The Forward is a 2" heel with contrasting leathers. This maryjane shoe has a hook & loop closure strap at the instep and a backstrap for stability. Naot's anatomic cork & latex footbed is wrapped in leather with a microfiber center to prevent slipping and molds to the shape of the foot with wear. The Avantgarde Collection features a TPR sole with a metal shank. This sole offers the look of a 2" heel without the feel.
