Experts from scientific institutions and specialized educational institutions work in conjunction with foreign designers to develop the brand’s product line.
The Kotofey production facilities are equipped with modern German, Italian, Spanish, Turkish and Asian machinery. The shoes are made of safe, environmentally friendly materials.
The company has its own quality control department, with experts present in all stages of the production process, from the supply of raw materials to the packaging of the finished product.
Thanks to expert management and each site’s specialized production of a specific type of shoes, Kotofey products offer the best value for money, ensuring steady sales growth and a leg up over local and foreign competitors.
Kotofey is one of only a few brands in Russia extensively involved in developing children’s shoes as both scientific and research institutes and specialized educational institutions.
The company works is longstanding collaboration with the Moscow State University of Design and Technology (MSUDT), Russia’s first and largest university specializing in training personnel for the consumer goods industry.
The padding of Kotofey shoes are designed in conjunction with specialists from MSUDT utilizing recommendations from orthopedists, as well as data collected from indispensable research and measurements of children’s footsteps.
The implementation of advanced production techniques, the modernization of equipment and work with quality raw material suppliers allowed the company to successfully enter the medium price range market of children’s and adolescent shoes.
