Let’s venture back in time to 1939, when famous Slovakian shoe-maker Jan Antonin Bata opened his own factory in his small town. From there, the Novesta brand was born, eventually becoming recognised internationally for the quality of their trainers. More than 50 years later, Novesta has earned a reputation for their sleek and sophisticated designs, as well as their eco-friendly production processes. Using natural rubber and other materials such as cotton and linen, the brand has stayed true to tradition, preserving their techniques and original savoir-faire. While their adult sized trainers stand out as a classic, their children’s shoes and boots are also sure to delight.
