Cervo Volante´s knee-high boots PARDIEL *, hand-made in Italy of wild deer leather, are a must in your wardrobe. Skins of dears, hunted in the Swiss Alps according to all the rules of sustainable hunting, have been processed without chemicals, reviving old know-how which was about to disappear. Technically complicated laced upper parts of the boots, which highlight the exquisite craftsmanship of the producer – a family-run shoe studio – are there not just for beauty, but give the boots a firmer fit if you wish. The laced upper part also emphasizes the resemblance to our signature – the hiker boot. We have deliberately avoided zippers and made the knee-high boots PARDIEL pull-on in an attempt to have as little easily breakable details as possible. The boot has 30 mm heel that provides just the right amount of lift without compromising comfort. The cushioned insole guarantees comfort for the whole day.
We are blowing our own trumpet here, but this silhouette has survived changing times and fashions. Today you do not need to mount a horse to wear a pair of riding boots. While choosing your pair of knee-high boots PARDIEL, just think where and how will you be wearing them for the next 15 years!
Cervo Volante deerskin shoes are designed and handcrafted by Piret Pupart at Silvano Sassetti in Monte San Pietrangeli, Italy. Welt sewn and with a Goodyear Flex cork sole for a soft roll.
The shoes are equipped with a fine anti-slip latex sole. Of course you can order the PARDIEL, as well as the VAL FLIN, the GOD GRISCH or for your husband the CURAGLIA as Cervo Volante special production with a leather sole. The best way is to contact us personally: firstname.lastname@example.org

* PARDIEL is an alpine area in the Sarganserland, Canton of St. Gall between Bad Ragaz and the peak of Pizol. The local hunting association has the same name and is famous for fostering local biodiversity. Some of our red deer hides come from Pardiel.
For a future beyond 2050
