Bally With Love
The "Bally With Love" collection was born out of founder Carl Franz Bally's simple gesture for his wife Cecyle 168 years ago. "Determined to please her, Carl Franz Bally returned from a Paris business trip to his home of Switzerland with an entire size run of shoes for his beloved as he couldn’t remember her size. Luckily she selected two pairs that were perfect and Bally sold the rest with such success. He converted his ribbon shop into a shoe store in 1851 and Bally as we know it today was formed."
