New Month, New Style

Being a lady, fashion sense is second to nothing. What we wear makes a point of who we are. with every outfit, we go for the kill and shoes land the final blow. In whatever weather or occasion we need a shoe that make us feel comfortable: we need a shoe that gives us the confidence to walk, to display the girl-power in us. We need a shoe that declares our presence in the room: simple yet elegant.

The One: The Perfect Shoe Commemorating the Perfect Shoe Maker

The One

To commemorate 100 years since the birth of Thomas J. Bata, a very special shoe called “The One” has been created in a limited quantity.

At the age of four, Thomas J. Bata received at Christmas from his father Tomáš , a miniature shoemaker’s bench with a set of cobbler’s tools: a small gift with a great significance that would soon pave the way and inspire this extraordinary “shoemaker to the world“.

The One is a tribute to this very man, honoring his values and wish of bringing affordable quality into people’s lives. Developed in Italy, this limited edition shoe is a rendition of Mr. Bata’s favorite style – the classic black brogue. Both elegant and subtle, The One represents perfectly Mr. Bata’s character, as a talented entrepreneur but also a man of the people.

Made with the finest quality leather, each piece is individually numbered, from 1 to 1200. This brogue has been specially designed with a Derby broke wing tip with a slightly wider fitting and elevated toe. The upper is made of premium calf leather brushed off by hand, first with “carnauba” wax to close the leather grain and make it water resistant and then brushed off with shining cream.

Bata Shoes CEO Mr. Jack Clemons presents a pair of The One to Nairobi County's County Executive in charge of Trade, Industrialization, Co-operative Development & Tourism Ms. Anna Othoro during the opening of Bata MBK

A highlight is undoubtedly Thomas J. Bata’s signature engraved into the Goodyear welted sole. The welt process, or double stitch by hand, is one of the most complicated and, at the same time, one of the most fascinating methods of shoe construction. The upper and the raised insole lip are sewn to the welt, which, in turn, is stitched to the sole. The advantages of Goodyear welt shoes are many: long lasting product life, comfortable fit, flexibility, water-repellent, easy to maintain and repair.

Another special feature is also the heel. Built in multi leather layers and fixed with nails, the rear quarter has inserted rubber to reduce walking noise. Moreover, with each pair of shoes, a personalized T.J.B. box and the following accessories have been developed:

• Cedar wood last (to maintain shoe shape and absorb humidity), brass top with T.J.B. signature

• Personalized black shoe polish natural wax

• Personalized cleaning brush (short hair)

• Personalized polishing brush (long hair)

• Metal shoe horn with leather string and T.J.B. signature

• Spare pair of cotton wax laces

• Presentation booklet in the box pocket

“The One” is not available for retail sale as it has been produced to be given as a company gift to directors and other notables. In line with Bata’s vision, this project truly honors tradition and heritage with the understanding of the importance of maintaining quality even in today’s fast changing world.

You can view “The One” at the Biggest Bata Store in Africa, MBK.
