Bally’s splash of yellow


Bally’s rubber “galoches” shoe are amazing!

Vulcanised-rubber galoches were first produced in the late 19th century by Charles Goodyear, whose son invented the Goodyear welt used in Bally’s Scribe Novo shoes. The French word ‘galoche’ comes (via Latin) from the Greek words for ‘wood’ and ‘foot’, and originally referenced a shoemaker’s last, but later referred to wooden platform overshoes worn to raise good footwear above waste-covered city streets.
