For SS19 we present our 7th season working with Slovakian footwear company, Novesta.
Novesta's are made in the same factory, with the same equipment as when the company was founded in 1939.
Made from 100% cotton, natural ecru dyed canvas. This is to avoid using any damaging or toxic glues. The natural rubber soles are pressed onto the canvas uppers using the traditional machinery, a process that gives Novesta sneakers their signature chunky midsole with its recognisable track pattern.
New for this season; bold contrast stripes, geometric print and introducing a fresh two-tone sole in our Star Chukkas in Navy and Ecru and Star Hike in Sand.
If you are interested in knowing more about the manufacturing process, you can check out an old journal post from when we visited the Novesta factory.
The SS19 Novesta x UW collection is now available online.
