Chic eco-friendly shoes isn’t something one frequently comes across when shopping for footwear. There is a need for such products, and as previously mentioned in FPD’s exclusive interview with Naya designer Kasey Gibbs, “Naya understands that women want eco-friendly footwear that fits into more aspects of their life. Women have a desire to help the environment but they also want to express their femininity and style.” I gladly partook in the Naya shoe experience, compliments of the brand, that brings the eco experience full circle, down to the packaging of the shoes themselves (boxes made with 80% recycled paper pulp).
I selected the lovely Naya Nefertiti Boots in Chestnut, $289 to give the shoes a true test run, and discovered that the comfort, performance, and style was no different than any other pair of shoe in the same price range. I also think that these shoes are the absolute coolest! They go perfectly with leggings, jeggings, or regular jeans, tucked in or scrunched at the bottom. I’ll definitely be back for a second pair of shoes by Naya, and love the fact that finally a brand gets what it means to be eco and fashion forward at the same time.
