A contemporary take on the iconic Paris model, the 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, emphasis the authenticity linked to the brand’s origin and identity. In charcoal grey flocked, laminated suede with contrasting white leather heel tab. The toe, tongue and “Philippe Model Paris” shield are in tonal suede. Branded cotton laces. Vintage-effect brushed rubber sole, 2.5 cm high. Regular fit. Philippe Model Paris only uses Italian materials and leather. We call it ‘made with care in Italy’.
