Michael Bride - Lisse Marron Brown
Paraboot's iconic Michael, but with a twist. Just like the original, this Michael is a derby, but in place of the laces, they feature a belt strap across the top.
The rest is all classic Michael. They're leather-lined for extra comfort and breathability. The genuine rubber sole is attached with Paraboot's classic Norwegian welt, a hand-sewn technique in which the shoe's upper is fixed to the sole with an assembly insole using a welt and two visible lines of stitches. This welt construction is strong and flexible, making the shoes more comfortable, waterproof, and durable. The Norwegian welt also makes it possible to resole your Michaels, so you can wear them for many years, and even pass them down through the family.
The Michael was created by the second generation of the Richard-Pontvert family, who founded Paraboot in 1908, and marked the birth of Michael Richard in 1945. It's still hand-sewn in France nearly 80 years later.
