THE PATH IS MADE BY WALKING
NOAH shoes are produced according to high quality standards of the finest Italian handcraft, which accurately combines tradition and innovation. At the same time, NOAH is committed to responsible manufacturing that looks after the environment, animals and human health. NOAH is an innovative alternative to traditional leather shoes: the entire production cycle of NOAH footwear reflects the attention of NOAH for a sustainable environmental impact.
The extraordinary biodiversity, typical of a healthy environment, is a prerequisite for a wholesome lifestyle in harmony with nature. Through the use of non-toxic, hypoallergenic and durable vegan materials (a part of which comes from recycling), NOAH shoes contribute to the reduction of animal suffering and of environmental pollution, without sacrificing comfort and style.
The shoes are skilfully manufactured in Italy in shoe factories of high quality, characterized by traditional handicraft production. Thanks to a careful selection and a constant supervision of the manufacturers, NOAH guarantee that the production takes place in compliance with the current regulations for the protection of workers.

ECO-FRIENDLY CHIC - NOAH`S ITALIAN VEGAN LIFESTYLE
The footwear industry has come a long way since when the environmental protection and the vegan lifestyle were directly associated with the whole grains section of health food stores and to shapeless clothes and shoes.
The energy of the “Dolce Vita“, the Italian taste and the commitment to a responsible, eco-friendly development represent the “Italian Vegan Style” of NOAH.
NOAH'S collections of vegan footwear and the manufacturing process demonstrate that reconciling moral requests with a top quality aesthetic design is possible!
On the contrary, behind the triad “aesthetics, ethics and quality” there is a deep understanding of the socio-ecological design, which is based on the principle of “less is more”. Bearing this vision in mind, NOAH produce quality footwear for all those who appreciate understated elegance and are committed to an environment worth living.
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.
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 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.
The elegant shoes are made of microfibre, while the casual models are mainly made of cork.
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.
