Salomon's trail runners could easily veer into the questionable territory of your dad's favourite hiking shoes. Fortunately, however, the French brand has long been able to avoid that realm thanks to the juxtaposition of simplistic colour palettes with technical design cues.
A perfect example of the formula is Salomon's upcoming colab with BEAMS, which sees the Japanese heavyweight bringing its collaborative know-how to the XA PRO 3D GTX. Details like the silhouette's usual 3D Advanced Chassis, GORE-TEX membrane, and unique speed lacing setup remain intact, while BEAMS have hit the design with a timeless white/grey combo.
Naturally, the colab doesn't just rock your basic white/grey look, instead mixing things up by opting for a symmetrical execution across the left and right sneakers.
The colab officially hits BEAMS on September 13.
