 

The Chief Oily Brown is a traditional lace-up shoe with brushed suede uppers. The deep heel pocket provides extra support and stability. The classic brown meets the criteria for casual wear.

 

 

The Pilot Suede Grey high-top lace-up boot can be worn loose over skinny jeans, or laced beneath slacks.  The suede leather is sophisticated and workplace worthy.

 

 

The Chief Black Velvet is for the fashion forward man. The high fashion velvet is the right

compliment to any outfit.

 

Naot’s designs are rich in texture. The lady’s Retro Grey Slate heel features a subtle wing-tip pattern in leather on suede (thus the “Retro”), and the low heel is beyond comfortable.  

 

 

 

The Marvel Dark Sienna strappy sandal embodies sophistication.

This heel contours to the shape of the foot. Embellished with crisscrossed straps coupled with the buckle strap, the Marvel is at once classy and current.

 

Naot put its own twist on this season’s popular woven leather look.  The Delux Champagne wedge features an attractive leather pattern that webs across the foot and mimics a woven leather.
