Quilted Leather Mules

Paraboot and The North Face Collaborate on a Pair of Leather Mules

— October 4, 2022 — Fashion
Paraboot and The North Face are launching a new limited edition mule in order to celebrate the unique aesthetic and creativity of both brands. The shoe features a matelassé full grain leather upper that is accentuated by a hand-crafted vulcanized rubber outsole and elastic collar. The uppers feature The North Face’s signature quilted design along with the brand’s logo at the medials. A green Paraboot tab rounds off the shoe.

Paraboot commented on the collaboration, saying: “The two brands deliver high performance and striking fashion, encompassing the coexistence of comfort and style. [...] The limited-release mule combines timeless designs and premium materials in a unique collaboration for 2022.”

Despite its predicted popularity, Paraboot has confirmed that this footwear silhouette will not be released to the public. Interested parties can view the mule online.
