Bally is a luxury fashion brand that was founded in 1851, Switzerland. It originally started out making elastic ribbon, before its founders Carl and Fritz Bally decided to expand the business to shoe production, after seeing the potential at a Parisian factory. After several re-brandings in the late 19th century, the brand began to grow quickly, in the hands of the founders sons. They opened their first international stores in Uruguay, Argentina, Paris and London the 1870s and 80s. They were also one of the first companies to move into the Chinese market after it has opened up in 1880, which they did again in the 1980s. Skip forward to the late 20th century, and Bally has expanded into clothing, handbags, leather wear for both men and women, and are a global brand. They are still headquartered in Switzerland, and are owned by JAB Holdings. Bally shoewear has also been part of several iconic, events such as being worn to win Olympic medals, being the first boots to reach the top of Mount Everest in the Himalayas.
