Paraboot Thiers Sport Lisse America
An original model from the sixties, this lightweight shoe has found its way back to the spotlight thanks to a number of celebrities and regular customers who have brought the shoe back to the forefront.
The upper is fixed directly to the outsole by means of an assembly stitching that runs through the outsole.
In 1858, a young employee from the sewing machine manufacturer Singer makes an invention that is a small revolution in the world of footwear. It democratizes the shoe sewn on leather sole and meets with great success.
The Blake welt models are light and flexible, and even more on a rubber sole. The visual of the shoe is finer than a Goodyear construction. However, from a technical point of view, durability and impermeability are less than with a Norwegian or Goodyear construction.
Our soles and heels are always made with the same vulcanization blends and processes as originally used in the long history of Paraboot.
Rubber develops the best of its physical and mechanical properties, namely comfort, flexibility and resistance to wear, even if the latter also depends heavily on the use and the wearer of the shoes.
Our rubber blends come from France, and are vulcanized on our presses in our Saint Jean de Moirans workshop.
