Bally “Everest” Vincens Boot
Swiss fashion house Bally is set to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the first scaling of Mount Everest by bringing out of its archives a replica of the boots Sherpa Tenzing Norgay wore when he first climbed the legendary mountain with Sir Edmund Hillary in 1953. The boots will be on display in London as part of a celebratory event hosted by the Mount Everest Foundation and the Himalayan Trust UK. Further contributing to this momentous occasion, Bally produces this men’s Vincens alpine boot. The Vincens is crafted out of a premium brown leather with padded ‘extended’ ankle in a lighter brown. The streamlined upper is complemented by an ankle strap with silver buckle and sits atop a rugged vintage outsole. Completing the pair are the hooked eyelets that suggest the boot’s hiking heritage. The “Everest” Vincens Boot will be available for sale in select outlets starting May 29 alongside the women’s Hillary hiking boot.
