About Us

A journey in the making since 1851.

Born in Switzerland in 1851, Bally is one of the world's longstanding luxury brands. Proud to be leather architects, our DNA as skilled shoemakers marries a heritage of craftsmanship with a decidedly contemporary aesthetic.

Today, Bally continues to honor its timeless traditions, subscribing to the belief that quality speaks for itself. Even our most iconic shoes, like the men's formal Scribe, created by Carl Franz Bally's grandson Max Bally in celebration of the brand's 100-year anniversary in 1951, are still handmade in Switzerland, taking 240 artisanal techniques to complete.

Craftsmanship

Bally dares to be different, always designing with longevity in mind. Our team of multi-generational artisans based in Caslano, Switzerland, handcraft styles with consistency and care, embodying our dedicated approach to making shoes, accessories and ready-to-wear.

Innovation

We engineer functional fashion that breaks boundaries. Whether it’s Reindeer boots, worn by Tenzing Norgay during the first-ever ascent of Mount Everest in 1953, technical Curling shoes worn by the Swiss Olympic team, or the use of AI and 3-D prototyping to inform our designs, we embrace a multitude of cutting-edge technologies to maximize our possibilities.
