Just over 18 years ago, Jason King bought a pair of Black Greasy 11'eye Derby Boots from the British Boot Company in Camden, London to celebrate the birth of his first child. Having worn the boots at least once a week since 1998, they were in remarkable condition.

Jason contacted NPS Shoes to kindly thank us for our wonderful product, acknowledging our quality materials and workmanship. We lept at the opportunity to invite Jason a personalised Factory Tour to see how our footwear is manufactured. Our tour is a unique experience, and for Jason, this was particularly special as he met several of the operators who manufactured his original pair of boots.

As a thank you for taking the time to share his story and visit our factory, we exchanged his wonderful boots for a brand new pair - how’s that for a boots-for-life guarantee! 

If you have a great story about your Solovair/NPS boots we’d love to hear from you. Complete our Contact Us form, or find us on Facebook: Solovair-Official-UK, Twitter: Solovairuk or Instagram: Solovairuk.
