Palladium Boots has teamed up with UK-based fashion label Maharishi on a new collaboration for Fall/Winter 2011. The Maharishi Tactical, an update on Palladium’s Pampa Tactical boot, was inspired by ‘special forces and survival’ to compliment Maharishi’s Fall/Winter 2011 runway collection. The Maharishi Tactical is technical yet simplified – the boot is made with a combination of rubberized leather, ballistic nylon, reflective paneling and a Dri-lex moisture wicking lining, leaving behind unnecessary add-ons for a completely clean design. The standout feature is the incorporation of Schoeller Dynatec – a stunningly reflective Swiss-made textile made for harsh conditions, which is used in the back panels of the boot. The fabric uses a special reflective thread combined with a complex weave, providing superior durability and extensive protection in poor visibility conditions. When light shines on the Schoeller paneling, millions of tiny glass beads work to reflect the light back. This retro reflection enables the fabric to be seen for up to 100 meters away at all times of day. The boot is finished with a padded inside collar featuring Maharishi’s iconic branding. Retail for this new release is set at $185 USD, with availability through Palladium stores, Palladiumboots.com and Kitson stores.
