Take a walkabout through NYLON and we'll bet you our lunch money that you'll spot a staffer sporting Palladiums. The boot brand is an office favorite because its styles are stylish without being prissy and comfortable with being clunky.

And now it has just debuted a mini-collection of boots, Palladium Plaid, featuring both high and low-top cuts covered in, yep, checks. Along with the fact that the shoes have the same durable rubber sole as the original, we love the plaid's vintage, "I stole my dad's old Pendleton" vibe.

In other words, these are boots you can wear to stomp around the city and on your weekend hiking trips. And if they get dirty, well, that's even better.

Buy them at Palladium starting July 1.
