Novesta has been making natural rubber-sole and cotton canvas shoes in the same Slovakian factory since its founding in 1939. The brand only manufactures its shoes using natural materials from environmentally responsible sources, with no chemicals or glues used in the process. Instead, the rubber soles are pressed onto the canvas uppers using traditional machinery, resulting in a recognizable track pattern on Novesta's signature chunky midsoles.
