Paraboot Men's Bahamas/ Marine Marron - Lisse América
Simple piped seam Loafer, without saddle strap.
Unlined model, Blake stitching, on a genuine rubber sole.
This shoe features Blake stitching, also known as the sewn-through technique. In 1858 the young shoemaker Lyman Reed Blake invented this process while working for the sewing machine manufacturer Singer. It brought greater lightness to the shoe as well as elegnace and flexibility.
Blake stitch construction - For more flexibility and lightness…Principle
The upper is fixed directly to the outsole by means of an assembly stitching that runs through the outsole.
The Blake welt models are light and flexible, and even more on a rubber sole. The visual of the shoe is finer than a Goodyear construction. However, from a technical point of view, durability and impermeability are less than with a Norwegian or Goodyear construction.
- Plain leather - Homogeneous skin pressed with a smooth, warm plate.
- Genuine rubber sole - Our soles and heels are always made with the same vulcanization blends and processes as originally used in the long history of Paraboot.
Rubber develops the best of its physical and mechanical properties, namely comfort, flexibility and resistance to wear, even if the latter also depends heavily on the use and the wearer of the shoes.
Our rubber blends come from France, and are vulcanized on our presses in our Saint Jean de Moirans workshop.
