By now, Paraboot is a mainstream shoe presence. The famous French shoe brand had its first renaissance in Japan some five or six years ago and the shoes trickled slowly to the New World.
While it is best known for its chunky pseudo-formal shoes, Paraboot’s Barth Cerf shoes take a different tack. These hand-sewn boat shoes look much more like something from Sperry than the brand’s typical pieces. The shoes come in a forest green and a rich brown and while neither is made in France, the Paraboot name ought to signify a certain tier of quality. Usually Norwegian-welted, these summer shoes are blake-stitched and come with piped seams and two eyelets.
We may not be able to do much this summer without widespread vaccinations, but you could isolate on a boat… and wear some nice new shoes while you do it.
