    Love the Bally movie. The moon boots where Bally?! I never would have guessed!… Never… But it’s always good to learn a new thing.

    I was pretty surprised by the moon boots thing too, to be honest.

    Wow! Had no idea of the vast history of Bally. Happy 160th anniversary to the Swiss bootmaker!

    They left out the most crucial 80′s period when Bally was a most have for all casuals, soul boys and preppy’s combined…….. in London at least, during that period Bally was almost untouchable like Louboutin is to most people today.

    Love the telemark ski boots best of all.

    @AFROSAXON, Doug E Fresh and Slick Rick were strong advocates of Bally in here in America during the same period.
