Naturalizer has a LARA shoe!!! (See what else they have)

Naturalizer Lara Shoe

It’s true! So while in St. Louis, the lovely people at Alive Magazine took us to the Naturalizer shoe store in the Galleria mall, where we met with the brand representatives and learned about the three lines carried in the store, BZEES, NAYA and of course Naturalizer. And we got to pick a pair! Go figure the ones I end up with are named LARA ($99, on sale for $69.99)… I like to think it was named after me or at the very least we were meant to be!

Admittedly, these are my first pair from Naturalizer. Prior to the event I was moderately familiar with them, however I had no idea about the other brands they carried.


So here’s the lowdown, Naturalizer is known for their comfort everyday shoes. Their customer likes trends but isn’t looking for anything too complicated or tricky. For this season they had a lot of styles inspired by Tailored Times (menswear), Weekend Out (outdoor, country living) and the Less is More trend, for the dressier girl who wants simplified, clean silhouettes but appreciates the details like fun linings.

Ahem, can you see the menswear inspiration in the “Lara” shoe (which also comes in brown) and “Kapture” shoe (which I’m also a fan of!)



They additionally partnered with David Bromstad again for fall which was all about animal prints. (Check the collection out HERE).


The brand also launched, Naya which is one of their newer brand that’s all about comfort. Their Over the knee boot style has been the seasons big seller in a collection that also includes a medley of fun boots that have everything from fun fury linings you can hide or expose to hidden wedges to relaxed fits you can tuck your jeans into.

Lastly, there’s BZEES which are the more relaxed, lightweight shoes. The collection isn’t athletic as much as for running errands all day to taking out the dog.
