Pharrell for Palladium boots

Originally founded in 1920 to make tires for the fledgling aviation industry, Palladium have always had unique expertise. With aircraft manufacturing grinding to a halt at the end of WWII, they opened a plant in Pont De Cheruy, France, with the notion of manufacturing footwear with the durability and security of their tyres. In 1947, the legendary boot was born; today, the original design and utility are as relevant as they have ever been. Palladium have always considered “exploration and discovery” as their ethos, and so it seems fitting to kick off “Tokyo Rising” in such a pair.

Persistent challenges still lie ahead for Tokyo after the tragedy of 3/11. The city’s creative class, however, is not disheartened, and remain hell-bent on making sure that their hometown continues to thrive. Innovative, resilient, and original, there is no doubt that these very individuals who will define the future of Tokyo. Jumping at the chance to visit the metropolis that has always fascinated him, singer, songwriter and producer Pharrell Williams can now add “explorer” to his never-ending list of accolades. He has always been fascinated by Japanese culture, immersing himself in Tokyo’s arts and fashion communities, with the city having a major influence on his life as an artist and an individual.

Thus with a pair of Palladium boots, he embarked on the exploration of the city’s many facets.
