Not many Zambians, born and raised in our beautiful motherland, can tell the story of their lives without a feature by the tried and trusted – Bata Toughee, and we are no exception.
We’d run home from school, quickly polish our Bata Toughees, before heading off to play.
Since then, we have been guilty – like many others, of associating Bata with tough and time worn school and industrial shoes.
But of course, there’s more.
Recently, we got a chance to hang out at the Bata warehouse, surrounded by the trendiest shoes.
So now, we were seeing a trustworthy brand, that was also really cool, and we wanted to share this.
So here is the first of our Bata Lookbooks.
Watch this space for more lookbooks.
Thanks (& thanks) to the team at Bata for letting us loose on their warehouse!
