By working together with scientists and extensive in-house testing, Bata is a trendsetter in the industry when it comes to technology. All safety shoes support and protect your feet while you work. Bata goes one step further. The result: work shoes that offer the best possible support thanks to their perfect fit.


For our safety shoes and functional socks we only use first-class natural materials, plastics, rubber types and yarns.  When it comes to developing safety footwear, Bata Industrials is casting beyond the borders of its own work area. The most recent evidence of this are safety shoes equipped with the unique and patented Boa closure system. This is a system that finally puts an end to the traditional shoelace, guarantees a perfect fit, and ensures that the wearer literally acquires a ‘firm footing’ throughout the entire working day.
