Palladium was founded in 1920 to make aircraft tyres for the aviation industry. In 1947, after the end
of WWII saw demand for tires dry up, Palladium put their canvas and rubber expertise to use by
making boots that were as hardwearing as their tyres. Palladium soon became outfitters of the
legendary French Foreign Legion with their classic canvas Pampa boot. Over 60 years later the
timeless design of Palladium’s signature Pampa boot is as relevant as ever and available once again
for explorers worldwide. For further information, please visit www.palladiumboots.com.
