I personally love collaborations, taking a classic product and through a whole lot of discussing, drawing and designing, a whole new piece is born. Palladium and Bodega have joined forces to create these “Fisticuffs” from Palladium’s signature “Baggy” boot.
These boots are supposed to transport you back to a bygone era where men were men and arguments were settled with an upper cut worthy of a Duke. These themes are scattered throughout, from the herringbone pattern upper to the really nice deep chocolate leather, echoing back to Victorian formal dress. If you’re still not convinced of these hints, the tongue is embossed with “If you’re close enough to read this you’re already dead”. Subtle eh?
The blend of herringbone and chocolate leather is really nice and I feel these would compliment a fitting outfit nicely. I also love how robust the soles are looking, which really sets them apart from the likes of Converse.
Each pair is individually numbered with only 396 pairs available globally. Expect to see these in Hanon sometime this month.
