Shoes For:
American Ballers
As part of the Bata tradition of making shoes adapted to local conditions, it was only fitting that in 1964 the Bata factory in Belcamp, Maryland (USA) would make basketball sneakers for the local NBA team, the Baltimore Bullets.

The Bata Bullets became so popular that Bata started making different Bullet lines across different sports (wrestling, soccer, cycling) over the years before the shoes were discontinued in the mid-1970s.

Long considered underground cult classics of the sneaker scene, the Bata Bullets got a re-launch for Spring/Summer 2016, as a testament to the company's rich history and enduring values.

Bata Hotshots:
Since 1972
In the early 1970s, Bata developed a relationship with Wilson® to develop lightweight sneakers for the US market. The Hotshot was one of the core products of that partnership and it sold for a few seasons. It was only two decades later that the Bata Hotshot got a big revival when Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain was spotted wearing them on several occasions. We never got a chance to ask him what he liked about the shoe. Our guess is that he felt they were unique, different and authentic.
