The beautiful smell of fresh Swiss leather has arrived at Aventura Mall with the opening of Bally, located near Nordstrom. Feel special, because it's the brand's only Florida location. Inside you'll find 2,000 square feet of men's and women's sweaters, jackets, knits, and pants, and of course bags and shoes, which is what Bally is most known for.
Since design director Pablo Coppola took the reigns of the brand, it's turned into anything but your dad's go-to shoe brand. Just look at fashion house's spring pastel line, which features clean angles and complimentary shades of deep burgundy and pink, mint green and emerald. You may not be able to hike Mount Everest in these (fun fact: Bally supplied the boots for the explorers who made the first climb to the top), but you will be able to STRUT.
