The Bally company was founded as "Bally & Co" high fashion in 1851 by Carl Franz Bally and his brother Fritz in the basement of their family home in Schönenwerd in the Canton of Solothurn, Switzerland.
The Bally hallmark is the crafting of exquisite leather. Since 1851, Bally has been globally recognized for its 'Swiss Made' quality and its contemporary style. Bally not only pioneered the realm of shoe making, but also the worlds of retailing and advertising.
The first retail store opened in 1881 on London's prestigious New Bond Street. Bally heralds its 160th year anniversary with a celebratory range of shoes, bags and accessories for men and women. These eye-catching creations speak of the heritage and craftsmanship of Bally, with a hint of contemporary wit.
