  • Explore Your City: Seoul

    Palladium Boots has always pushed the rugged form factor of its footwear, putting them on the feet of prominent influencers in its global Explorer Series as they uncover hidden gems in their own cities. In this continuation of the series, we follow b-boy Bruce Lee – a heavyweight in the South Korean b-boy scene – as he takes us to places that are tranquil and scenic, modern and traditional, and places that have simply been lost in the eddies of the frenetic, bustling metropolis that is Seoul. First is an abandoned, half-finished building that Lee wanders into, offering him a quiet space to warm up in the morning sun with his Pampa Hi-Cuffs. After following a railroad track, he arrives at the redeveloped urban oasis of Cheonggyecheon River, where he changes into his MA-1 Baggy Zip boots before breaking out some moves in the middle of the stream. As the day progresses, Lee finds himself in front of the historic Gwanghwamun Palace, his fluid motions providing a perfect antithesis to the stately demeanor of the palace gates. Finally, Namsan Mountain provides a panoramic place from which to end the day, as Lee surveys the city that has served as his stage.
