About Palladium

It was after World War II, and soldiers from around the world were joining forces with the elite french foreign legion to test their courage through mud, sand, and brush. With their mottos "Legio patria nostra"—"The legion is our country", Palladium answered the call for a shoe that was as tough as its members, creating the Palladium Pallabrousse boot in 1947 and later the Pampa in 1949. They were comfortable, they were resistant, and they made history as part of the uniform for one of the world's most legendary forces.

For more than 70 years, the brand has been making footprints in history as the trusted choice for explorers of all stripes. As athletes play faster, artists dream bigger, and brave citizens fight for justice and a freer world, we're on the side of those who want to challenge the status quo. From the artist's studio to underground raves, from the battlefield to the frontiers of scientific discovery — ever since making our first pair of boots, Palladium has stayed at the heart of the action, serving bold individuals who dared to reshape our world.
