Salomon is already known for its catalog of well-received stylish, yet performance-oriented footwear. But now the brand is taking a step into community with its new collaboration with the Paris-based Afro-vegan restaurant, Jah Jah.
As a celebration of African and Caribbean communities, the collaboration dips the RX MOC 3.0 silhouette in shades of red, yellow and green. The three shades have been key in the African diasporic history as they represent ancestral bloodshed and sacrifice, wealth in diversity and tradition and growth that stems from the Earth. With many deep meanings embedded into the hues, they represent a feeling of reflection, pride and joy for those of African ancestry. The sock-like shoe’s upper appears in the three shades, while the sole appears in black.
The collection honors the feelings of pride fused with power in its celebration of culture. Take a look at the Jah Jah x Salomon RX MOC 3.0 collaboration in the gallery above, which is set to release soon.
