I first discovered El Naturalista when visiting a friend in Eugene. I slipped on her shoes to head out to the car, and I fell in love!
When I headed to Italy last summer, I knew El Naturalista was the right choice for my Tuscan adventures. I needed comfortable shoes for walking those streets where ancient footprints are everywhere, and since it was Italy, fashion was important too.
It takes the sole of a shoe 1,000 years to fully decompose. At Planet Shoes, we don’t take this lightly. We offer many brands with eco-friendly shoes to help you shrink your environmental footprint and stay on top of the latest shoe fashions. As technology and design improve, more and more of our brands are taking the environment into consideration as they make their shoes. This can range from using recycled packaging to creating sandals that will compost in 20 years. However they fit in your lifestyle, the shoes in this shop all include elements that help reduce our environmental impact.
Of course, El Naturalista shoes are included in this eco shop!
Planet Shoe sent us a pair El Naturalista Iggdrasil N096 Clogs to try.
Standing for “The Tree of Life” in Nordic mythology, the El Naturalista Iggdrasil N096 is a classic style in its original clog version, rooted at the center of the El Naturalista universe. Set in a pull-grain leather upper with gorgeous contrast stitching detail, the upper of this women’s clog is treated with river stones to temper the hide naturally, which gives it an attractive rustic look but is softened until optimal comfort is reached. The recycled polyurethane footbed is anatomically-correct for lasting comfort, you’ll never want to take these El Naturalista clogs off.
I agree, I never want to take these clogs off! They are so comfortable and perfect with any outfit. Pants or skirts, these styley clogs keep your arches supported with a proper footbed for any activity. From dancing to walking, these El Naturalistas are one of my favorite pairs of shoes! Did I mention I love spirals? They come in many delightful colors too!
One thing I love about Planet Shoes is that they do not overpackage their products. I get so annoyed when you order shoes online and they come in a gigantic box full packaging, no matter how “green” that stuff is. Shoes are durable and are already in a cardboard shoe box. They don’t need a whole lot of protection during shipping.
Thank you Planet Shoes and El Naturalista!
