While not everyone can carry the torch into the Opening Ceremonies, Bally’s London 2012-inspired sneaker and tote gives you an easy and chic way to keep your Olympic spirit burning this summer.
Striking and playful red-stitching winds up a white high-top that is just as comfortable on an L.A. sidewalk as it is in The Coliseum. The edgy back-zip opens to reveal an elegant “Bally-rina,” adorned in Olympic colors and waving a gymnastics ribbon as she makes sure that, after the athletes, your Athena high-tops will be the most talked about part of the summer.
The Bally-rina also graces the accompanying Hanoe tote, an understated and elegant sister to the attention-grabbing high-tops. Cream-colored fabric showcasing the intricate Olympic-themed Bally-rina stitching is spiced up with soft-leather handles that feature the company’s signature red and white Trainspotting stripes.
Crafted in the upbeat, youthful spirit of the Swiss brand, the Bally-rina Olympics collection is now available in-stores and online at www.bally.com.
