They Said It Right

"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, and Kitson stores." - Hypebeast
