Created in 1939 by Jan Antonin Bata, the original Novesta shoe was created with a simple but effective design and original production technique producing a finished product that is 100% environmentally friendly and that is of superior quality, providing all Novesta Shoes with a natural and handmade finish. They now have a very solid line up of styles in their collection, each delivering style and comfort with a quality feel that you can only get with a shoe made by hand.
Founded in 1939, Novesta's story goes back to the European industrialisation times when famous shoemaker Jan Antonin Bata opened his new factory in a small town in the middle of Slovakia. Over time, Novesta became one of the top shoe companies and its unique trainers are a favourite not only in Europe but all over the world. Novesta don't use chemicals or glue in their shoe-making processes. Instead, the rubber sole is pressed by a high-pressure machine onto the canvas body and hand-trimmed afterwards. This process leaves a little rubber line around the shoe - a sign of quality craftsmanship
