To celebrate the launch of the new chapter of hugely popular and critically acclaimed video game franchise Destiny, entitled Destiny 2: Shadowkeep and released on October 1, French footwear brand Palladium has partnered with US video game developer Bungie to create a duo of Pampa Baggy boots reimagined for the deep space world of Destiny.
With exploration close to Palladium’s heart, partnering with world-renowned independent developer Bungie takes the French heritage brand out of Earth’s exosphere. As the official outfitter for Destiny fans’ ultimate space exploration, Palladium has developed new out-of-this-world footwear for adventures on this world as the Destiny saga takes explorers to the wild frontiers of future space.
Consisting of two Pampa Baggy styles—PAMPA BAGGY LUNAR CREW and PAMPA BAGGY TAIKONAUT—each pair features Destiny’s distinctive Tricorn symbol alongside lunar crew decals taken from abandoned research labs and colony ships of Destiny’s Golden Age. The boots also feature the logo of Destiny’s First Light lunar installation location in Chinese, with 曙光 (Shǔguāng), “Dawn” and “First Light” characters.
The Pampa Baggy Taikonaut boots are inspired by the in-game Taikonaut Exotic helmet as worn by the first Chinese aeronauts to colonize the Moon in Destiny’s universe. The boots are available in a “vaporous grey” colourway with “forged iron” and “matte gold” additions. The Pampa Baggy Moon boots offer a brighter palette similar to the colour of moon rock, aptly named “vapor,” and are emblazoned with Chinese decals from the abandoned research centres displaced across Destiny’s Moon.
Whether scouring the solar system to uncover relics of the Golden Age, discovering treasures and defeating formidable enemies, or forging new bonds of intergalactic friendship, the desire to travel the vast frontiers mapped out in the Destiny games reflect Palladium’s spirit to explore.
Each pair of Destiny Pampa Baggys is presented in packaging decorated with the celestial map and radials, which are part of Destiny’s distinctly “mythic science fiction” aesthetic.
From October 15th, Destiny and fashion enthusiasts have the chance to pre-order styles from the new collection.
The Palladium x Destiny collection is now available to pre-order on the Palladium e-store in limited quantities in the US and will be available to pre-order from October 18th in Europe. You can do this at the official website www.palladiumboots.com
Prices start at £105 / €119.95 / $140
