Focusing on the concept of urban expedition, the new KENZO x PALLADIUM shoe collection brings two iconic French brands in tandem on the relaunch of a vintage unisex shoe: the PALLADIUM Pallashock by KENZO.
As a re-edition, the shoe honors the original collaborations of the two heritage brands under KENZO’s founder Kenzo Takada in the late 80s and early 90s.
Fusing their hefty 50- and 70-year respective histories to create the perfect seasonless item—a celebration of color, heritage and vitality—the PALLADIUM Pallashock by KENZO is a true archive shoe.
It was originally created by PALLADIUM in the early 50s as an outdoor boot. What’s the update? KENZO’s playful yet refined vision reimagines them as a hybrid style for intrepid urban expedition.
The PALLADIUM Pallashock by KENZO channels the headstrong spirit of today’s global explorers. The collaboration feeds into the idea of the bold and the audacious; connected adventurers and new urban leaders. An opportunity to create the unexpected, harnessing an unleashed spirit who dares to explore.
The PALLADIUM Pallashock by KENZO comes in two styles and multiple colorways with vintage logos, each instilled with the French houses’ flair for intrepid fun.
The result sees technical cuff boots and shoes in colorful yet practical nylon or quilted nylon with iconic vintage branding on the side, constructed on a low-tech retro hiking rubber shockwave outsole.
