Andrea Szilágyi, a graduate of Studio Berçot in Paris, founded her brand, NES Shoes in 2004: environmentally-friendly shoes for men, women and children. NES Shoes has exhibited in Paris and expanded partnerships with British, German, Swiss, Japanese, Romanian and Hungarian stores and showrooms.
Since 2008 the brand’s main profile focused on individual & customised orders. Driven towards sustainable practices intrinsic to its design & message, NES products are created exclusively from natural, biodegradable, vegan, recycled and/or recyclable raw materials in an increasingly environmentally-friendly way. Since 2015 production has been based in Nyíregyháza in Hungary at a biomass-heated manufactury, using part-solar panel electricity, where they also strive to procure local raw materials.
In 2020, alongside continued individual orders, a new chapter of limited edition series production where Brand and Manufacturer are now intertwined, has begun for NES shoes. Following the image development of production, Erna Sziky, managing director of Nestta Cipő Ltd. and Andrea bring their products to life together. The Hungarian and International customer can now choose from limited series of sophisticated yet affordable shoes, from an increased product range.
NES shoes aims to provide comfort for your feet as you go about your way: forward-looking, ever-evolving ethical manufacturing and design that will change the way you think about eco-friendly shoes.
