Naot 'Palace' Sandal
Not very attractive and too narrow. I will be returning them. Wanted to try NAOT because I had heard they were very comfortable.
Jewel of a Style
Truly admire the simplicity of this shoe; however, purchased a size down due to it being a bit wide. In conclusion, for a medium to narrow width a size down may be necessary.
Absolutely love, love, love the shoe! Not only is it stylish and subtle, but also extremely comfortable. On the first day out, I walked for about 8 hours in them and felt I could walk another 8 hours.
Love These Shoes!
In desperation for comfy walking shoes while on vacation a few years ago, I bought some black Naot sandals. They have been, without question, the most comfortable shoes I've ever owned. Like walking on marshmallows. And they're still in perfect condition. I love them so much that I decided to buy a similar pair in a lighter color. Based on some of the reviews, I ordered the European size 39 (I normally wear size 7.5 - 8 medium), even though my other Naots are size 38 and fit like a glove. I'm glad I did, because the straps on these shoes seem to run a smidge smaller.
They look great with any style -- skirts or pants. And if you're looking for comfy walking shoes, these are perfect. And they're much more attractive than the Dansko brand. (The Dansko shoes are very comfy, but they're always so clunky looking and, well, downright ugly.) So, if you want both comfort and style, these are a better bet.
