    Founded in the 18th century by Tomas Bata in the Czech Republic, this European footwear brand is taking style and comfort to the next level through their quality shoe products. Thomas A. Bata, chief marketing officer and proud descendant of the company’s founder said they’ve been in the shoe business for 27 generations and they are very proud to carry it on. The company would have entered the Philippines earlier, but there were legal complications related to its trademark, says Thomas Bata. “It took many, many years to resolve. Fortunately, with the help of SM, we managed to resolve it.”
