Paris Texas

Versatile, chic and playful are precisely the aesthetics Paris Texas embodies. Exactly like the brand’s name suggests, the contrast and embracement of both elements: the elegance of Paris and the boldness of Texas, are reflected in its design. They are well-formed into the iconic Paris Texas we see today by the hand of the Italian craftsman.

Launched in 2015 by the two sisters Annamaria and Margherita Brivio in Italy, Paris Texas has become a footwear phenomenon, loved by many. The colours, the silhouette and versatility hit just the right spot of what we need in a pair of boots.

Paris Texas’ knee-high boots collection offers many options, satisfying any look you desire, from modern to classic, from youthful to luxurious. The brand also puts a lot of spotlight on details. There are not only the familiar patterns, faux croc skin and snakeskin leather or suede, but also many eccentric colours and embellished decor gracefully placed into the design.

We say Paris Texas knee-high boots are the must-have for your winter wardrobe.
