Why should women care about wearing Naya shoes?

As mothers, grandmothers and sisters we are the caretakers of our future generations. The earth is not going to remain the way it is unless we make an effort to renew it. Wearing Naya shoes is just one step we can take to leave a softer footprint on our earth.

What are the most important things you want women to know about Naya shoes?

Naya was born from the belief that shoes should be beautiful on your feet, soft on your step and gentle on the environment.

Why is Naya’s shoe line important?

Our society is becoming more conscious about how we are affecting our environment. Much of what we throw away will be in landfills forever, leaking harmful chemicals into the earth.

What are some ways in your life that you have committed to being earth-friendly?

Naya Boots

Favorite Naya Style:

I love the Tova for spring and plan on getting it in every color. This sandal embodies the natural and relaxed attitude of the Naya brand. It’s on a two inch heel, which is great when I’m on my feet all day. The full grain leather adds premium comfort. I know I can wear it all day long, be comfortable and look fantastic.

Naya is the expression of our commitment to beauty, comfort and renewing the well-being of our natural environment. This commitment starts with all of us—and it starts now. The creation of each Naya shoe begins with a feminine design with rich, vibrant colors and creative details. From there we infuse each style with exceptional comfort, using soft leather linings and layers of premium cushioning. Throughout the design process, we choose natural and earth-friendly materials whenever possible. Naya styles include:

• Vegetable-tanned leathers and linings

• Natural or recycled content fabrics

• Heels made from bamboo

• Footbeds containing natural cork

• Outsoles containing natural materials

• Water-based cements

• Shoe boxes made with 80 percent recycled paper pulp, soy-based inks and water-based glue

• Reusable shoe bags and shoe forms made with recycled PET

Naya was born from the belief that shoes should be beautiful on your feet, soft on your step and gentle on the environment. Because you should never have to choose between what looks good, what feels good and what is good for you and for the earth. Naya means renewal and this inspires and guides us in everything we do to create shoes that:

* Renew your spirit with expressive, feminine style

* Renew your body with exceptionally soft comfort

* Renew the earth with environmentally-thoughtful designs

Each Naya shoe starts with a distinctly feminine design enhanced with rich, vibrant colors and unique, creative details. We infuse each style with pure comfort using soft leathers, breathable leather linings and layers of premium cushioning. And because preserving our planet is important to all of us, whenever possible we choose materials that reduce environmental impact. www.nayashoes.com
