Traditionally, “Chaand Raat” is synonymous with many traditions, from applying henna on the hands, moms preparing all the ingredients for what the morning, lunch and dinner menu will consist of for the coming days whilst you figure out which outfit to start the day off with. It is at this moment you realize that throughout the chaos of fighting traffic and bargaining with shop vendors for the entirety of the month, you completely forgot to buy shoes!! But isn't that also another one of those customs to go out on “Chaand Raat”? Some light weight (window) shopping, hanging out with friends and discussing about how the next three days are going to pan out for everyone and yes, the shoes, don't forget to buy those shoes that will ultimately be a part of your Eid outfit post on Instagram!
For the ladies out there, the women's collection includes Bata Comfit, Marie Claire, Insolia and Red Label that encompass current trending styles of shoes and heels. Don't hate yourself if you end up walking out with more than one pair of shoes, because the collection is just that good. In addition, they also offer ladies bags, purses, leggings and scarves and various other shoe accessories. After all, nothing speaks volumes about your style unless you match those pair of glitters on your feet to the one around your shoulder!
The men's collection includes globally acclaimed lines like Adidas, Power, Skechers. Nike, Hush Puppies. Why restrict yourself to just a pair of sandals to go with your panjabi? Think ten steps ahead and get yourself a pair(s) from one of their sports lines because you plan on losing all that weight you gained during Ramadan and Eid feastings!
Little ones, have no fear, for you have not been forgotten either! Bata offers their Bubblegummers line that includes fashionable designs that also include stone and laser cuttings, perfect for all future fashion trend setters!
Mamun Or Rashid who has been a part of Bata for eleven years and is currently working as a manager, sums it up best by saying, “Bata Bangladesh provides shoes not just for the customer but the whole family. We have shoes for everyone!”
