I wasn't expecting to like this boot as much as i do. it fit so perfectly out of the box, didn't need to be broken in at all. i replaced the insole because i dont care for the flat type of sole canvas shoes tend to have. they look amazing. theyre such a versatile boot, i do yard work in them, i go for long walks in them with no pinching or uncomfortableness, and i use them at work where i stand in the same place for hours. theyre the perfect shoe for me. i haven't gotten to the point where they're wearing out so no comment on how durable they are over time.
After only three days, these boots are very nicely broken in!
Palladium boots are widely issued to the French Foriegn Legion and the Israeli Defense Forces. I can see why! For an inexpensive pair of simple canvas boots, they are comfortable and durable. This is great footwear for hot weather, exactly what I needed, exactly what I was looking for. Like most boots, they need a breaking-in period, and that didn't take long. They are much more comfortable than leather boots, when the temperature outside is above 90.
However, these boots may not be comfortable for everyone. They are well-made for the simple footwear that they are, but some wearer's may need some manner of cushioned insoles for better support. I did, and now they feel better. After wearing them all summer, they are still excellent in terms of breathable footwear, ...but they get rather-UN-comfortable if you have to walk for any extensive length of time. This is too bad, as I like Palladium boots, but some improvements ARE needed in support of the feet inside them.
I still have and wear converse from 40 years ago they are good the new ones aren't poor quality cheap material, now to these boots first I oardered these on the 14th and got them on the 16th thanks to amazon, the boots are perfect in every way there's nothing like canvas for comfort the size was right on and what a great idea for the sole these boots as soon as I end this review I'm going to buy anouther pair or two and I will tell everyone I can about how good these are for everything I need unlike converse the left shoe looks like the right shoe the laces are nice and straight good quality control all in all these are the best boots I've found especially for such a reasonable price.
Palladium boots are my favorite. They fit true to size and require no break in. They look great and are very robust. My friend liked mine so much they ordered a pair for themselves! These boots feel like they were custom made just for me, I love walking and hiking in them.
