It’s been a good year for Palladium, making a very welcome comeback into the scene. If you still need convincing of their acceptance into streetwear, how does a collab with Stüssy Deluxe sound?
You may have seen sneaky images of these cropping up online from recent trade shows, but we can officially give you the world exclusive on these bad boys! Taking Palladium’s iconic Pampa Boot, lopping off an inch and creating a luxury Mid version, Stüssy have managed to put buckets of character into these whilst keeping the Palladium vibe as strong as ever.
Made from waxed canvas on the upper and premium suede on the eyelet stay, counter and tongue, these boots stink of luxury. The addition of the heel loop, 2 pairs of laces, leather covered PU sock liner and a full leather lining also helps with the luxury theme. Branding is kept subtle and to maximum effect with a premium suede embossed Palladium badge on the inner side panel, an embossed Stüssy emblem on the heel, collaborative gold branding on the insole and of course the Stüssy Deluxe tongue tab.
If it isn’t already plain to see, this is a serious collaborative pack, making for 3 very stylish mid-boots that will break necks whilst having the ability to go unnoticed. Fresh.
Available from specialty Stüssy Deluxe and Palladium stores from 18th September. Expect to see these on the feet of some of the more stylish heads.
