“It’s fashionable to walk in comfort.”
This tagline from a leading manufacturer in easy-to-walk-in shoes started out as a simple statement that is now conquering the world. Our society is becoming increasingly aware that being comfort-conscious with literally everything we own and wear is no longer a privilege, but a necessity, and for many good reasons.
Naot shoes, shoes built on the foundations of practicality, style and comfort, ensure the delivery of stylish and exceptionally comfortable footwear due to the high-quality raw materials and advanced design of every shoe.
Because compromising comfort over style is never the case for this brand.
History of Naot Shoes
The Teva Naot Shoe Company was founded in 1942 in the Upper Galilee of Israel, Kibbutz Naot Mordechai, by members of the Kibbutz Naot Mordechai shoe factory. This one-room workshop that made simple work shoes and sandals expanded into an international business and has become one of Israel’s leading manufacturers and exporter of shoes.
Naot was transformed in the 1980s by Ami Bar-Nahor, into a stylish international brand of comfort footwear. Bar-Nahor wanted to turn the knowledge he gained from Naot to create women’s shoes that were both comfortable and dressy; a notion that may not seem profound today, but at the time, was a groundbreaking idea.
When walking to and from work, the majority of working women were pairing their skirts and blouses with sneakers, while schlepping their “good shoes” in their totes. This seemed unnecessary and quite silly to the pioneer behind the quintessential shoe.
Bar-Nahor’s original concept for “dressy comfort” footwear has become an industry standard, copied across the globe by hundreds of other shoe manufacturers, even including high-end designers.
Seventy years later, Naot’s loyal customer continues to broaden, giving you a brand new collection of comfortable, stylish shoes every season. Naot now manufactures a wide variety of footwear for men and women, including sandals, sneakers, flats, heels, wedges, clogs and boots.
What Makes Naot Shoes So Dang Comfortable?
How many times have you been out shopping to hear the person next to you exclaim, “If they aren’t comfortable, I’m not getting them!” Probably a lot of times, because everyone is in search of practical, nice looking shoes that they can wear on a typical 8-10 hour workday without sacrificing comfort.
The Naot brand has a unique anatomical footbed which makes each style of shoe ridiculously comfortable and incredibly supportive. The engineered insoles are designed to replicate the shape of the foot, just like the footprint we leave when walking in the sand. The footbeds are flexible, soft and shock absorbent, made of natural cork and latex, and covered in a layer of suede, supporting the heel and alleviating pain.
The production process of Naot manufacturing uses an innovative technology designed to maintain foot health, using only the highest quality raw materials it can find. All Naot shoes are made from natural, soft and airy Italian leather, combined with superior standards of modern design.
Offering solutions and promising trust, the superbly-crafted products have been and continue to be an excellent solution to the never-ending need for comfortable and fashionable footwear.
