With August right in front of us, and Fall knocking away at our doors, it’s time for us here at M.I.S.S. and you – our lovely readers, to get our closets ready for leaves, cool weather, and lots of amazing additions to our wardrobes. What better way than with the return of Palladium Boots, a brand which was once contracted by the French Foreign Legion in 1947, and is best known for its classic and timeless design.
With the relaunch, just in time for the Autumn/Winter season, Palladium has revamped their manufacturing process to make their boots more durable and comfortable than ever before, while still remaining true to the design of the original model. More affordable than previous models, this boot won’t hurt recession drained pockets.
“Today, with the economy as it is, and with trends being for simpler, utilitarian footwear, we believe the timing is perfect to re-launch Palladium,” says Barney Waters, VP of Marketing for Palladium Boots
Durable, affordable, and comfort are sure to make Palladium a staple in closets for men and women. All shoes have the same rubber toe cap outsole and come in three options for the upper portion: the low Pampa Oxford (about $50 – $75), Pampa High (about $55 – $85), and the high fold over Pampa Baggy ($70 – $110).
In addition there are three separate materials available as options as well: canvas, leather, and suede. A few more versions will be introduced for the winter season starting in October 2009 including shearling lined and patent leather styles. The shoes will be available at department stores and fine boutiques everywhere.
Make sure to take a peek at their extensive look book, it was produced by one of our ‘Women Making History’ Jasmine Takakinos. If you would like more information on the boots check out Palladium Boots online.
