Where better to source some sturdy, stylish Alpine hiking boots than the Alps? Paraboot have been crafting rubber-soled boots in France for over 100 years, and it shows: the level of quality and craftsmanship on display is next level, as these Avoriaz hikers aptly demonstrate. The expected features of a classic hiking boot are all present – one-piece
wraparound upper, Goodyear welted traction sole, speed hook lacing – but elevated above pure utility by the supple scotch-grained leather. Plus they’re in the perfect shade of tan to pair with denim or ecru trousers for the true “Tyrolean Paninaro” look (yes, that’s surely a thing). Win-win.
