Exhibitors Spotlight:
Edition 100
As it enters its 113th year, French shoemaking titan Paraboot makes no compromise on quality

Exhibitors Spotlight focuses on a selection of brands exhibiting at this year's Pitti Uomo, showcasing their upcoming collections and special upcoming projects.

Versatile, resistant, and timeless footwear has been a key trend of the season, with a variety of new and old players placing the focus on style coupled with endurance, performance and compliance with the industry’s increasingly unanimous stance on sustainable standards and methods of production.
If durability fused with aesthetic appeal is one of this season’s fundamental footwear guidelines, high-end shoemaker Paraboot has certainly lived up to the challenge. Founded in 1908 by Richard Pontvert, the French brand held its 112th anniversary celebration in 2020, demonstrating a solid history of commitment to quality, timelessness and trend-setting.
Headquartered in the French region of Isère, Paraboot has devoted the past century to sourcing and working with the best materials, finessing a now-famous DNA of quality, adaptability, and craftsmanship. Today, the brand’s manufacturing methods have not changed and Paraboot shoes are still made from the best European leathers, tanned the old-fashioned way, thus infusing each product with a quaint yet contemporary, and lasting appeal.
