J Cole for Bally FW15 Collaboration
Bally has teamed-up with Grammy nominated hip-hop artist J Cole to produce special edition hiking boots and a backpack for the urban explorer.
Bally’s first hiking boot was launched in the 1950’s to protect the feet of Sherpa Tenzing Norgay when he climbed Mount Everest. Sixty years on and the international brand is launching a new version of these boots reincarnated for the modern explorer.
The boots and backpack will be offered in a range of colours and materials from calf leather to exotic python.
“I always had an interest in what goes into designing footwear. Fortunately, the opportunity presented itself and I got the chance to work with such a well-respected brand with a long history of making product of the highest quality. When I learned more about the company’s past and was able to see their archives of boots going back over a 100 years, it excited me even more.” – J.Cole
