Editor’s Notes: Salomon and Avnier have come together on a special-edition collaborative Speedcross 4 sneaker for the Winter season.
Done up in a simple black and white colorway, the sneaker is decked out in geometric lines that represent the duality between first and last, archaic and modern, reality and artificial.
The two brands chose the Speedcross 4 because of the model’s ability to blend into both an extreme sport setting and an urban environment.
With trail sneakers — specifically Salomon kicks — gaining more traction on the fashion week circuit, it comes as no surprise that the trail experts at Salomon have one eye on the streets and continue to blaze forward with fashion collaborations. However, anyone who has owned a pair of Salomons will attest that the brand never sacrifices function for form, which is perhaps another reason the sneakers are so popular across subcultures.
