Now two footwear brands from that country are bringing a collection of sport sandals for men and women to the U.S. market.
Through a joint venture with the Source sandal label, iconic brand Naot has unveiled a spring ’18 series of water-friendly outdoor styles featuring a patented X-Strap system with six anchoring points to hold the foot in place. Uppers are made of waterproof webbing, while the vulcanized rubber outsoles offer cushioning and grip. A Grunge-Guard is integrated in the sole to keep feet cool and odor-free.
The collection, produced exclusively in Israel, comes with a Green Dot feature in the sole — if still present within two years from the date of sale, a defective sandal can be returned with proof of purchase for an exchange. The line, retailing from $60 to $125, will arrive this month in a range of outdoor and comfort retailers.
The Source brand was founded in 1990 by Yoki Gill and Daniel Benoziliyo, as a single sewing-machine operation in an apartment. Today, it is a worldwide company employing more than 250 people in Tirat Carmel, Israel.
