When Danielle first started at Plum Bottom almost twenty years ago, she often wore 4” heels on busy Saturdays. While Danielle still sets the bar for high fashion, her heel heights have come down a bit. Her choice of a Vaneli slide with a classic gold bit accent and a 2” block heel perfectly balances sophisticated style and ease of wear.

Lynne and Danielle have teamed up on Saturdays for the past two decades. While Lynne is just as stylish as Danielle, you'll want to see what she’s wearing for the most comfortable shoes this season. Lynne has been raving about her Remonte slide sandals, which she has in three colors.

Carmela and I (Carla) have occasionally shown up to work in the same NAOT sandals. This season, NAOT has launched a new boho platform style that we both love! Their famous cork and latex footbed cushions and supports each step, while the trendy platform gives us the extra height we appreciate. While there are several styles to choose from, Carmela loves the cool sage green color for its versatility and unique look.

Similarly, Lauren and I have been appreciating the comfort and sleek retro style of NAOT’s new platform high heel sandals. While I love pairing my tan pair with wide-legged jeans and boho dresses for a 90’s vibe, Lauren wears her black sandals with commando pants and boldly colored tops for a more 80’s-inspired look. Either way, we both agree they are the most comfortable high heel sandals we’ve ever worn!

Vicki chose Pikolinos classic gladiator mid-heel sandals as this season’s most popular pick. These classic, strappy city sandals with a low block heel are gentle on her bunions but always dress up any outfit. Not that Vicki needs help looking good! Her keen fashion sense inspires many of our customers.

Ever the trendsetters, Micki and Jenna both picked sporty 4cccccees sandals as their go-to footwear this spring. Jenna favors bold color blocking, while Micki loves how the neutral-colored sandal coordinates with all her favorite clothes. Both rave about how soft and supportive these cushy sandals feel all day at work—and at play!

While I'm personally loving the NAOT sandals that Lauren and Carmela chose, my favorite sandal of the season is from On Foot. Made in Spain, these double strap platform slide sandals offer both support, and cushioning to make walking a dream! Not only do I wear them to work, they are my favorite sandal to wear while I'm running off to teach yoga or on errands.
