The Bally Champion Sneakers Are Back—And We’re Living For It



Seems like the sneaker trend is far from over. Joining in the buzz is none other than the comeback of the Bally Champion sneakers.

Originally introduced in 1991, the Bally Champion sneakers quickly became a grand slam favorite. And that’s because of Swiss tennis stars Jakob Hlasek and Marc Rosset who wore the court shoes on their way to winning the Grand Slam at the French Open in 1992.

Recently, the Swiss luxury brand has finally dusted off its archival shoes for the new generation to enjoy. The Champion is a like-for-like revival of the original. It also has a multi-component rubber outsole and herringbone mold.

To make it fit for a posh sport like Tennis, the well-loved storied shoes features an EVA midsole for enhanced cushioning and comfort. Moreover, it has a lace-up style and perforated accents, and a breathable mesh lining and constructing color details. As for the tongue, it showcases the archival Bally Tennis logo.

Part of the storied brand’s relaunching of its classic Champion sneakers, Bally initiates its “Champions are Made” campaign. It’s all about celebrating the challenging yet empowering experiences that develop and define us.

Here in the Philippines, guests and VIPs got to engage in a panel discussion with renowned photographer Shaira Luna. She first made her mark in a  television commercial that attracted several Filipino families. At an early age, she was gifted having an extraordinary IQ of 164.

Although this may be, she made the brave decision to follow her passion for photography. Having strived to follow her dream, she has found success creating a career through her determination to stay true to herself.  After all, what’s most important for Bally is you get to define your own destiny despite the box that the world wants to put you in.

Bally is exclusively distributed by Stores Specialists, Inc. It’s located at Greenbelt 5, Rustan’s Makati, Shangri-La Plaza, and Newport Mall.
