Are you looking for sneakers that are different from all the others? Then Slovakian footwear brand Novesta is right up your alley. This season they showcase a collection of classic original retro sneakers. Novesta is dedicated to manufacturing shoes according to the highest environmental standards. That’s why they use materials such as natural rubber and 100% cotton and linen.
Handmade in the same factory, and with the same equipment, as they were back in 1939 when shoemaker Antonin Bata opened his first company, these sneakers have a certain charm missing from most things these days. The natural rubber sole is pressed by a high-pressure machine onto the canvas body and hand-trimmed afterwards. This process results in tire marks around the outsole – Novesta’s trademark look that truly confirms the quality of the shoes. The men's Star Dribble Classic is presented in a low-cut silhouette with a canvas upper and features chrome eyelet lacing, rubber shell toe and sits upon an extremely comfortable vulcanised rubber midsole. What’s not to like? Get yourself a pair of these ecological sneakers!
Novesta was created in the early 1930's and although a lot has changed over the years one thing has remained the same: all Novesta shoes are handmade in their factory in Partizánske, Slovakia. Their unique sneakers combine innovative, new age design with timeless, old school sophistication. Keeping an eye on the environment they work exclusively with natural rubber and 100% cotton and linen fabrics.
