Novesta x Merz b. Schwanen

Our First Sneaker

For our Spring | Summer 2023 season, we have something truly special: In collaboration with Novesta, we are happy, proud, and honored to launch our first-ever sneaker!

Known as one of the best and most prestigious shoemakers, Slovakian brand Novesta is among the premier addresses for high-quality shoes and sneakers, with over 80 years of experience since opening its doors in 1939.

Driven by the shared passion for timeless design, authentic manufacturing methods, as well as long-lasting and reliable pieces, both brands combine their expertise by linking up on a unique iteration of a true Novesta classic: the Star Master.

Emphasizing high-quality, sustainable materials and honest manufacturing, each pair is hand-crafted in Europe from the best natural rubber and canvases. Maintaining its chunky, vulcanized sole and finest cotton canvas upper, the signature sneaker gets enriched with a bold 'MbS' print on the side.

In addition, thoughtful details such as the co-branded insoles and the collaborative woven loop label wrapping around the tongue – made on old machines in Germany – round up the timeless yet contemporary look. The specialty of the loop label? Not only sporting the logos of both brands on the front, inside it says 'I'm your good companion!' – which these sneakers are indeed.

The Novesta x Merz b. Schwanen Star Master is now available in three colors and limited quantities online and in our Berlin Flagship Store. Enjoy!

Accompanying our first-ever sneaker, we've enriched our timeless 1950s loopwheeled T-shirt and 346 loopwheeled sweatshirt with the same print on the chest.
