Palladium Original Boot was founded in 1920 after World War II, with aircraft manufacturing screeching to a halt, the demand for tires decreased dramatically. Palladium Original Boots then decided to open a plant in Pont De Cheruy, France, to start producing footwear that was as hard wearing as their tires.
In 1947 the legendary Palladium Pampa Hi Boot was born, and the functionality, comfort, and durability were so outstanding that the French Foreign Legion adopted it for their use. The Foreign Legion put the boot to the test in the harsh desert conditions of North Africa, and throughout the rugged terrain of the Atlas mountains.
Today, Palladium take the original Pampa Hi boot to new levels drawing inspiration from the espadrille using 100% jute in the foxing of the Palladium Slim Snaps which will become a new staple in any spring wardrobe. Palladium have also revamped the classic Pampa Hi using Acid washed canvases to produce a unique distressed look great for the chino’s brimming in the wardrobe…….
