Copped a pair of Baggys yesterday, i already have an idea of what i want to do with them but i could use some extra inspo
Would have just checked the archive but warosu is dead
I really fucking want a pair of palladiums
But all the recent reviews say they fall apart and are garbage boots. But I literally cant find anything identical. Slim. Sidezip. Boots.
I just want them to be actually durable fuck.
The Leather ones dont have side zips do they?>>10845723
Theyve moved their factories all over in the recent decades.
The original French factory products were god tier, then they moved to srilanca or some shjit, quality was still there, Vietnam Im not sure but I think it was still "ok", Then they moved to china and now they dont last even a year. The general consensus is that they start tearing/ripping after a few months of good use.
i like them, they're comfy and look good. pic is mine
do they last at least as long as chucks?
i had a pair of chucks i beat so bad i literally wore through the sole. if the palladiums can handle at least two years of heavy wear like a pair of chucks then im sold. cant beat that for the $20 i paid for them
i actually continued to wear them after pic related
Mine got ripped apart at the back just above the heel. It wasn't even the seam that ripped, but the textile itself. I also hate the toecap and in hindsight I really regret copping them
I bought these in August 2014; they've held up so far.
I'm fucking pissed. I recently got a pair and the first time I wore them in the rain the color immediately began to come out. Its like they colored them with markers or something, and now there are these pale white spots all over them. When I buy a pair of boots I expect them to be able to take a bit of water, I live in California so its not like it was even raining that hard anyway
Now you're just pulling stuff out of your ass you faggot.
A couple of years ago Palladium's quality used to be pretty good, but they recently moved production to china, which pretty much fits the time around which their boots started falling apart after days of wear.
They aren't really flaps though, they just fold up into high top boots.
I dunno, the last pair I had lasted way longer than the average pair of sneakers. I'm pretty hard on shoes.
Yeah, from what I gather it's not so much that overall quality has gone to shit, but rather their quality control that has gone to shit.
Obviously you're more prone to find negative stuff on the internet because everyone whose boots break will rant about it on the internet, but most satisfied customers won't go and praise the shoe online.
When did you buy yours?
Got these about 2 months ago. Also, if other people's palladiums are breaking, it might have something to do with the different materials or a side zipper on other pairs. I just stuck with canvas.
palladiums are literally the only brand i've seen that people are always 50/50 saying it looks good or it looks bad
the IT guy is on vacation, no one knows for sure what's happening.
Most probably the server went out of HDD memory which caused the server to crash.
All of the data is backed up and the site should come back online.
In the meantime there's 2(or more?) archives of /fa/:

anon thanks for those links i wanted to check some stuff up since a few days ago, cool
Alright, just posting to settle this retarded bickering:
I've just hit the two-year mark for these and there was no tearing, sole wear-through, or "falling apart at the drop of a hat" in those two years. As you can clearly see from the photos, my pair is made in China. I did replace the original cotton laces with some shorter polyester ones. The original laces were too long and did eventually tear from excessive tightening. You can even see the frictional wear at the front of the ankle of the boot. Only recently, i.e. after two years, has the rubber began peeling from the canvas upper in the toe area.
Also, OP is a tard for mispelling palladium.
not the poster you replied to, but this happened to me too. Color came out a little bit on mine.
Baggy reflective, made in vietnam. It was the black one with the M3 reflective inside
