Revival of archive, resurgence of heritage, these are the themes of 2010 and onward to 2011, with exception of Palladium. After a deep root tapping the previous 2 seasons, the 100+ year boot maker is doing something quite different for Spring 2011 with the introduction of summer boots. As the label's Bernie Waters explained, boots have transcended beyond the original functionalism genre and into everyday wear. Why not just push that boundary a bit more and create a summer boots instead? Constructed in rip-stop nylon with moisture wicking character, the Palladium boots for summer is light (weight equals to some sneakers), with a seersucker lining for accent.
