Wolky and Naot are Top Picks for Fall Travel Footwear

October 19, 2011 (PRLEAP.COM) Business News
The Pedestrian Shops and comfortableshoes.com are making it easier for women to shop for travel shoes with its new Fall 2011 selection of Wolky and Naot brand footwear. The new collections feature a wide variety of cute and comfortable shoes that should make travel footwear shopping a breeze for any traveler.

Selecting shoes to travel with can be difficult. Luggage space restrictions often mean that one or two pairs of shoes must work for one's entire trip. "Travel shoes must multitask," explains Lauren Polk, Vice President of the Pedestrian Shops and comfortableshoes.com. "They need to be neutral in color to go with any outfit, comfortable for long days on your feet, and versatile enough for day or evening wear."

Luckily, the Pedestrian Shops have put together an extensive selection of travel shoes that easily meet the demands of today's modern traveler. Travelers' favorites include the Wolky Strap Cloggy, Wolky Passion, Naot Matai, and the Naot Otago.

Wolky is a Dutch comfort line, which focuses on footwear designed for walking. The Wolky Strap Cloggy style is a closed toe clog with a partially open back. The back has a fixed, padded strap making it comfortable year-round. It features a thick polyurethane outsole with a rocker bottom and a memory foam footbed that make it a great style for all day wear. It also has an adjustable Velcro® instep strap which accommodates varied foot types and makes it easy to put on and take off for airport travel. The strap cloggy comes in a variety of neutral colors so it can easily match all the outfits in your suitcase.

The Wolky Passion is another great travel option. This stylish comfort shoe features a soft nappa leather upper, adjustable crisscross mary jane strap, and a lightweight and flexible polyurethane outsole. This attractive shoe looks great seeing the sights during the day and then easily dresses up for dinner.

Naot footwear hails from Israel. The majority of their products feature suede lined cork and latex footbeds that slowly mold to the form of your foot for increasing comfort. The Naot Matai is a closed toe mary jane with a soft leather and suede upper and the toe features a whimsical monochromatic swirl design. This style also has a padded heel cup, a padded technical lining in the forefront, and a 1 inch polyurethane outsole for all day comfort. The Naot Otago is a similar style on the same comfortable cork footbed. This full coverage style features an elastic vamp so it easily slips on an off, perfect for travel!

Visit one of the Pedestrian Shops' two Boulder, CO stores or comfortableshoes.com to see these styles and many more that will fit your travel footwear needs. The Pedestrian Shops' in-store selection also includes their exclusive 'Walkwear,' 'Walkware,' and 'Walkwhere' section. There you'll find wearable walk goods (shoes, socks, hats, gloves…), hardware for walking (pedometers, walking sticks…), and information about where to walk (maps, books, trail guides).

The Pedestrian Shops began doing business shortly after the first Earth Day in 1970. Its first shop was located in a repurposed 1950s bookmobile. Its first bricks and mortar location was opened in 1971 in downtown Boulder, Colorado. Its humble roots are memorable for the story of its first store fixtures, carved from tree trunks; their first months of use required daily spraying for ants. Today, 40 years later, The Pedestrian has become widely regarded as one of the world's leading retailers of comfortable shoes, operating two Boulder, CO stores and a website, www.comfortbleshoes.com.
