WAYS TO WEAR: PALLADIUM

A quick lesson in dressing your feet.

70 years of Palladium, but how do you wear yours? Once the uniform of the legendary French Foreign Legion, the brand was quickly adopted by professional explorers across the globe​ and in the late 80s its cult status arrived when the boots became a firm fixture of the unofficial uniform claimed by the underground’s best dressed.
 
A favourite of the contemporary fashion crowd (see also pop stars, street style personalities, and ASOS customers), in its anniversary year Palladium boasts a tidy 107,000 fans on Instagram and an AW17 collection that’s been giving us all the feels since we first caught a glimpse – primarily hardcore aesthetic lust.
 
With such a pretty monumental history behind it (the French volcanologist and geologist Haroun Tazieff was partial to a pair back in the 60s, while the Pampa style gained iconic status amongst the grunge and rave scenes during the 90s, picked up by those who frequented Manchester’s Hacienda and more), we copped some of our faves and played dress up.

White denim, cream knits and a yellow nail: the PALLABROUSE HIKR LP Boot is the kind of footwear that demands the cool aesthetic Northern Europe serves up so well.

Nicely 90s

You don’t need a festival or a rave to make like it’s 1992, but a pair of solid boots to carry you through? Preferably. The PALLABOSSE OFF LEA Boot makes for a grand choice.

Easy Like Sunday Morning

Not sure about you but our ideal Sunday would literally be spent in a cosy tracksuit and a statement scarf, in and amongst nature. The PALLABROUSE HIKR LP Boot is the only accompaniment, frankly.

Suited, Booted

There are those that wouldn’t dream of matching their suit with anything other than a pointed toe and a kitten heel – more fool them. The PAMPA SOLID RANGER TP Boot is the dream as far as marrying your aesthetic maturity with the rest of your wardrobe goes.
