Palladium's latest collaborative boot updates a classic with reflective tech
Pairing an expert in military style with specialists in combat-level functionality, Palladium's cobranded boot with London-based fashion label Maharishi is one to keep in mind this fall. The Maharishi Tactical, inspired by "special forces and survival," will be replacing my go-to inclement-weather boots since a recent wear test proved just how great they are.
Rubberized leather and ballistic nylon give the boot it's distinct "tactical" look while Dri-lex lining wicks away moisture, keeping your foot firmly in place. Adding a tech touch to the clean aesthetic, Swiss-made Schoeller Dynatec on the boot's back panel provides highly-visible reflectivity in harsh weather conditions. The woven fabric shines with the strength of a million tiny glass beads, capable of being seen from up to 100 meters away in all light conditions.
To keep the aesthetic clean, nearly all branding is restricted to the inner. Here you'll find Maharishi in bright bold lettering printed on the inside of the padded collar of each boot. The Maharishi Tactical boot is now available at Palladium stores and online for $185.
