Bally Everest

Until May 29, 1953, conquering Everest had remained an unachievable dream for mankind.
It was eventually down to two members of a British team to achieve the impossible – New Zealand bee-keeper and mountaineer, Sir Edmund Hillary, and a Nepali Sherpa, Tenzing Norgay.
The pair reached the summit at 11:30 am local time on 29 May 1953. Both acknowledged it as a team effort by the whole expedition, but Tenzing revealed a few years later that Hillary had put his foot on the summit first.
When Sherpa Tenzing Norgay took his final steps to the top of the world, he made that journey in a pair of Bally Reindeer-Himalaya boots, forever linking the Swiss brand to this momentous achievement.
