CEBO (CESBO, Ceske Boty) is the Czechoslovak brand under which shoes were exported from Czechoslovakia. At the heart of the six factories producing shoes under this brand, there were several former manufactures of the famous company Bata. The company was created by Tomas Batey at the end of the 19th century, but a part of it located in Czechoslovakia (in particular, the future factories Svit and ZDA) was nationalized after the Second World War.
