Botas may be little known outside its homeland, but the brand was a national institution in the Czechoslovakia of the 60s. Then, overshadowed by global giants, it fell on hard times. But now, thanks to a student project aiming to show how useful graphic design can be, the original sneaker has been relaunched as the Botas Classic 66 Collection, a lifestyle as much as a footwear range. The concept store that stocks them has since won several design awards.
