About our shoes

Bata operating companies are grouped into business units. It makes sense to us to operate locally. This way we can share expertise when it comes to similarities in markets and business issues. Each group benefits from synergies specific to their requirements. That includes similarities in product development, sourcing and marketing support. It’s another example of how Bata’s global success is in reality made of thousands of local successes.

Bata, founded by Tomas Bata in Austria-Hungary, continues as a family-run business. Today our headquarters are in Lausanne, Switzerland, but our operations separate geographically into three divisions. Bata Europe is based in Italy and operates 500 stores offering fashionable footwear. Many of our innovative fashion lines originate at our Italian center. The world-class shoe innovation center just outside Venice supplies many of the exclusive lines found in Bata stores throughout Europe.

Bata International serves customers in much of Asia, the Pacific and Africa through its 3,000 stores and many dealers. It is supervised from Singapore. Bata International operates shoe innovation centers in several countries, as well as 23 factories to serve individual markets.

Bata Latin America is based in Mexico City. Bata is the leading retailer of shoes in Latin America. We’re also the leading marketer of children’s branded footwear!

Bata – The Leading Shoe Brand in Singapore

Our story began in 1894 in a small town called Zlin, in the Czechoslovakia. The siblings Tomas, Anna and Antonin Bata founded the T.& A. Bata Shoe Company with $320 inherited from their mother. With over 300 years of family history in shoemaking, the reputation for quality and know-how of the Bata name helped propel the company’s start-up. Being the ninth generation of shoemakers, they introduced innovation which brought about the “Batovka”, a high quality, mass-manufactured, affordable shoe for working people. The Bata legacy had just begun.

BATA started building its name in the then Malaya when the first store opened at Capitol Building, Singapore on August, 1931. Tomas Bata established Bata Shoe Company Limited to carry on the business as manufacturers, distributors and marketers of footwear.

Today, Bata has grown to be a leading footwear manufacturer in Singapore and operates a retail chain of more than 40 stores. Home to BATA Asia Pacific and Africa operations, the Singapore office manages close to 3,000 outlets in the region.

BATA's reach may be worldwide, but our presence is local. Our novel international manufacturing structure allows Bata facilities around the globe to respond to the unique needs and wants of local customers.


As a result, we are honoured to be a ‘local’ company in Singapore.

Power Skipaholics Team Tours Schools

Skip, perform and impress! Those are the watchwords of the Power Skipaholics team, which is making the rounds of schools across Singapore to promote the sport of skipping rope.

The first stop was the co-ed Montfort Secondary School, in northeastern Singapore, on March 7. More than 600 students between the ages of 13 and 16 were entertained by the talents of the Power Skipaholics team before joining in the fun.

The Power Skipaholics team is a group of female rope-skipping enthusiasts who have been putting on performances to entertain and spread the message of health and fitness since 2010. Their performances showcase single rope skipping, partner skipping, long rope skipping and double Dutch.

Power has been the team’s partner since 2014 with the sponsorship of Power footwear for the coaches as well as the sponsorship of Jumpfest, an annual competition held for all schools in Singapore and attended by more than 1,000 school students and skipping enthusiasts.

This July, the 2016 Jumpfest will involve the top teams from over 50 schools. Rope skipping is an activity offered in all Singaporean schools.

“By partnering with the Skipaholics, we are able to connect with the students on the ground level and in their environment, which is challenging under the Ministry of Education’s strict regulations,” commented Pierluigi Pontecorvo, company manager of Bata Singapore. "We hope that with such activities, we are able to increase brand awareness among students."

Power Skipaholics Team Holds JumpFest 2016 in Singapore

On July 29, the Power team from Singapore organized their “JumpFest” event, involving schoolchildren from a number of the country's primary schools. The aim of the event was to create a fun skipping contest to help children keep fit, and raise awareness of the Power brand..

The competition took place at the Home Team NS Balestier clubhouse in Singapore, and featured a total of 440 skippers from 15 different primary schools, for a total of 36 teams. Also in attendance were the coaches and parents of the contestants, along with a number of representatives from Bata Singapore: Pierluigi Pontecorvo, country manager; Parrish Tan, marketing manager; Stephanie Chua, A & P and customer service officer, and Jaz Hang, Bata Club manager.

Participation saw an increase of 20 percent compared to the last JumpFest held in 2014, and there was also an increase in the number of participants wearing Power shoes. Participants were each given drawstring goodie bags featuring the Power Logo, and including Power JumpFest event t-shirt, a bottle of water, a Bata voucher and a skipping rope.

The competition was divided into a number of segments. First was the Power 3 Minute Challenge, with 10 participants per team. The objective was for teams to make the most number of successful skips as possible with the individual rope within three minutes. First place in the event went to Pioneer Primary School team 3, with Woodgrove Primary team 1 in second, and Pioneer Primary team 2 in third.

The second event was the SkipFit Long Rope Relay, again featuring 10 members per team. Each player took turns to jump across a figure-eight pathway around the turners. The aim of the challenge was for teams to complete as many successful skips as possible on the long rope within one minute. The winners of the event were Woodgrove Primary team 1, with Innova Primary teams B and C in second and third places respectively.

Following the competitive events, there was a special appearance by athletes from the Singapore national teams, including Calvin Kang Li Loong, Syahir Jack Ezekiel, Ang Xuan Yi, Kelvin Tan and James Wong. There then followed photos with the winning teams and a novelty challenge, where the national athletes attempted the Power 3 Minute challenge with participants. Paralympian Kelvin Tan also tried the novelty challenge, becoming the first visually handicapped athlete to take part in the competition.

To conclude the event, the Skipaholics team from Power entertained the crowd with a special performance, clad in customized Power clothing and shoes. The team performed creative skipping stunts accompanied by a pop music sound track.

"Pontecorvo commented: “I am thrilled to be a part of this event, and I must say that I never thought skipping could be so exciting and well-received by the students. With Power being the organiser and main sponsor of this event since 2014, we have seen the growth of the brand among the younger segment evidently with an increase in number of students wearing Power shoes in this year’s competition.”

Bata Opens Doors at Premiere Mall in Singapore

Bata Singapore launched a brand new store at the Centrepoint shopping mall on March 12, with Bata Club members in attendance as special guests.

The Centrepoint was one of the first malls on the famed Orchard Road and has remained one of the biggest and most abuzz since 1983. The mall was recently revamped and is poised to attract shoppers with many new stores and restaurants.

Company manager Pierluigi Pontecorvo and finance director Joseph Toh got the festivities underway with a ribbon cutting ceremony. Bata Club members who had shopped at Bata stores in central Singapore were invited, and staff representing each company department came as well.

Customers were given a chance to win prizes by spinning a "Spin and Win" wheel with each purchase. Valued Bata Club members were invited to spin the wheel twice.

"It is with great pleasure that I announced the opening of the Centrepoint store," Pontecorvo commented. "I must give credit to the team for making the store opening a success through their hard work and teamwork. To open a store in Singapore’s premier shopping district, the famous Orchard Road, gives me great pride, and we believe that we will continue to grow the brand and the business in Singapore."
