Paraboot x and wander Collab Trekking Boot

French craftsmanship with an attention to detail of the likes only Japan can offer

When it comes to improving on classic designs and traditional styles, nobody does it better than the Japanese, and the Trekking Boot by outdoor outfitter and wander is a shining example of such. Hand stitched by French bootmaker Paraboot, the collaboration hiker strikes a beautiful balance between heritage and contemporary.

Avaialble in two distinct leather colorways, the Trekking Boot features a padded collar and beefed up midsole to make traversing uneven ground (aka going anywhere not paved) more comfortable. And to increase waterproofing, Paraboot's craftsmen used a traditional technique of using pine pitch to seal seems to ensure the hand stitched welt is water tight. (Side Note: these shoe laces are straight fire.)

Though released exclusively in Japan, the Trekking Boot is avaialble online from and wander (for roughly $600). So kick google translate into high gear and forget about making rent next month.
