A contemporary take on the iconic Paris, the new PRSX (ParisX) abounds with energy, fine design and an elegant range of colours and materials. The idea of ‘lived-in’ as a synonym for craftsmanship can be seen clearly in the PRSX, thanks to the brand’s unique, patented foxing tape that wraps the sole. The shield sewn to the side of the upper and the PM78 lettering, a tribute to designer Philippe Model, who launched the brand in the French capital in 1978, emphasize the authenticity linked to the brand’s origin and identity. Tonal glitter on the toe and tongue accents the beige suede upper while contrast black leather embellishes the heel tab and eyestay. Waxed cotton laces. Sole height: 2.5 cm. Regular fit. Philippe Model Paris only uses Italian materials and leather. We call it ‘made with care in Italy’.
