Present in the French provinces since 1935 and originally from the south west of the country, the Pare Gabia brand reinvents the authentic and timeless espadrille season after season. Synonymous with French quality, Pare Gabia means "without equal" in Basque — a mighty claim! The brand chooses to honour its impeccable reputation by selecting only the best materials and perpetuating the tradition of hand-sewn craftsmanship for assembling the canvas and the sole. Acclaimed by the press, the Pare Gabia collections are aimed at fashionistas and all devotees of the dolce vita. When the sun comes out, what better to wear than the signature braided rope sole sandals, pumps, mules and open heels created by Pare Gabia. Soft, authentic canvas, matt suede and bright laminated leather are adorned with bows, flowers, straps and other essential, ultra-feminine details. Delicate, chic and all-natural, Pare Gabia's beautiful designs will be around for a long, long time to come!
