Encapsulating Noah’s signature juxtaposition of prep and street styles in a refined fashion, the full leather shoes combine a stark black toebox with colorful red and green quarter paneling. Noah’s signature Knights Templar cross is debossed on the lateral heel, and silver metal eyelets provide a little extra flair for the lacing system. The leather footbed features co-branded detailing, and the air-cushioned black lug sole is accented by white contrast stitching.
First known as NPS and originally founded in Northamptonshire, England all the way back in 1881, Solovair is one of the world’s most renowned shoe and boot makers, originally building footwear for the British army before playing a crucial role in creating Doc Martens during the 1960s. Solovair still builds its shoes with the same machine that the original Docs were made on in the ’60s, so this release explores a little-known — but tremendously rich — piece of footwear history.
The Noah x Solovair Gibson Shoe is beginning to sell out, but you can read more about Solovair’s history and purchase select sizes now via noahny.com. Retail is set at $188 USD.
