Parisian boutique The Broken Arm and the outdoors-centric footwear label Salomon have a longstanding relationship, and now the duo has come together once again for another vintage throwback, delivering the XT-Quest 2.

This traditional hiking style is served up in a muted palette of tan, khaki, and black, with the former appearing in nubuck as per original early 2000s hiking sneakers. Khaki tones decorate the underlayers of mesh and structural elements on the upper, specifically areas that are used to keep the laces in place, as well as the tongue and mesh collar, while black leather hits up the rear alongside orange Salomon branding, and another touch of black shows up on the toe, this time around appearing as a rubber toe cap.

All of this ruggedness is complemented by the technical rope lacing system that’s secured using metal eyelets, as well as the Contagrip sole unit which provides the XT-Quest 2 with enough impact absorption, protection, and cushioning to keep you comfortable on all manners of hikes.

Limited to just one pair per person, The Broken Arm’s Salomon XT-Quest 2 comes with a special map that’s been made exclusively for this collaboration, aimed to help you “imagine your dream hikes.” Take a closer look at the pair above, and purchase the sneaker from The Broken Arm’s shop in Paris or online for $226.45 USD while stocks last.

In other news, New Balance has dropped a premium “Gold”-toned Made in U.S.A. 992.
