For over 100 years the production of Paraboot shoes still remains in France as a matter of keeping the high quality and skill to a maximum. The world renowned shoe collection is known for the extreme durability and comfort to match.
The company motto is to build shoes that last any form of walk no matter how far. The company began in 1908 and the Founder Remy Richard-Ponvert started his quest to find only the best methods of construction.
The outdoor Paraboot collection is still made using the Norwegian Construction method and the smarter styles benefit from the Goodyear Construction. Both methods are world renowned and are classed as the best of the best in the shoe industry. These design processes results in a collection of footwear that is both high quality and long lasting, something that you always want when looking for shoes.
Remy Richard-Pontvert, who named the company, returned from a trip to America back in 1926 with shoes named overboots which featured rubber covers that were used to protect the shoes in wet weather. This allowed him the idea to sell the rubber shoes but with the latex imported directly from Brazil. He pioneered his own formula for the rubber, thus the brand Paraboot was born.
