Paraboot is a French brand founded in 1908, the standard-bearer for craftsmanship from the Isère region. The brand's values are proudly conveyed by a model that has been around for over 70 years: the Michael. From work boot to emblem, it has stood the test of time and made Paraboot famous.
The emblem that is Paraboot.
Its name, too, has a history. "Para" was originally the name of the port from which latex was exported from Amazonia, and "boot" refers to the discovery of this type of shoe in the United States during Rémi Richard's stay. He registered the Paraboot trademark in 1927. Identifiable by the small green fabric that discreetly adorns the sides of most of these models, Paraboot gradually established itself in the everyday landscape, offering collections suitable for both city and outdoor activities.
The sewn shoe.
Paraboot is currently the world leader in Norwegian stitching, the visible seam between the sole and the rest of the shoe. The advantage of this assembly technique is that it makes the shoe waterproof and resoleable. Historically, this assembly technique was used for assembly and work shoes. Paraboot uses two other techniques: Goodyear stitching, which is a visually more refined version of Norwegian stitching. Blake stitching, a technique in which the upper is directly linked to the sole. Models with this type of stitching are supple and lightweight.
Paraboot is a brand of lovers of beautiful, quality products, and this is reflected in their entire collection.
