I owned these boots for about 4 - 5 months before I ever wore them not only because the weather wasn't really appropriate at the time. But they looked so dope but I just never really had a proper angle on how to incorporate them into my person style. I just knew they were different from any boot I've really owned. To be honest I never really heard much about Palladium boots before hand I knew what they were but there wasn't much of a buzz. The first time I saw a pair was outside of a community event and a friend of a friend had a pair on, since that day I always kept my eyes peeled for my own and eventually found myself a pair. But I did a bit of a background check on the history of the company and it turns out they have by far carry one of the most intriguing stories.

Palladium was founded in 1920 to make tires for fledging aviation industry. Tires were made by layering canvas bands underneath vulcanized rubber. Palladium's expertise was so advanced that soon the majority of Europe's aircraft were using Palladium Tires.
After Wold War II, with the aircraft manufacturing screeching to a halt the demand for tires decreased dramatically. Palladium decided to open a plant in Pont De Cheruy, France, to start producing footwear that was hard wearing as their tires.
Today, the original design, classic lines and time tested utility are as relevant as they have ever been. Combining over 60 years of authenticity with modern manufacturing, premium materials and cutting edge styling, Palladium boots are ready to help you explore your street, your city, or the world.
Tiago: Temperature is really starting to kick in with a fierce frigid shield, winter is clearly knocking at the door and I really needed a new pair of boots to deal with our Canadian weather. However, I was looking for a boot with a more city/urban feel something with quality, style, comfort, and not too heavy on the feet.
Palladium produces all of those criteria's, I opted for the Pampa Hi Leather model in black. The comfort of this model is beyond undenialable, the price versus quality is unbeatable, and the style is extremely flattering and produce versatility.
Im rockin' Palladium boots with pride all over Montreal.
