Prabos at Slavicin ranks among the traditional manufacturers of trekking, working, safety, military and special boots. Its history dates back to the year 1860. Following the Word War I., the shoe production was started at the then firm JAPIS founded by Mr. Pivecka. In 1948, the company was included into the giant enterprise of SVIT. Gradually, the manufacture of leathers was stopped and the buildings were reconstructed to accommodate only shoe manufacture oriented almost exclusively to production of work and military boots.
The company's present name, PRABOS Slavicin, has been used since 1991.
