How to Wear Novesta Trainers

When it comes to stylizing the Novesta trainer, we like to keep the look cool and collected. Whether you decide to go for the Star Dribble or the Star Master, aiming for a minimalistic approach will always keep you looking fresh.

We recommend opting for a pair of light coloured, wide or slim fit chino's. While the leg of the chino is a wide fit, rolling up the hem is guaranteed to give your Novesta's a premium edge. Complete the look with either a shirt or sweatshirt. Depending what colour you go for on the feet, this look is easy for transitioning through the months.

Styling can be kept simple

Introducing: Novesta

  • Novesta Star Dribble is a classic hi-top trainer that can be styled with both jeans and chinos for a casual day time look.
  • The Novesta Star Master trainer is a popular, versatile shoe that's available in a variety of colours.
