On Thursday, October 25, Paraboot inaugurated its new concept in Lyon.
On this occasion, the brand presented to the public rare and exceptional models from the private collection, usually kept at the headquarters.
These pictures take us back to the festive evening:
In 1869, Charles Goodyear Jr. (the son of Charles Goodyear, who had invented the rubber vulcanization process) filed a patent for a welt sewing machine. This technique, which is called "original Goodyear welt", develops from 1875-1876. However, it is often forgotten that in 1862, Auguste Destouy obtained a patent for a machine for sewing a leather sole using a curved needle.
For its 111th birthday, Paraboot has created a capsule collection of 8 models in limited series of 111 copies.
They will be available exclusively in our pop-up store in Paris, at 54 Rue Charlot, from 22 to 26 May 2019, and in our Seoul boutique, from 1 to 9 June 2019.
For the Spring/Summer 2019-season, Paraboot collaborated with YMC. The English brand worked around our Michael model, by playing with colors and materials.
To celebrate its 10th anniversary, GQ Magazine has created a special version of the Beaumont model in collaboration with Paraboot.
It will be on sale in a limited edition of 30 pairs in the GQ pop-up store at Bon Marché, Rive Gauche in Paris, from 2 to 23 November.
Paraboot and Arpenteur meet again for the Autumn-Winter 2018/19 season, around the Bergerac model.
Paraboot and Études renew their collaboration, this time around two models: Yosemite and Michael.
