Early next month, Salomon will begin releasing styles from its Spring/Summer 2021 Advanced collection. While the assortment consists of more than two dozen pairs of shoes, here we’re taking a look at our favorite colorways from the seasonal capsule.
The SS21 “Sportstyle” collection draws from Salomon’s extensive mountain sport archive, all while paying homage to the brand’s footwear roots. Designed for the everyday sportswear enthusiast, the shoes are geared towards comfort and control in contemporary environments.
We see new colorways and variations of classic Salomon silhouettes included for SS21, as the collection spans racing-specific models, hikers, post-sport shoes, and more. The first crop of SS21 Salomon Advanced footwear will become available on Salomon.com and in select Salomon stores in early February.
The new SS21 iteration of the XT-Wings 2 Advanced combines protection and stability with a lightweight construction. The seasonal colors pull inspiration from nature and its landscape, with the tan and black makeup being our favorite XT-Wings 2 Advanced offering. The clean scheme can be worn for various occasions, not exclusively for outdoor adventure.
Salomon explored the design lines of the XA-Pro Fusion Advanced for the new season. The sporty silhouette features a lightweight yet durable build, with a 3D Chassis for improved cushioning and stability, and a Contagrip outsole for added grip. This particular iteration comes in a predominantly white and black color combination, complemented with pops of purple and orange to offer a hint of color.
The XT-6 is one of Salomon’s most iconic silhouettes, designed for ultra-distance races in extreme conditions. Each season, the brand outfits the sneaker with a number of enticing colorways, and for SS21, our favorite is this blue and black iteration. Don’t think you have to be ripping up and down a mountain to wear these, though. You can pair them with some nice denim or other stylish trousers.
Another iconic Salomon shoe, the XT-4 Advanced is one of the brand’s most visually appealing trail running models year in and year out. For SS21, the midsole and outsole have been updated, while the upper incorporates TPU film on high abrasion resistant mesh for a more durable build. We’re a sucker for the gradient effect Salomon applies to some of the XT-4 Advanced colorways, as shown on the above pair.
As alluded to above, the XT-4 Advanced tends to be offered in Salomon’s most eye-catching colorways. This purple and pink iteration certainly falls into the category, as you’re sure to stand out whether wearing these on your next mountain adventure or walking throughout the city.
