Description

Classic cherry red 11-eye Derby boot made in Britian!

-custom design for Coretex only-

?The county of Northamptonshire, England, has a long history of shoemaking dating back to the 13th century. In an attempt to impose some regularity to their income, five men living in the village of Wollaston banded together to form a co-operative (a company owned and run by the people working in it) called the Northamptonshire Productive Society (NPS). in 1959 the first English pair of sample boots with air-cushioned soles was welted in the NPS factory. For 35 years NPS produced Solovair (Sole-of-Air) boots and shoes under licence, which were sold under the name ?Dr Martens by Solovair?. Times change and NPS no longer produces boots and shoes under licence. Indeed, it is no secret that since the 1980s the UK?s manufacturing sector has drastically shrunk and shoemakers have been exposed to increased imports of finished footwear. In 2006 Ivor Tilley asked the co-operative if he could purchase NPS Shoes with the hope of both continuing its life as a shoe factory, whilst also preserving both the employment of local villagers and the skills and knowledge which had been accumulated during the long history of the company; the workers voted in his favour.
The factory has subsequently gone from strength to strength and our Solovair footwear brand is now distributed to all four corners of the world. Our customers understand that British made footwear is amongst the best quality in the world. By combining over 130 years of traditional craftsmanship and tooling with the latest technology and materials, NPS will continue to produce the finest quality footwear.?
