I can’t say that I know a lot about Bally shoes, particularly because I know that within the last 10 years there has been some rocky roads with all of the ownership changes but what I can say is that I have always liked their higher-end line, what is now called (or possibly always) Scribe. Traditionally made in Switzerland (and I think brought back to there), the Scribe shoe has always been built on the tradition of craftsmanship and quality, with goodyear welting construction and high grade leathers. While I have never had the pleasure of actually wearing one or knowing anyone who has, I can say that in person they seem nice, and you can’t find too many people with a bad thing to say about Bally. Therefore, they must be good! Nevertheless, I like some of the things that I see in these pictures, particularly the highlighted double monk wingtips…..Should I ever make it to Switzerland, you can bet that I will pit stop at the Bally store!
