Palladium by Neil Barrett Military Boots

Fashion designer Neil Barrett and Palladium have collaborated on the creation of a high-quality military boot, Palladium by Neil Barrett, revitalizing the classic canvas work shoes into leather. Palladium finds its roots in aircraft tire manufacturing in 1920′s France, shifting to boots for the French Foreign Legion in 1947. In the sixty-odd years since Palladium’s foray into footwear, the company’s cotton canvas, stone-washed casual boots have become fashion staples. Neil Barrett, a fourth-generation military tailor, developed this easily-worn boot over the last eight months. The Palladium by Neil Barrett boots come in three different materials—Waxed Leather, Waxed and Patent Leather, and Nabuk—and three different colors: black, beige, or black and white. The boots’ ultra-flexible sole is a single piece of rubber, enabling total movability as well as a noiseless footfall. Palladium by Neil Barrett will be available in Fall/Winter 2010.
