Lucky Thai Consumers Get a Second Chance at Bata “Peanuts” Sneakers

Since its relaunch in 2014 as part of Bata’s 120th-anniversary celebrations, the legendary Bata Tennis has once again been taking the world by storm. And, for fashion-conscious consumers, the special limited editions produced by Bata in collaboration with Japanese brand Comme des Garçons have been especially popular.

So popular, in fact, that the recent release featuring characters from the beloved “Peanuts” comic strip sold out in record time. Only 1,500 pairs were produced and they quickly disappeared from selected stores in Paris, New York, Miami, London, Tokyo, and Taipei.

Foot Care: Your Feet – Your Foundation

Can’t find the source of that nagging back or knee pain? You might never suspect it, but your feet could be the culprit. If your feet are unstable, chances are the rest of your body is, too. After all, if you built a house on an unstable foundation, wouldn’t you sooner or later expect to see structural problems in the house itself?

It’s the same with our feet. Take flat feet (pronation), for instance—a common condition of collapsed foot bones. It’s more than a local problem because it can cause the ankles to roll in and the legs to rotate inward. Naturally, this puts stress on the knee joints, causing discomfort and pain. Young athletes, especially women, are prone to patellofemoral syndrome, a painful knee condition directly traceable to abnormal foot mechanics. Back pain, too, can result from an unstable foot bone structure.

Foot Care: Feet for Life, Pain-Free!

Do you grin and bear foot pain day after day? Many people think foot pain is normal, but that’s a myth. If your feet hurt, don’t put up with the pain—take action.

Many foot problems are related to “overuse syndromes.” When we consider that it takes about 1,000 foot strikes to walk a mile, it’s easy to appreciate how the smallest foot irritation can escalate and cause trouble. Foot pain often builds up gradually and stubbornly persists unless the cause is addressed.

Flip-Flops Made in Kenya Echo Around the Bata World

Flip-flops, also known as thong sandals, are basic in all the best ways. With its flat sole and simple strap anchored between the toes, this shoe style was probably among the earliest types in existence, perhaps dating back to 1500 B.C. More than 3000 years later, modern men, women and children still find them a great choice for comfortable, easy footwear.

Given flip-flops’ long history of success, it was only natural that Bata would manufacture its own version of this ancient shoe. The factory at the center of this enterprise is Bata’s facility in Limuru, Kenya, which produces 16 million pairs per year – representing 40% of Bata’s worldwide production and more than half of the factory’s total output.
