The Universal Works Ltd. Store is currently within the walls of Small in the Haut Marais district of Paris until Christmas Eve, and each week we’re launching a special product for the store.
Last week we launched the Paris edition Novesta Star Master, available exclusively from the Ltd. Store, and two of our Parisian stockists Royal Cheese, and V Barber & Shop.
The shoes were made in Slovakia, produced using Novesta’s environmentally friendly manufacturing process. Novesta uses heat and pressure to bind the felt uppers to the rubber sole which avoids the use of toxic glues and chemicals, so not only do they look great on your feet but they are also friendly to the planet.
Following on from this winter’s collaborative release, we made the new style in grey Burel wool, an artisanal Portuguese felt fabric known for its water resistance and durability, finished with a contrast ecru sole and unique French tricolour heel detailing.
The shoes are available from the Ltd. Store, V. Barber and Shop and Royal Cheese and due to popular demand we’ve made very limited numbers available online now.
Below are some shots courtesy of Novesta of the manufacturing process, along with the sneakers in the Paris stores.
