Stylist Notes. Founded by Remy Richard-Pontvert over 100 years ago, specialist workers have been cutting, sewing and fashioning leather shoes with knowhow passed down many generations. Made using the best leathers around, most of which are tanned in France using techniques, such as Goodyear welting, Paraboot has been able to deliver quality long lasting walking shoes for decades. The genuine rubber soles are still moulded in their own workshops in the French Alps. With no fewer than 150 operations required to produce their shoes, this makes Paraboot an outstanding product, one that's made in France, too. The Pacific Sport sandal is carefully hand-crafted in France by artisans using the finest materials around. A long-standing member of Paraboot's more sporty line, the Pacific is an ideal sandal for the summer ahead thanks to the supple leather upper atop a lightweight and flexible rubber outsole. Last but not least, the footbed has been given a a leather cushion for optimum comfort for those long summer walks.
