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, emphasize the authenticity linked to the brand’s origin and identity. In silver glitter fabric with a contrasting rear black suede insert. Fuchsia leather heel tab, leopard print pony hair tongue and toe. Black glitter cotton laces. Sole height: 2.5 cm. Vintage-effect brushed rubber sole with laminated inserts. Regular fit. Philippe Model Paris only uses Italian materials and leather. We call it ‘made with care in Italy’.
