Naya is a rather new brand of Brown Shoe Company, Inc., introduced to Feelgood Style a year ago, and born from the belief that shoes should be beautiful on your feet, soft on your step, and gentle on the environment.
You can buy Naya shoes online at sites like Amazon and in more than 60 independent and domestic specialty stores. Also find the brand throughout Asia, Australia, Canada, Germany, Greece, Japan, and the United Arab Emirates. It’s wonderful to watch an ethical brand take off like this.
