Originating as a rubber tyre manufacturer for the aviation industry in 1920’s. The label quickly became the largest manufacturer of aviation tyres in Europe becoming well known for its production process which involved layering canvas underneath vulcanized rubber. After the end of World War II, and the decline in demand for aviation tyres, Palladium decided to put its expertise and resources into footwear and opened its first footwear factory in Pont-de-Chéruy, France. Making boots that were as hard wearing as its tyres, the footwear produced was quickly adopted by the French Army. Later Palladium became the footwear of choice for explorers and mountaineers including the legendary Haroun Tazieff.
In the 90’s the label made its way into streetwear fashion becoming popular amongst the grunge and rave scenes of the decade. Staying dedicated to its roots by mixing up its aesthetics to inkeep with an urban explorer ethos, its manufacturing process has now been developed to include the use of modern fabrics and materials, building collections of boots that remain on-trend and to the point.
