Children of the Discordance, COSTS and Salomon Link Up for Ornate XT-6 Colab

When Hideaki Shikama's Children of the Discordance revealed its SS23 ​'AREA AREA' collection, GORPcore lovers and Japanese fashion stans alike drooled over its bold patterns and unique tailoring, but for footwear lovers, one item shined the brightest: a new take on Salomon's popular XT-6. A three-headed collaboration between CotD, fellow Japanese label COSTS and Salomon, this special XT-6 adds an element of futuristic techwear into the wide slate of 1990s inspirations seen across the 'AREA AREA' offerings.

Dressed in black and white with just a touch of burnt orange, the Children of the Discordance x COSTS x Salomon XT-6 offers a crisp and speedy look that's centred around a signature paisley pattern on its quarter panels and toeboxes. Similar paisley is used on some of the collection's apparel pieces, making this XT-6 the perfect finishing touch! Other details are served up by a 'Discordance Exploration' text hit on the throat and a COSTS logo on the tongue. From a technical standpoint, Salomon's ACS midsole tech, Contagrip outsoles and speed lacing system provide high-end fit and comfort.

An official release date for the Children of the Discordance x COSTS x Salomon XT-6 has yet to be revealed, but it's likely to roll out alongside Children of the Discordance's SS23 collection next year. It's also a striking addition to Salomon's collaborative Rodolex: in recent weeks we've also seen Slam Jam rework the XT-4 and L'Art De L'Automobile bring some ultra-bright touches to the ACS Pro Advanced.
