The Bata Ngoma is a shoe that represents one thing and one thing only, ultimate simplicity. It is a shoe for the ladies and even as it may not pass the mark for a sneaker, still one of the most legendary rubber shoes sold in the Kenyan market.
Bata Shoe Company
Bata Shoe Company has been around for decades and their insistence on keeping the Ngoma in production shows just how loved the shoe is by the Kenyan female consumer.
Bata Ngomas are so loved that they are quickly becoming unisex and even have ‘more male’ compatriots that try to emulate the shoe’s simplicity and ultimately, comfortability.
Male Interpretations of the Bata Ngoma
The nearest male interpretation of the rubber shoes is nothing short of a foot’s darling with a sturdy but flexible rubber sole and hard-cloth body. It is laced with long cotton laces and comes in black and white colors. It is such a comfortable shoe that I find myself putting the Timbs aside to rock it. It’s much lighter and beautifully stylish in its black color and laces.
The Future of Bata Ngoma
The Bata Ngoma is here to stay and represents legacy, tradition, and culture. So much so that it will continue to walk the Kenyan country for decades to come. Bata Shoes are good quality shoes and finding one that fits so well and is so comfortable and simple is nothing short of a shoe lover’s paradise.
