Fresh from taking Universal Works’ Fall/Winter 2021 collection for a countryside spin, Cumbria-based retailer Working Class Heroes heads back to the wilderness to put Salomon’s trail-ready footwear through its paces.

The store — which has also given Aries, Uniform Bridge and Butter Goods a whirl in recent months — now takes Salomon’s XT-6 to the hills, to test out the lightweight trail-ready sneaker.

Recently unveiled in colorways like “Safari”, “Evening Primrose”, “Night Sky” and “Madder Brown” by Salomon themselves, the XT-6 boasts the brand’s epochal Quicklace system, besides a lightweight mesh upper that’s laminated with TPU film.

Sat atop an EVA midsole with a ContaGrip rubber tread and a heel clip, the sneaker is rounded off with branding on the heel and toe, with logos then woven into the tongue.

Head over to the Working Class Heroes webstore to take a look at its full Salomon offering.

In other sneaker news, Nike has unveiled its newest BE-DO-WIN lifestyle silhouette.
