Palladium

Palladium Logo
Palladium® was founded in 1920 to make tires for the fledgling 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 World War II, with aircraft manufacturing coming 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 as durable as their tires. In 1947 the legendary Pampa boot was born, and the functionality, comfort and durability were so outstanding that the French Foreign Legion adopted it for their own use. The Foreign Legion 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, 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!

They’re very lightweight, comfortable and extremely waterproof. The heel is a little bit stiff but there was no irritation/chafing even after several hours of wear.

These have to go back. They have no support at all and cut into foot in strange places.

I ordered these boots for my husband for his overseas trip and he already called me that they are so comfy and lightweight and even after long walks at airports he did not feel them on his feet. He absolutely loves them, he said.

I bought these to replace some worn out Palladiums that I LOVED (Flex Trng Camp Lo or something like that) but that appears to have been discontinued. These are similar in style but not even close to similar in comfort. They have no padding, which is especially noticeable in the heel area. I'm pretty sure I will get blisters if I keep these, but I just may because they are so cheap and I do like the style. speaking of cheap - it seems like Palladium has gone down hill A LOT quality-wise since I last purchased a little over a year ago :(

One of the most comfortable boots I've ever put on, right out of the box. Unfortunately, only the top two lace holes have metal eyelets. This makes getting the boots on and off a bit of a job, as you have to tighten and loosen each row of laces individually, every time. Hopefully the leather holes will hold up over time.

I'm giving a poor review because the shoes were too narrow for me, which makes them painful. I thought they'd be OK until I went for a walk, and then they're not OK, but too late to return. I have a pair of Palladium Pallabrouse (hightops) which I love. I thought these would be the same size and shape, but no, they are too narrow. Very sad. If they fit your feet, they will probably be great. I think my feet are a little wide, but medium width usually fits.

I grew up in the late 80' into the 90's, so Converse was my go to shoe. I wanted to try something new yet familiar. These are exactly what I wanted. I ordered the 8.5 and they fit exactly as they should. Brand new I was able to wear them over a busy road-trip weekend with no blisters or painful damage. I've already worn them with socks, and without, still no issues. They are incredibly comfortable and look absolutely kickass whether I am wearing jeans, leggings, even shorts. Very happy with my purchase.

I'm using these for my work as a furniture delivery guy, and they are just fantastic; the amount of traction i feel is second to none. They are lighter than my sneakers and aside from the top of the collar cutting into my leg I've never felt a better shoe. They remind me quite a lot of Chuck Taylors except better in every way, my feet don't ache after wearing them all day. I'm avoiding wearing them in the rain as they are canvas and not treated in the slightest for the kinds of puddles I have to traverse, but i'm strongly considering buying one of Palladium's waterproof models for those days when i can't escape a downpour. I only wish they had more desirable colors/patterns/blocking.

Palladium is the only shoe I have been eager to buy I have two pair and am here to buy the third. Both that I have are very stylish and feel and look great. It's a rare enough footwear that they draw a lot of attention. The only thing thing I don't like about the style is the front toe cover which I know is all part of the design and marketing style. But the over all appearance is fantastic enough to allow that misgiving. besides the purpose of the extra protection is exactly why it was used in military function. The history of this product is a great story to tell and keep a conversation alive talking about my footwear. I'm not the type to do or care about that but this does draw that kind of attention. So let me go so i can order my new pair of Palladium's.

I ordered a size larger by mistake and had to travel the next day. Even so, wearing them was so confortable that I kept them and have been using them a little over 2.5 years. No complains. The cords and soles are in excellent shape. Just a small tear in the fabric but given to an accident. Not giving 5 in style only because I thought they were darker and it's hard to match the color with the clothes I usually wear.

Shoes fit great but are a little stiff when you first get them. You should always wear high socks with these because the back of the shoe will scratch away at your skin. They feel very rugged and have more support than converse. The insole is a little firm for my liking but it has good support. I recommend lacing all the eyelets or they make an annoying clicking noise. Overall love the fit and look of the shoe just needs to be worn in a little.

Disappointed; the shoes are cute but not comfortable. I hoped to use them as lightweight hikers, thinking the canvas would be breathable. Unfortunately, the canvas is stiff and abrasive, not supportive, and I need plush socks to wear them comfortably. The sole is flat and doesn't provide lateral support to the ankle. OK to wear with jeans in the city but not much use otherwise.

Fit my expectation, love them. I used to wear these palladium shoes back to 1958 when I was a kid back to France.The color Sahara/ecru is out of stock, when you get them back in your inventory please let me know I would like to buy 1 more pair.

I love the look and feel/comfort of Palladium shoes, and these are no exception. A little on the warm side for summer (the Palladium Pallabrouse Baggy's canvas material is better for that), but great for moderate to cool/cold weather, and the color is really wonderful. And they accommodate orthotics, which is a big plus for me. I'll never use the bike seat cover, but I guess it's a plus if you would!
