Ever saw a shoe that was so nice and luxurious that you couldn’t ever bring yourself to wear it? If so, then chances are good that it probably looked something like the Alden #8 Parajumper Boots from Frans Boone. We’re serious, kids. These things look like they belong on the feet of a superhero.
What sets the Alden #8 Parajumper Boots apart from most footwear is the brown leather interior, the glitzy cordovan coloring which carries a rich, deep scarlet throughout the body of the shoe, and heavy duty sole and stitching that guarantees these are not coming apart. All this is accented by what appears to be a gun-metal gray set of strings that blends nicely with all the other moving parts.
