Founded under the name NPS by five men in the village of Wollaston, Northamptonshire, known for its shoe industry, Solovair originally outfitted the British Army and later became the shoe that defined counterculture England through the 1990s. Solovair’s air-cushioned shoes carry that history of consistent quality in each step. We recently paid a visit to the factory and are beyond proud to continue our exclusive collaboration with Solovair.

Solovair footwear has been made since the 1960’s, but when the brand was trademarked in 1995 it became a go-to for purists and independent punk shops in neighborhoods like Camden. Still made on the same lasts, leather cutters, and machines used to make their original boots and shoes, Solovair’s soft sole suspension shoes carry that history of consistent quality in each step.
