Bata South Africa


Founded in 1894, Bata is the worldʼs leading shoemaker by volume, designing stylish and comfortable footwear at surprisingly affordable prices. Bata is a family-owned business serving more than 1 million consumers a day in our 5,300 stores, and producing locally in our 23 Bata-owned manufacturing facilities across five continents.


From Milan to Nairobi, and La Paz to Singapore, we make, market and sell enviable new designs and era-defining classics. As well as being a global brand, we are still a private family business. And weʼre proud to act like one.


Originally, we set out to ʻShoe the Worldʼ. This led us to where we are now: The No. 1 global footwear company and an international fashion icon.

This holiday season, @tomytakkies is challenging friends and followers to gift local and support some incredible woman entrepreneurs!

For Tomy, women empowerment isn`t just a slogan, it`s a core value. Tomy proudly donates a portion of every sale to initiatives supporting women and girls in South Africa. The brand also regularly spotlights female-driven businesses, and Tomy’s #12DaysOfGifting campaign on social media is doing just that!
From December 1st to 12th, Tomy is highlighting 12 inspiring women-led South African brands and supporting their businesses by giving away some of their beautiful, locally-made items (along with some Tomy sneakers!) to lucky winners.

Curious to know more about these local powerhouses and their businesses? Head over to our Tomy blog to read more and perhaps even find the perfect gift for your loved ones: https://bit.ly/3ReVHR3
