The Novesta brand dates back to the 1930s, when the famous shoemaker Jan Antonin Bata opened a new factory in the small town of Partizánske in the middle of Slovakia. Over time, they have become one of the best-loved and most popular brands throughout Europe and the rest of the world.
For Novesta, quality design refers to more than fashion. We are dedicated to manufacturing shoes according to the highest environmental standards. Using only certified materials such as natural rubber, cotton and linen (both 100% qualities), skilled craftsmen and manual work, their products are both ethically and ecologically made.
We were blown away by the Marathon the moment we saw it. A minimal, classic running shoe design that's lightweight, comfortable and softly constructed, it's the coolest sneaker we've seen in the past few decades. We see it as the perfect casual Summer shoe, working great with a pair of chinos, shorts or jeans. The minimal design and lack of logos means it also looks great worn with a popover shirt and a soft, casual sportcoat. We think they look good with just about anything on the off-duty side of the spectrum.
We would've loved stocking a shoe like this back in our early days, so we are thrilled to partner with Novesta and welcome these exceptional, quality sneakers to our stores.
Novesta sneakers come in whole sizes only. If between sizes, we recommend sizing down.
