Swiss shoe company Bally received plenty of love from the hip-hop world in the '80s from guys like Rakim and Slick Rick. The latter not only rocks a pair of red suede Ballys on the cover of his debut album, The Great Adventures of Slick Rick, he also says he "threw on the Bally shoes with the fly green socks" in the track "La Di Da Di." Doug E. Fresh also wears a pair of Bally sneakers on the cover of Oh, My God.
