When Palladium was started in 1920 it was to deliver tires to an rapidly expanding aeroplane industry. Palladium's skill showed to be supreme and soon every European aeroplane was landing on Palladium tires. After WWII the demand for tires dropped and Palladium decided to use their experience and knowledge to make boots instead. In 1947 the by now legendary Pampa boot was introduced and the superb durability and comfort made it the choice of footwear for the Foreign Legion. Since then Palladium has proved time and time again that their material stamina is only matched by their everlasting aesthetics.
