When the members of Kibbutz Naot Mordechai founded the kibbutz shoe factory in 1942, no one imagined that in sixty-five years’ time their shoes would be worn all over the world.
The idea that “it’s fashionable to walk in comfort” has quickly conquered the world, and with it, Naot has gained a loyal customer following, especially in Canada. Each year we develop a new and varied collection of comfortable shoes, clogs and boots made of high quality natural substances from Europe’s finest manufacturers of cork, and latex (natural rubber) as well as superior Italian leathers.
Corinne Lissoos, President of Naot Canada, is the top enthusiast for the super comfortable and casual Naot footwear line. Her enthusiasm began when she first learned of Naot shoes from her husband, who, while they were living in Israel purchased, and loved, his first pair of Naot’s.
After moving to Canada, Corinne launched Naot Canada. Working from her garage and displaying shoes in only two Toronto- area health food stores, Corinne sold 100 pairs of shoes in the summer of 1989.
Since then, Naot Canada has become as famous for its testimonials and devotees as for its comfort. Shoes are sold in various stores across Canada in Ontario, British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, the Maritimes and the Northwest Territories. Naot Canada stores may also be found in Montreal, Toronto and now Calgary.
