"Yo, Doug! Put your Ballys on!"
"Yo, Rick, I was about to but I need a shoe horn!"

I learned about the Swiss house of Bally from legendary Hip Hop pioneer Doug E. Fresh.  He mentioned the brand quite a bit in his iconic music.  Now, I knew Bally was still around because I used to like going in the store when I lived near one (come to Dallas!) but my '80s nostalgia this week led me to do a bit of cyber window shopping on their site.

I love the clean lines and structure of their pieces.  To think - back in the day as a kid, I thought Bally only sold sneakers! I'm glad they are so much more!
