Novesta shoes have been produced since 1939, when the famous shoemaker Jan Antonin Bata opened a new factory in the small town of Partizánske in the middle of Slovakia.
Over the time, Novesta has become one of the last purely European produced brands throughout Europe. For Novesta, quality design refers to more than fashion, and the brand manufactures shoes according to the highest environmental standards, using natural materials such as natural rubber and 100% cotton and linen. Novesta combine tradition, heritage, and quality for their hand-made shoes.
Novesta combine tradition, heritage, and quality for their hand-made shoes and use only certified materials. The natural rubber sole is machine-pressed onto the body of the shoe. The shoe is then finished by precise manual work completed by skilled craftsmen. This ethnical and ecological process results in tire marks around the outsole – Novesta’s trademark look! Novesta’s unique sneakers, which pair imaginative design with timeless sophistication, are recognisable around the world.
