DSM London Are Dropping Two Exclusive Salomon XT-6 ACS ColourwaysRelease: 12 May 2022 ,
Photo London 2022 – an international photography fair – is kicking off in the coming days, so Dover Street Market's London outpost is celebrating with a special lineup of releases. Chief among these are two no-frills colourways of Salomon's popular XT-6 ACS: the 'Black/Black' and the 'Silver/Black.'
Much more minimal than Salomon's usual roster of brightly-coloured XT-4s and XT-6s, each pair offers a muted mesh base that's overlaid with a two-tone synthetic midfoot cage, toe cap and heel details. Midsoles offer a slightly aged finish for a striking past-meets-future contrast with their high-gloss ACS cages, while Salomon's other technical signatures like EndoFit and Contagrip work with an OrthoLite sockliner and a familiar quick lacing system to ensure a high-performance feel that'll remain consistent no matter if you're trekking country trails or trudging through city streets. There are also plenty of Salomon branded hits dispersed across the upper, though no DSM marks can be found.
Expect both colourways of this special XT-6 ACS to drop at Dover Street Market London on May 12. Currently, there's no word on a potential global release.
