A Guide to Paris Texas Boots

Paris Texas boots have become a fall-winter staple—they’re a refreshing take on both versatile AND statement footwear

As the name suggests, Paris Texas is a label rooted in juxtapositions. Born in Italy by sister duo Annamaria and Margherita Brivio, the brand takes glamour cues from the sassy rodeo style of the American West and fuses it with French and Italian refinement.

The resulting collection of Made-in-Italy tall boots, short boots, sandals, and mules feels every bit as playful and lighthearted as the name might suggest. And, the collection is crafted in a kaleidoscope of grained and stamped leathers. Faux crocodile, faux snakeskin, and smooth calfskin come in cheerful colors like bottle green, chestnut brown, and electric blue.

Of course, black, white, and gray are options too.

Our friend and italist ambassador Corina is a Paris Texas boots fanatic—she is pictured here and often on Instagram wearing various models from Paris Texas—so we reached her to get her take on the label:


Paris Texas boots are the best value on the market, in my opinion. I love the diversity of colors and textures—literally they come in the most beautiful vibrant colors—so fashion forward.

They stand out every time I wear them. They empower a woman because they’re very sexy boots while also being very comfortable to walk in.

Beauty, style, and comfort!
