The Dockside collection is Sebago’s iconic boat shoe collection updated with seasonal colours.

Palladium Launch Pallaphoenix Flame
Original urban explorer brand Palladium launches its SS19 collection with a range that ticks all boxes when it comes to trend, comfort and functionality, and updates its classics with the latest technology and also introduces brand new styles and archival styles updated for the modern commuter.

A tribute to Palladium’s sporting legacy, Phoenix was the name of Palladium’s sports sub-brand in the 1970s, with Flame the brand’s signature sports shoe. Reinterpreted as a sneaker, it carries the aesthetics of its predecessor: Flame shaped stripes in red and blue appear as an ode to the French tricolour flag which also features in a more literal and subtle way on the sides of each shoe. The comfort credentials are amplified by the use of a lightweight outsole. Available in either lo-top or hi-top silhouettes, Flame arrives in a kaleidoscope of colour combinations from signature tricolour to various hues of grey.
