Founded in 1908 in the French Alps, Paraboot is renowned for still being wholly handmade by leather artisans — each shoe requires 150 manual operations — and for its traditional, durable Norwegian stitch construction. For the upcoming fall season, the brand has released new iterations of its William and Chambord shoes. The William, a timely double-monk strap version, provides a dose of business-casual versatility while retaining all of the time-tested qualities of the label, such as the use of premium leather and a rugged rubber sole stitched right through to the upper. The Chambord, a traditional walking shoe, features French seams and a similar rubber bottom. New for the season is the navy color for both pairs, a “nuit” colorway that veers the brand slightly further towards a more modern, on-trend aesthetic.
