It doesn’t hurt to look good! 

Thank you for your interest in Nota Bene shoes for women. When we decided to create shoes that would meet women’s needs for comfort, beauty, versatility, and quality, we chose a name that emphasizes our commitment to each of these needs. “Nota bene” means “take note” or “pay attention” in Latin, because from the very first sketch we are thinking about the women wearing the shoes.

Nota Bene shoes combine smart design, fun style, quality construction, and superior materials to create a shoe that is not only beautiful, but feels good enough to walk in all day. In short, Nota Bene is beauty designed for motion.

Our customer is an active woman — she might be a marketing executive making a pitch to clients, a community leader running an event, a consultant traversing her fourth airport of the week, a real-estate agent touring new clients. . . Or, she might be your office mate, the one who enjoys walking to work in the mornings.

Whoever she is, when the Nota Bene woman stands in front of her closet in the morning getting ready for work, she wants a beautiful pair of shoes she trusts will take her everywhere she wants to go that day.  When she packs her suitcase, she wants versatile shoes.  When she shops, she wants to find what she is looking for quickly and reliably. And at the end of the day, she still wants to love her beautiful shoes. 

Please take a moment to read about some of the comfort features, look at some of our styles, and try them on! Wearing is believing — especially at the end of a long day.
