Introduced in 1945 and still going strong, the Michael style is a classic from the French brand Paraboot. Using traditional hand-sewing techniques the result is high-quality and durable shoes. Crafted from leather with a moccasin upper and a genuine rubber sole, this shoe has a Goodyear welt in a ‘Norweigan’ construction. This means that the welt is attached with two visible lines of stitches, making the shoe even more resistant to both water and intense use. The shoe offers a sturdy, yet flexible comfort. These shoes are made of thick, high-quality calf leather – a natural material that breathes. If the shoes are not being used for a while, this might cause wax from the tannery process to come up to the surface. This is a natural reaction from the leather, but if the shoes are polished, they will be as new again.
