History of Solovair Boots:
The famous production standards of NPS has secured Solovair a reputation with retailers and discerning customers, as a premium soft suspension product. Rather than have a continuous production line, which they believe offers the operative no time to notice and correct any errors, NPS is organised in areas according to distinct stages of production. Each pair is only passed from one area to another when the respective operative is satisfied they are ready. In this respect, there is a far slimmer chance that an unsatisfactory shoe or boot will result at the end of the production process.
In effect it is a continuous quality control process not employed by many other factories. Each pair of boots goes through about 120 different production stages. NPS Solovair is an independent & family-run business manufacturing the finest handmade Goodyear-welted footwear in the county of Northamptonshire, England. Established in 1881, they have a proud and distinguished heritage in footwear manufacturing. NPS Solovair continue to remain true to their ideals, combining over 130 years of tradition, the latest technology and materials, in order to produce the best quality shoes and boots.
To maintain this undisputed quality, our products will always be hand-made from start (‘clicking’) to ‘finishing’ in the UK.

Sizing Measurements: These boots are listed in Mens UK Sizing. If in doubt we recommend one size larger (you can always add an insole if needed) We have measured the actual inside measurement of the boots (see the last picture in the gallery) As all brands of boots differ in sizing please do check the measurements The best way to do this is to either measure inside the boots you have now (measure the insole longest point inside) or take a piece pf paper, and standing up wearing socks, stand on the paper and draw a line around your foot, then compare to the measurements below:
Here are the actual inside measurements based on the longest and widest point inside the boot. Please allow some space as your foot will expand when warm and you do not want your toe to knock against the steel cap.
