Last year I wrote about ZOOO, because they had Startas shoes. Now I decided to present the golden oldies Croatian store, Borovo. The only thing inside that I would buy are Startas (everything else looks just funny ). They have designer printed shoes and also the basic ones: black, white and dark blue for € 22 or cheaper on sales!
As you all know, Slovenia was once a part of Yugoslavia. In those days things from the West were either hard to get or outrageously expensive! Because of that young folks didn’t drink Coca-Cola but Cockta (which you should try because it’s great!) and they also didn’t have (well….at least the majority didn’t have) All Stars sneakers. But they had Startas shoes, made in Croatia. They were really popular in the 80′s but people forgot about them in the 90′s when Yugoslavia felt apart.
Thanks to designer Mauro Massarotto the brand got a new and fresh design in 2006. I’m a kid of new post-communist Slovenia so before the renaissance I had no idea about Startas and now that I know those shoes and own a pair (or 2 or 3…) I would just like to say: thank you Croatia!
p.s. Ladies! You should also check Borosana!
