The Bally shoe company was founded in Switzerland in 1851. For over 160 the company's name has been synonymous with luxury footwear.  The company's history is marked with both great struggles and great successes. It went public in 1907, which helped fund its massive expansion. It survived two world wars and the Great Depression in between.  This followed by successful global expansion and entry onto the North American market.  Bally continues to thrive today with more than 200 stores around the world.  Over its 160 year history over 200 Bally posters were created, many of which have become some of the most iconic fashion posters in history.  This elegant advertisement poster from 1938 has a typical Swiss style, featuring a n-dimensional image of a Bally shoebox on a black background, with a impeccably dressed man on the box.  An outline of a men's dress shoe elegantly floats on top of the shoebox.
