Bally is one of these brands which have been on the market for generations. Founded in beautiful Switzerland in 1851 by brothers Fritz Bally and Carl Franz, Bally shoes had their humble beginning in the basement of the family-owned home.

Bally shoes have remarkable craftsmanship and great wearability. They are characterized by soft leather that makes them extremely light yet comfortable.

The Swiss dress shoe maker, Bally, crafted one of the best vintage tennis shoes of all time when they manufactured the Bally Animal. These shoes featured a train of walking animals etched into the side of the shoe’s sole creating a design like no one in the sneaker industry had seen before. The impact of these early 1990’s shoes upon New Orleans rappers was so huge that even in the late 2000’s they were being name dropped by Lil’ Wayne.
