Offering a range of fashionable footwear for the urban explorer, Palladium combines authenticity with cutting-edge style.
Founded in 1920 as a tyre manufacturer for aircraft, the company turned to footwear after World War II, designing boots that were as hard-wearing as their tyres. Using their canvas and rubber resources, the boots were so comfortable and durable that they were adopted by the legendary French Foreign Legion.
In the 90’s, Palladium footwear was made popular by the grunge and rave scenes. In one year, the brand sold over one million pairs of boots.
In 2009, after a brief hiatus, Palladium relaunched their range of footwear aimed at the modern-day explorer, and has enjoyed phenomenal success ever since.
AGL became the Palladium distributor in 2011.
