I don't know much about Paraboot besides the fact they are an expensive French shoe brand, but I do know a damn good looking double monk strap when I see one. Paraboot's Vigny model is one of the better rugged double monks I have seen thanks to its Goodyear welted construction and double leather sole. I should also mention that one of the reasons these badboys cost $502 is due to Paraboot's required 150 manual operations it takes to make a pair of their shoes, which is also an incredibly aristocratic way of saying they are handmade. But then again, when you drop a half stack you probably want to know that kind of stuff. If you are thinking about copping, and why wouldn't you assuming you're not a poor bastard like myself, don't forget the sizes listed are British. I cannot think of a more handsome shoe to wear while beating the shit out of someone in the middle of a cobblestone street.
