The Bally Boots
Bally has long been associated with mountaineering, most notably outfitting Sherpa Tenzing Norgay in a pair of Reindeer-Himalaya boots as he and Sir Edmund Hillary ascended Mount Everest for the first time in 1953. Now the Swiss brand is celebrating the historic climb's 60th anniversary with the Bally Everest collection, a capsule line that includes cashmere sweaters, leather parkas, and these low-top Viller boots ($825, shown above). Lined in suede and boasting a thick, molded lug sole (designed with a patented no-slip grip), they are the perfect answer to a snowy day—whether you're on a peak or hitting the pavement.
