Salomon Advanced, a subline that enhances existing silhouettes with performance-driven details, has just released a stealthy take on the XA-Alpine 2. Arriving in a Black/Magnet colorway, the boot-like model takes on a similar shape as Salomon’s past Alpine boot with TAKAHIROMIYASHITA TheSoloist.
Made to perform in wet and slippery conditions, the boot is made from durable textile and synthetics, and features a Contradrop outsole with mountaineering lug geometry, an asymmetrical front zipper, and Salomon‘s Quicklace system. Keeping the boot minimal is tonal branding printed in glossy letters across the heel and on the waterproof zipper. Those interested in copping a pair can find them now over at oki-ni for $292 USD.
