Come check out our new Palladium selections. This brand was originally founded in 1920 to make tires for a fledgling aviation industry. Tires were made tough and constructed by layering canvas bands underneath vulcanized rubber and soon the company’s expertise became so advanced that the majority of Europe’s aircraft were using only Palladium tires.
After World War II with aircraft manufacturing screeching to a halt the demand for tires decreased dramatically. Palladium decided to open a plant in Pont De Cheruy, France and started producing footwear that was as hard wearing as their tires. In 1947, the legendary Pampa boot was born. The shoes functionality, comfort and durability were again, so outstanding that the French Foreign Legion adopted it for their use. The Foreign Legion truly put the boot to the test in the harsh desert conditions of North Africa and throughout the rugged terrain of the Atlas Mountains.
Today the original design using classic lines and time tested utility are as relevant as ever. With over 60 years of authenticity, modern manufacturing, premium chosen materials and cutting edge styling Palladium boots are ready to help you explore your street, your city or the world and available now at Lavish&Squalor.
