The Naot shoes have arrived and...

My feet are positively SINGING with comfort!!'

Following my various posts on foot woes, the first pair of shoes I ordered were the Naot Lan in black. (I'm on my phone so can't link to my previous thread)

Here are a couple of quick pics taken as soon as I got home with what I wore today and then with my aviator troisers just as a pants example - I don't wear these pants rolled but wanted to give you an idea of how the shoes would look with cropped pants.

I know these won't be to everyone's liking but I can carry a chunky shoe (right Angie?) and I actually like the geeky look of these.

And then there's the comfort. Without a doubt 11 out of 10! So these are a huge KEEP for me and I promise to make them look stylish :)

Thanks Sharan for your info on these shoes. Flat black shoes - crossed off the list. Onto the next item...

    Wow, good job! They look great! That's so crazy! What an unexpectedly happy ending!

  • columbine(erin) replied 5 years ago

    I like the wide crossed ankle straps. They look good on you.

  • Angie replied 5 years ago

    LOVE. Wooohooooo. 

    I think Sharan has a pair in taupe. 

  • jackiec replied 5 years ago

    SO happy for you!

  • Firecracker replied 5 years ago

    I'm so happy for you, Shannon! They look great with all these styles. I especially like them with the cropped pants. The Naot fan club scores a win!

  • Angie replied 5 years ago

    Sharan and Shannon, can you please link to this style online - I can't find it. 

    YES, Shannon. They look killer, and you wear chunky shoes with the best of them. Wave to Sharan. 

  • Susie replied 5 years ago

    I love them on you! It wouldn't usually be my first choice so I am surprised to say that I especially like them with the cropped pants.

  • Caro in Oz replied 5 years ago

    Happy Feet. Yay Firecracker!!

  • Transcona Shannon replied 5 years ago

    Angie - it was Sharan's fab outfits with the taupe pair that made me give these a bash. Here'a link to the taupe ones available through Amazon

    And for the Canadian Fabbers, they are available in both the taupe and the black leather from Canadian Footwear

    I'm so glad you can feel my happiness over these shoes and support my "chunky choice" - lol! Even hubby thought they were kinda cool :)

    Gorgeous Shannon! Love them with pants or skirts.

    I had a pair of sandals with crisscross stretchy straps like that, but they made my feet swell distal to the straps (like, in was the shoes, not me). Is that an issue with these?

  • Sara L. replied 5 years ago

    Great shoes!  I'm so glad they're comfortable and will work for you.

  • Style Fan replied 5 years ago

    I am a big fan of chunky shoes.  They look great on you.  Awesome actually.

  • amiable replied 5 years ago

    Oh - they are fabulous on you!  I have a pair of oxfords on my list, but these might have to preempt them....

  • shevia replied 5 years ago

    These are not my image of Naot's at all! Couldn't be better for you Shannon! 

  • Joy replied 5 years ago

    You and Sharan are chunky shoe royalty. You both make them look so stylish. I'm glad to hear that they are comfortable. They remind me of the EF Allot's, so I will be taking notes on how to wear this style shoe.

  • Firecracker replied 5 years ago

    Here's my find. . .

    They're not listed on the Naot site, and since I saw them in a store on sale and found them on, I think they are last season's or last year's style. They are made on the Aura last, same as the Kedma.

  • Suz replied 5 years ago

    They look terrific, Shannon. The crossover strap is magically flattering on you. I think they'd be a superb travel shoe, too. What a good purchase! 

  • lyn67 replied 5 years ago

    I knew these will make you sing-happy dance!:-) Their crossed upper elastic straps are a bit simillar like those on your silver sandals, from last year-which I always loved on your feet!!

  • Astrid replied 5 years ago

    WOW! Those look fantastic, Shannon. And they seem to make your feet happy, so great find.

  • replied 5 years ago

    Oh, very nice! So glad you've found 'your' shoe!

  • Transcona Shannon replied 5 years ago

    L'Abeille - oh I hope these don't cause any sort of swelling...I'm wearing the shoes today at work all day so will know soon enough if there are going to be any problems.

    Suz - yes, I'm thinking these will be perfect shoes for traveling. And as I get a better sense of how comfy they are through wearing them, I may realize these can double as excellent all day walking shoes for tours, etc.

    Thank you all so much for indulging me this past week about my shoe issues and allowing me to show you my first success. This is my third pair of Naots now (I have the gunmetal Mary Jane pumps and a pair of mid calf winter boots) and I would have to say that the brand is now going to be my #1 "go to" brand for footwear.
