Fodor's Expert Review Tisza
For a uniquely Hungarian souvenir, check out this home-grown shoe company named for a beloved river that flows through eastern Hungary. The company is known for its rubber-soled shoes, boots, and sneakers, which were all the rage behind the Iron Curtain in the 1970s. Tisza soles provided the basis for scores of "domestic" shoes then as well, providing workers in Hungary with sturdy and comfortable shoes in which to toil. These days, new groovy designs make the sneakers popular with the hipster crowd.
