After linking up with Stray Rats earlier this year, Carhartt WIP has continued its collaborative streak by partnering with Salomon. The new release sees a reinterpretation of the CSWP Shelter silhouette, a hard-wearing hiking boot silhouette that was reworked by Better™ Gift Shop back in 2020.
This collaboration mixes Carhartt WIP’s workwear and military-inspired aesthetic with Salomon’s technical expertise. The silhouette is fully waterproof, and sports a light insulation and enhanced grip, while its color palette features a combination of greens, grays and blacks. Other features include pared back branding — including a Carhartt WIP C logo on the heel — and footbeds printed with traditional Indonesian camouflage. The shoe is finished with ripstop detailing on the upper, referencing the material’s frequent use in Carhartt WIP collections.
