Meet the Novel, a dressy slide sandal that offers style and comfort. The Novel has double gore for ease of wear and beautiful stone accents. Naot's anatomic cork & latex footbed is wrapped in leather with a microfiber center to prevent slipping and molds to the shape of the foot with wear. The Avant-garde Collection features a TPR sole with a metal shank. This sole offers the look of a 2" heel without the feel.
