After a year spent mainly indoors, it’s time to break out your summer best and enjoy the warmer weather. That applies to your footwear as well as your clothing, and if comfort and support are high on your list of fashion priorities, you’ll want to take note of one top brand that’s available at Nordstrom.

Naot Footwear is known for its eco-friendly sandals that are handmade in Israel, as well as their ultra-comfortable footbeds that are podiatrist-approved.

If you suffer from any type of foot pain, it’s especially important to find shoes that are designed to provide relief from common causes of foot pain, like tight calf muscles, structural issues of the foot, hammertoes, wearing high heels, and wearing thin flat shoes without support.

Jane E. Andersen, DPM, recommends Naot shoes as a comfortable and stylish summertime option, noting that “they have wonderful arch support and shock absorption.”

“I love Naot shoes, especially those that have support under the metatarsal arch [which] helps take away pressure from the ball of the foot,” she added.

The brand offers styles for both women and men, and we’ve gathered some of this season’s top styles that will have your feet both looking and feeling great.
