FrontRunners: High Climbers

The Swiss-made, reindeer-fur-covered Bally Everest Collection Himalaya boots (www.bally.com) commemorate the 60th anniversary of Sir Edmund Hillary’s ascent of Mount Everest. The boots are a cashmere-lined version of the Bally footwear that Tenzing Norgay, Hillary’s lead guide, wore when he and Hillary reached the mountain’s peak in 1953. They are made-to-order and available at Bally’s Madison Avenue store in Manhattan for $2,095. The boots feature an elastic update of the original lace-up system, which allows for easy adjustments even in extreme weather. The lightweight sole is new, but it has the original nonslip grip.
