Noma's Exclusive Kicks

You Can’t Get These Shoes Unless You Work at One of the World’s Best Restaurants


August 11, 2019 Style By

Copenhagen-based clothing brand Norse Projects collaborated with Dr. Martens to produce shoes for one of the best restaurants in the world. The two blacked-out styles — a minimalist oxford and understated double monk strap — are made exclusively for the front-of-house team at legendary Danish restaurant Noma.

The styles complement the tasteful design of of the restaurant, recently re-situated in Christiania. Danish architect Bjarke Ingels conceived eleven separate buildings to bring Noma’s to merge the restaurant’s forward-thinking research and top-tier service into one small community. The minimal design aesthetic is echoed in the new Norse Projects x Dr. Martens shoes: an unadorned leather upper sits on a comfortable air-cushioned sole. They’re practical, tasteful and rare — and the only way you’ll own a pair is if you’re already on the Noma team.
