Kgirl Testdrive: Naot 'Be Happy' Shoes

Here’s something I love: cute shoes.

Here’s something else I love: sustainable products.

So here’s something I fell in love with at first sight: my new Naot shoes.

When the good people at Naot contacted me to see if I would like to try out a pair of this season’s new cutie pies, I did not hesitate to say yes. Naot is a company that I have supported, trusted and spent my money on for years, and really? Nothing says, Hello spring! like a new pair of shoes.

So Naot sent me the catalogue, and let me tell you something – if you thought that Naots were only for hippies with orthopedic issues, you have not checked out a Naot catalogue lately.

I mean, look at these:

How about these?

It was a hard decision to make, one punctuated with incredulous cries of, REALLY? I can pick ANY one I want?! Plus a certain number of little squeals, but in the end, I picked a pair that suited me to a T:

Are these not the cutest things you’ve ever seen? And check it – they are called, Be Happy, which I thought was very fitting.

Then I realized that my cute cranberry-hued Be Happys are part of the Naot Green line, which made them even yummier. Here’s a few things I love about my new shoes:

* So cute – just my style, and I bet your style is somewhere in here, too
* The footbed is made of sustainable cork, which is already molding to my otherwise wonky feet
* My feet do not sweat in these shoes
* They are just as comfortable barefoot as they are with socks on
* SO cute (did I already mention that?)

I am really looking forward to wearing these shoes with a sundress, and I’m pretty sure they’ll be making an appearance at BlogHer this year. They have quickly become a staple of my wardrobe, and I thank Naot whole-heartedly for making a product that I can stand behind – er, on.

Seriously, you should walk a mile in my shoes.


  1. Wow. As a fellow shoe freak, may I say that this was a sweet gig? And that I'm glad you have some cute new kicks to kick off summer!

  2. Geez, you're lucky man. I've wanted a pair of Naots for pretty much ever.

  3. lucky you! Those are supercute and so very you.
    I bought my first pair last year, I didn't know about the green line. sounds very me
    Perhaps the good people at Naot will fix the shoes I bought last year ? Is there any info on that catalogue? The shoe store has been very unhelpful.

  4. Those are TOTALLY cute and totally you (and totally me, too). I love that they're 'green', too. Love!

  5. I am never without a pair of red shoes, it is one of my adult rules. Love them.

  6. I love MAry Jane style shoes. Tehse are so cute!

  7. I LOVE those!
    where can I get a pair?
    very cute and yet oh so practical.

  8. Just spoke to the NAOT rep. Who wants to come to Prairie Dogs on Eglinton?
