Naot Shoes

naot shoesNaot shoes, sandals, and boots offer customers a unique combination of quality, comfort, and fashion. The footbed provides arch support and massages your feet. Contemporary styles and fabulous colors make Naot shoes a wonderful complement to our fashion clothing collection. Many styles have removable footbeds to accommodate orthodics, making them a stylish alternative to orthopedic shoes.

Our staff is specially trained to fit Naot shoes. They know the specifics of individual styles and the type of foot they’re best suited for. Our boutique hosts frequent Naot special events. Be sure to check our events list to see what’s coming up.

Naot’s story goes back to a one room workshop in 1942. That's when Kibbutz Naot Mordechai in northern Israel founded the kibbutz shoe factory. Now, Naot shoes are worn all over the world. Their mantra of “It’s fashionable to walk in comfort” has caught on. Naot’s unique anatomical footbed is a negative footprint, like we leave in the sand. It is flexible, soft, shock absorbent, supports the heel, and alleviates fatigue and pain. After all, “naot” means “oasis”! Select styles are now available in wide sizing.


Taostaos shoes Shoes

Taos shoes are inspired by the natural beauty and creative culture of the American Southwest. The company believes women shouldn’t have to choose between style and comfort. We agree.

This line of shoes takes its name from the charming town of Taos, New Mexico. The artistic and colorful texture of the town is reflected in the design of Taos shoes. The collection delights and surprises with intriguing style. Rich leathers combine with earthy stones, rugged metal, and playful stitching.

The company cares about the environment. It chooses low-impact manufacturing processes and encourages environmentally-responsible practices. Even the shoe boxes are made from recycled stock and soy-based inks.
