Bally 'Newsom' Boots

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I have been looking at these Bally Boots and have tried them on at my local Bally store. Leather feels good and I like the style. They are very light weight with a rubber sole that the Bally salesgirl insists includes a rubber pigment that allows the sole to last longer than a leather sole and gives it its light weight. By no means are these shoes cheap price wise so I am soliciting opinions and/or alternate boots in a similar style (ankle and zip) that brings better bang for buck and quality.

Yes I think you are right. No matter how convincing the sales girl sounds I cant get my head over a glued rubber sole at that price point no matter how light they make the boot. Agree with your suggestions however not crash hot about a Chelsea. Considering these

These are meant to be Italian Made.
