Bally Celebrate the 1953 Ascent of Mount Everest With Capsule Collection

Bally bring to light their link to the first ascent of Mount Everest in May 1953. Alongside Sir Edmund Hillary, Sherpa Tenzing Norgay made the journey to the top of the world’s highest mountain in none other than a pair of Bally Reindeer-Himalaya boots. To celebrate the 60th Anniversary, Bally put together a small collection of premium footwear. First up, the rather dramatic deerskin Himalaya boot returns, made-to-order from select Bally Stores, the centre-piece of the line-up. On the more wearable end of the scale, the beautiful Vincens Alpine Boot. A play on classic hiking footwear, a tough boot with an elegant build, available to purchase now alongside a women’s Hillary hiking boot. Head to the gallery where we preview the collection and take a look at some archive posters courtesy of the folks at Bally.
