Salomon‘s XT-6 was built to be a highly functional hiking and trail running shoe, but its technical features and eye towards uncompromising performance have made it a popular choice for casual wear as well. Now, the boundary-defying hiker/runner/lifestyle favorite is set to release in a new gray, blue and gold colorway that boasts appealing colorblocking.
Uppers are made of a wolf gray mesh — that, granted, does look light blue in some of the photos above — and overlaid with taped cream and navy seams. These seams add Salomon branding on both the heel and forefoot, while also serving as eyestays for the winch lacing system and providing extra durability on the toebox. A multi-color badge runs up the throat under the laces, and the tongue offers a small mesh pocket to tuck the fit system into. Down below, trim foam midsoles are presented in cream and housed in a gold TPU plastic cage for durability. A streak of ocean blue foam separates midsoles from uppers, and black lugged outsoles round off the look.
The Salomon XT-6 in gray, blue and gold will release via atmos on July 30 and then see a global release in August. Its MSRP is set at a tax-included ￥27,500 JPY (approximately $251 USD).
