Our uniquely engineered insoles are a blend of natural latex and cork that are designed to replicate the shape of the foot, just like the footprint we leave when walking in the sand. We invite you to delve into our extensive collection of comfortable and fashionable footwear. Your feet work too hard – allow them to soak for a while in the soothing comfort of your favorite pair of Naots.

Naot is manufactured at Kibbutz Naot Mordechai in Northern Israel.

In the U.S. we pronounce Naot as Nay-Oat.

You can purchase Naot Footwear on www.Naot.com or by visiting a local Authorized Naot Retailer. If you need help finding a local Authorized Naot Retailer please call our Naot Hotline at 1-800-NAOT-USA (1-800-626-8872).

Here are the Naot Footwear size conversions:

All Naot Footwear leather, suede and nubuck materials are treated in the tanning process for stain and water protection. This is not a permeate process and it is recommended that you treat your new footwear with a non-silicone based water and stain protector spray such as Naot Weather Resist. Please test on an area that is not as visible before you spray the entire item.

Even in a perfect world leather shoes will sometimes get scuffed in the normal wearing process. If this does happen we recommend using a quality product that will enhance and bring back the natural color of the leather such as Naot Leather Restore. Remember to test on a small area that is not as visible before you polish the entire shoe.

The idea of a removable footbed is that you can either remove the footbed and insert a custom orthotic or you can eventually replace the current footbed with a new Naot Footbed when it starts to wear out extending the life of your footwear.

You can purchase Replacement Footbeds here or by visiting a local Authorized Naot Retailer. If you need help finding a local Authorized Naot Retailer please call our Naot Hotline at 1-800-NAOT-USA (1-800-626-8872).

To determine what Footbed your Naot Footwear requires we will need to know what style you have or what collection your footwear is in.

If you need help figuring this out please call our Naot Hotline at 1-800-NAOT-USA (1-800-626-8872) & we will be more than happy to help you out!

To clean the suede on the cork footbed we recommend using a Naot Suede Brush or a light grade sandpaper to lightly sand down the footbed. If your footbed has stains aside from the dark color that comes from the natural oils in your foot you can use a very lightly damp sponge but do not get the footbed soaked because it may ruin the footbed. If the footbeds do get wet, do not dry them in direct heat because it could cause the cork to crumble. Please try these methods on a small portion of the footbed before you clean the entire footbed.

We are just the wholesale distributor of Naot Footwear in the United States and cannot accept returns/exchanges directly. All returns/exchanges need to be done through the retail store that the shoes were purchased from. If you feel that there is a manufacturer’s defect on your Naot Footwear please contact the retail store that you purchased the shoes from to discuss a possible return/exchange.

Foot odor is a common nuisance especially in the hot summer weather when your feet sweat. We recommend treating your footwear with Naot Sandal Renew as needed for fast acting relief.

Squeaky soles usually happen due to one of the following reasons, either air is getting caught underneath the removable footbed or there is an air bubble in the sole.
If your shoe has a removable footbed please try removing the footbed & walking around a bit to see if the sole still squeaks without the footbed in. If the sole still squeaks it could be an air bubble in the sole & you should contact the retail store that you purchased the shoes from. If the squeaking stops when you remove the footbed then it is probably just air getting caught underneath the footbed. In this case we recommend a few home remedies. You should remove the footbed and put powder, Vaseline (only a small amount or it could get messy) or a thick paper cutout (i.e. paper bag) underneath the footbed, place the footbed back in the shoe and the air should be blocked & the squeaking should stop.
If your shoe does not have a removable footbed then the issue could be an air bubble in the sole & you should contact the retail store that you purchased the shoes from.

The orange color on your feet is simply caused from the non-toxic dye in the suede that covers Naot’s cork/latex footbed. The orange comes off more when the foot sweats, especially in the hot summer months. You can treat the footbed with a non-silicone based water resistant spray such as Naot Weather Resist which will help keep the color from getting on your foot.

All Naot Footbeds are made from a blend of cork & latex. Although the footbeds are covered in suede it is not recommended that you wear Naot Footwear if you have an allergy to latex as it cannot be confirmed which pieces have come in contact with the latex during production.
