Novesta x Universal Works
Introducing a new collaboration from two of our favourite brands - Novesta and Universal Works.
Two styles made in a traditional performance fabric, Burel melton; a 100% wool fabric made in the mountains of Portugal that was originally worn by Portuguese shepherds. Burel is woven and then felted, which gives it a unique strength and water resistance. Universal Works have sourced this heritage fabric and made a range of shoes with the Slovakian shoe company, Novesta.
Available in the classic Star Master plimsoll or The Hike hi-top which is a new take on an old Novesta shoe that was found in the Novesta archive on a recent visit to their factory in Partizánske. Features a high cut ankle, contrast stitching, press molded vulcanized sole unit with a gum rubber grip outsole.
