Palladium was created in France in 1927. At that time the brand manufactured tires for the army and invented a revolutionary process, the vulcanization of rubber and canvas. In 1947, Palladium opened their first shoe factory using the same principle. Solid, practical, durable and comfortable shoes, Palladium quickly carved a fine reputation. Today, Palladium has diversified and created PLDM, its casual footwear line. Maintaining Palladium’s values of quality and authenticity, PLDM styles reflect an original, urban design!
