Palladium

       

 

In 1920, Palladium manufactures aircraft tires to support the needs of the growing aviation industry. By layering canvas bands under vulcanized rubber tires, Palladium introduces a next-level technology that positions the brand as the largest aircraft tire supplier in Europe. As World War II ends and the demand for aircraft tires decreases, Palladium uses its canvas and rubber resources to open its first footwear factory in Pont-de-Chéruy, France. Palladium used their expertise to make boots that were as hard wearing as their tires. The boots were so comfortable and durable that the legendary French Foreign Legion adopted them. In 1960, Palladium is widely adopted by explorers in Europe as the footwear of choice for extreme conditions. French volcanologist and geologist Haroun Tazieff even wore them throughout his volcanic expeditions! Discovered by the grunge and rave scenes, the iconic Pampa boot becomes a fashionable look on a global scale in the 90’s.
