About Us

In 1927, during a decade of tremendous cultural shifts and progressive thinking, Caleres, Inc. launched a women’s footwear line with the radical idea of combining current fashion with comfort features. Naturalizer became one of the first shoe brands that women could turn to for feminine style they coveted and comfort they thought was impossible to attain. The recent suffrage movement had provided women with new-found freedoms and, as hemlines became shorter and shoes became the focus of fashion, Naturalizer symbolized what modern women had achieved. Naturalizer honors the brand’s original promise to deliver feminine, stylish, comfortable shoes in a manner that is relevant to the busy lifestyle of today’s woman.

With rich leathers, soft suedes and unique details, Naturalizer footwear captures the essence of modern femininity…whether that means taking a leisurely walk in velvet ballet flats, or running a board meeting in black leather pumps.

Backed by research from our “Style & Trend” experts, the Naturalizer line interprets the latest trends in ways our customers want to wear them. Women will see the influence of current fashion, blended with the enduring style they’ve come to expect from Naturalizer.

Naturalizer was dubbed “the shoe with the beautiful fit” by advertising guru Leo Burnett in the 1940s. Today’s Naturalizer shoes still have a beautiful fit, and are comfortable enough to wear throughout the day.

Naturalizer’s fresh, unpretentious designs are a smooth fit with your wardrobe, your life and your own unique style. Naturalizer. We promise style that makes you look good and feel good – always.
