Sneakers since 1949
BOTAS first presented the model known today as the CLASSIC already back in 1966.
The design was born by the pen of designer Marcel Scheinpflug and in the beginnings
it boasted hide from Mongolian horses. It underwent significant changes in the nineteen
eighties (Milan Mlynar) and noted a dramatic comeback in 2005, when botas shoes
ranked among the top 100 icons of Czech design.
In 2008, this model was chosen by Jan Kloss and Jakub Korous as the basis for their
school project “botas 66” at the Applied Arts University in Prague. The result was the
laurel prize for European design - ED Awards, subsequently mastering the National Prize
for Student Design and adding the model to production! Within the scope of the new
sub-label – botas 66 – the first collection of sixteen designs was created for the 2009
season, with which BOTAS came in 3rd at the prestigious Czech Grand Design
Competition in the “Producer of the Year” category. One year later, the new collection
included 25 designs already and botas was basking in its glory. In 2010, botas was even
awarded 1st place in this prestigious competition in the “Producer of the Year” category.
Thanks to its success in the field of applied arts and a connection to the original shoemaking
tradition, botas 66 is a representative of the Czech industry on the national and
international scene every year – Designblok, Czech Selection in Milan or London.
