COMME des GARÇONSFall/Winter 2021 runway show was clouded in smoke, hiding its Salomon Sportstyle collaboration from the eagle-eyed — but now the duo has given us a better look at the just-dropped three-piece collection.

Comprising two XA-Alpine models and one Cross silhouette, the collaboration combines Salomon’s technical aesthetic with CdG’s minimalistic black-and-white simplicity and palette, making for a range of shoes that are just as good for mountain trekking as they are for stunting at fashion week.

The XA-Alpine earns its name thanks to technology and stylistic choices that are backed up by alpine running necessities, such as control, stability, support, and protection. The high-top pair is available in black or white and feature a protective outer layer, while grip comes courtesy of Contagrip with lugs that are spaced out for optimum levels of control across all kinds of loose terrains. Naturally, Salomon’s moniker graces the throat of the outer layer, while COMME des GARÇONS has been printed on the mid-panel in bold contrast block capitals.

As for the Cross, CdG has fitted it with a specially-designed houndstooth ankle gaiter that’s combined with a black Matryx upper, which is breathable but simultaneously capable of molding to fit your foot as precisely as can be. Rounding out this pair is even more prominent branding and a Contagrip TA outsole that’s decorated with specialized lug geometry.

Both styles are currently available to purchase from COMME des GARÇONS and Dover Street Market stores across the globe, and are set for a wider online release via DSM’s website come October 28.

In other news, the UNDERCOVER x sacai Nike LDWaffle pack is officially releasing.
