Materials & Production

The traditional craftsmanship interpreted in an innovative way

NOAH shoes stand out for the innovative materials processed in Italian handicraft companies and for the creation of a unique combination of quality and aesthetics.

The microfibre is not only beautiful and extremely similar to leather, but it is also very lightweight, wear-resistant, breathable, water repellent and hypoallergenic. The glue used is water based and does not contain animal ingredients. Our craftsmen ensure that we do not use any animal products during the manufacturing process.

Upper materials

Micronappa

Micronappa is a high-quality microfibre material similar to nappa leather. It is a top-level technology product, composed of ultra-fine polyester fibres. This fabric is breathable, soft-to-touch, long-lasting, waterproof and easy to clean.

Microsuede

Microsuede is a high-quality microfibre material similar to suede leather. It is a top-level technology product, composed of ultra-fine polyester fibres. This fabric is soft and pleasant to the touch but strong, breathable and easy to clean. Unlike suede, this material is waterproof. 

Inner sole

The elegant shoes are made of microfibre, while the casual models are mainly made of cork.

Sole

For some casual models we use natural rubber. In most cases it is a blend of natural rubber and recycled materials. The summer shoes and the ballerina are often produced with organic hemp, linen or cotton.

 

Production

To produce the NOAH footwear, we choose Italian handcrafted shoe-factories. Wise and skilful hands boasting extensive knowledge and style handed down from generations, design and manufacture NOAH footwear.  The study of the shapes and love for details are at the basis of each new model which is reviewed and re-interpreted with new, ductile and soft materials to create fine shoes with modern and trendy features.
