Naot 'Rachel' Sandal
Runs shorter than size
I own 5 other pairs of Naots, which as a brand runs about 1/2 size smaller than normal size. I fell in love with the Rachel and purchased the size 42, which is noted as size 11. While I wear a size 10 1/2, the size 11 Rachel fit more like a size 10 and was much narrower than other style Naots. I kept the sandals hoping to make them work, but they have remained uncomfortable and I don't wear them often.
Today was my first day wearing these shoes and I love them. My doctor recommended this brand of shoe because I have a back injury and I couldn't be happier. The shoes are very comfortable and provide enough support for my lower back while standing. In US shoes, I wear a size 10 but had to go up to a size 11 in these shoes because they usually run a size smaller. The size 11 is a perfect fit. I think I might by another pair!
I bought these sandals in March 2011 from a friend recommending them. I wear them most everyday and they are the most comfortable sandals I have ever owned! I have them in the Metal color and they go with everything. I am going to order another pair in black patent. You will not be disappointed if you buy these sandals.
MOST COMFORTABLE SHOE IN MY COLLECTION!!
Friends had recommended Naot sandals to me as being very comfortable. I had my doubts due to the price and the unattractiveness of many Naots. However, not only is this sandal relatively cute...IT IS WONDERFULLY COMFORTABLE!! It is more comfortable than going barefoot because it holds your foot softly and surrounds it with padded comfort. Walked throughout Manhattan and never realized I had shoes on if you know what I mean. Do order one full size up though. HEAVENLY!!
