Green is Paraboot’s signature colour, but it’s usually kept to just the woven tab. On these Michaels it covers the entirety of the leather uppers, too. The chunky rubber sole and waterproof Norwegian welt remain untouched, though, to ensure the model’s as ready for the city as the first versions were back in 1945.
This Paraboot model is made using waxy leather. When subject to differing temperatures the leather can sometimes 'bloom' resulting in a waxy deposit, this is entirely normal and can be polished away using a duster.
