Fall into Naya Shoes, Ultimate Eco-Chic Footwear

I will start out by saying, I am a flats kinda girl ... give me my sandals or slip-ons and I am in heaven, but when Naya asked me to test out one of their shoes I decided let me be daring and really give these shoes a challenge and ask to try a pair of heels, trust me it was a very hard decision to pick one. This fall they have the most visually pleasing array of eco-chic footwear I have ever seen (flats and heels, teehee). So being gitty as a schoolgirl I picked the Artemis boot coming in a delicious chocolate color. These enticing boots had me grinning from ear to ear, so I couldn't wait for Mister FedEX man to arrive.

This is where I must hold you in suspense, a little bit about Naya shoes ...

Their mission with Naya shoes is to make eco-friendly choices whenever they can, which they have done with materials like bamboo heels, natural or recycled content fabrics, vegetable tanned leather, water-based cements, and outsoles containing natural materials.

I was begging the question why they weren't they vegan as well as eco-friendly, Stephanie Fedler, Naya Shoes, responded "we feel that consumers should have choices. We respect and understand the consumer who wants to wear a product that does not use animal by-products. However, vegan footwear is often made from petroleum based plastics, which are made using chemicals and solvents. These may not breakdown in a landfill. At Naya, we have taken conventional shoe making methods and changed the materials to make them more environmentally friendly. We believe leather is a good option in our shoes, as it is a by-product that would otherwise go into a landfill. Leather lining in our pumps and boots provides breath ability and flexibly for our customers foot health and comfort. Leather is very durable and keeps the same properties over long periods of time. So this amazing quality means our customers will be able to wear the shoes longer."

So they arrived, a sample pair *drool* ... I tried them right away, tearing open the box *giggle*. The shoe was sturdy, but light with very soft and exquisite materials. Construction was extremely high quality, but here was the ultimate test I slipped them on and walked around. Remember, not a girl who wears heels ... *omigosh* it was shocking how comfortable they were and as soft inside as out. Never thought my feet could be in heaven in heels. As you see their designs this fall, as well as past seasons are exquisite, eco-chicness and beyond. Have you ever tried or bought a pair of Naya shoes? If so what do you think?
