Ditch the rubber flip flops and pick up a more stylish option this summer! Naya Shoes has a tightly edited selection of summer footwear, but when heading to the beach and especially on vacation, combine comfort, quality, and style with the Naya Helena style ($120). A cushioned insole and rubber outsole guarantees a comfortable walk from the dunes to the boardwalk, and don’t forget to top off your “soaking up the rays” look with a stylish yet all-important head protector, such as this BCBGeneration Striped Fedora, $32 and a plush, vibrant option for drying off, like this Nautica Cabana Beach Towel. Refreshing and updating your beach basics is a great way to get ready for, and look forward to, long summer days (hopefully) ahead!

Let’s all start spring on the right foot with these great footwear options. With no shortage of style or comfort, your feet are bound to feel renewed with the season.
Franco Sarto loves women and we love him in return. For Spring 2012, the wedge is the focus in all of its sexy comfort. Cute glitter espadrilles are sure to ground any outfit, while patent, braid detail, and bow details ensure you’re “on trend but not trendy.” Priced from $69-$120, it’s clear Sarto understands both our passion for shoes and our budget.
Carlos by Carlos Santana
If you’re looking for a statement shoe, Carlos by Carlos Santana is your guy. Each design is meant so as to craft your outfit around your shoes. Think Miami Swim Week: bright, Latin-inspired hues! Hip and hot, these shoes give you the impulse to immediately tango, salsa, and cha cha cha. You’ve been forewarned…

Dr. Scholl’s Shoes
Dr. Scholl’s Shoes has always been a lifestyle brand, but a recent brand revitalization endorses its modernity. Today’s designs represent a youthful spirit while the flexible, lightweight “free step” technology encourages natural motion, and super cushioned “memory fit” insoles reduce shock impact. The original exercise sandal icon, Dr. Scholl’s Shoes now offers an entire line of take-you-anywhere classic styles.
Naturalizer has one goal: to design shoes that look as good as they feel. Naturalizer continues its focus on breathability, flexibility, lightness, softness, and balance for spring, maintained via styles that will transition you from the office to soccer games to neighborhood soirees. We love cushioning that fits any lifestyle and think you will too!
We can always admire a brand that gives back to the earth. This time around at Naya Shoes, the “Zoe” stole the show, being the brand’s first shoe retailing under $100. At $89, this sandal leaves a softer footprint on the earth and your wallet. It’s bold, bright, functional and affordable with soft leather, a whimsical floral footbed design, and natural cork.

Naya shoes are pretty fabulous — not only are they comfortable and certainly stylish, but they really really have thought about how to make a great eco-friendly shoe. Compliments of Naya, I reviewed my second pair of shoes from the brand, the Naya Fandanga in Black Leaf, $150, and am thrilled to confirm that they exceed all expectations. Beyond the cushy and comfy inside (which includes an arch support), these sturdy slingbacks have a solid heel, made of bamboo, with a recycled cork outsole and vegetable-tanned leather.
This style reminds me of a vintage pair of Bruno Magli heels I possess, and the Fandangas look great with a pantsuit as well as a flirty silk summer dress. Now, if only the summer would come, I could throw off the tights and show off my pedicure!
