Naot shoes and sandals combine the finest materials and the latest technology to bring you an unprecedented walking experience. So, what makes Naot so unique? First, Naot uses carefully selected, condensed natural cork granules, latex and jute to create a highly shock-absorbent insole. The insole, which is covered with a layer of soft spongy suede, reduces stress on the spinal column to make walking and running more comfortable and relaxing. Next, Naot shoes and sandals are almost exclusively made of natural leathers that allow a free flow of air to reach your feet. Materials are cut in special patterns to minimize pressure on the foot and to give a refreshing and unrestrained freedom of movement. Lastly, Naot's carefully crafted soles are widely recognized for their lightweight and flexible features which allow free and natural foot movement, and boast a non-skid bottom. In addition to ensuring a carefree stride, Naot soles provide support for better posture while walking, and furnish the foot with a continuous, comforting massage. Nearly eight out of ten Americans experience some sort of foot problem during their lives. While these problems vary in degree and seriousness, the more disturbing statistic shows that four out of ten people are convinced that foot pain is the inevitable result of wearing stylish shoes! Not so. Naot knows that both comfort and fashion are essential to all footwear. To that end, Naot is dedicated to providing customers with expertly made shoes and sandals, crafted for the optimum in support, comfort, durability and style. Designed in the latest fashions, Naot footwear makes walking and running a pleasurable, healthful, and carefree experience.
