All points lead back to Bally’s Swiss roots with the new Vulko sneaker. Imprinted with the geographic coordinates of Bally’s original factory in Schönenwerd, Switzerland as a reference to its Swiss heritage, the Vulko sole is also inspired by the welt of a bicycle wheel tyre giving this shoe a modern industrial vibe.

The bike tyre reference emerged from inspiration gathered during a road trip that the Bally Creative Collective took through Los Angeles and the surrounding areas. The presence of white rubber bike tyres gave birth to this new sole design and a feeling of nostalgia that references vintage throughout the sneaker collection.

Named for and made with the vulcanized construction of shoe sole crafting, the sneaker is extremely durable. The low-top style, Vrey comes in white leather, multi-colour camel check pattern borrowed from Spring Summer’s ready-to-wear and an Edelweiss-motif archive print. The high-top Vulker version, which has a more fashion-forward outlook comes in the same multi-colour camel check pattern as well as a neutral suede style. Also featured on the Vulko is a stylized Bally Stripe in a tone-on-tone cream hue.
