Let it snow! That's what we say if it means we get to pull on stylish boots. I"m all about cozy chic fashions, winter is my season. And I'm always on the hunt for stylish pieces that can help me embrace the cold. Naot boots help me play in the snow. They're cute, but more importantly, they have a clever grip that gives women serious traction.
Naot Invests in Construction and Style
The Naot company started in 1942 in an Israeli kibbutz shoe factory. The brand started with sandals with the theory that that comfort comes first. In order to make this happen, they studied the footbed. Since they know beaches and sand, Naot designed the footbed to mimic a footprint left in the sand. The footbed is made from natural cork and latex with Italian leather uppers.
It's All About the Footbed
Since 1942 the company has grown a ton. Naot is now Israel's leading manufacturer and exporter of footwear. The shoes are still handmade in Israel with the same care paid to construction. And now they've added a winter collection of boots. Since I'm a bit of a snow queen, I just had to try them.
Naot Winter OC Grip System
These cozy boots with faux fur trim are a great style accent for me. I paired them with one of my favorite wraps and green corduroys. In winter, these are the outfits I live in -- layers that can be dressed up or down and that can keep me warm. When it comes to boots, I blanch at clunkiness. The Naot Vail boot is a light nimble boot that looks good. I especially like the way my heel felt nestled into the boot. I attest to the comfort: These are shoes that can stand up to my longest winter walks.
While foot comfort counts for a great deal, in the winter I also need traction. The OC Grip System helps keep my foot secure on slippery snow and ice. There's a key included that activates the steel studs that are embedded in the sole.
