Bata



This the place to buy shoes if you are Indian born before 1990, when the MNCs invaded our country and Nike and Reebok became the in-thing. Bata shoes is what we wore to school and to functions. For comfort and style, Bata is what parents said was the high-end thing, when the majority bought their shoes off the street vendors.

P.S: Bata is not paying me for promoting the firm... but i really really think they should. :-)
