Salomon Launch Blazing Renditions of the XT-6 and Speedcross 3Release: 16 October 2020
Salomon constantly scale the heights of style and functionality, with their iconic Speedcross 3 and XT-6 becoming archetypes of the brand’s indelible mountaineering DNA. The alpine giant has now linked with sportswear powerhouse Foot Locker to deliver two exclusive colourways on these popular models, both composed in a palette that’s perfect for the mountain or the street.
Designed in a mix of ‘Shale’, ‘Red Ochre’, and ‘Sulphur’, the eye-watering XT-6 rivals any view from the mountaintop. Built for the harshest conditions (the original XT-6 model launched in 2013 for elite athletes), Salomon have elevated their EVA cushioning with a sunny streak of colour that reaches its apex with a ‘Sulphur’ trail that runs from the toe to the heel.
Lightweight and durable, the abrasion-resistant TPU film and mesh employs a classic metallic and black construction, while colourful branding on the tongue brings attention to the quicklace technology.
Another modern classic from the Salomon catalogue, the Speedcross 3 has also been given a blazing facelift.
Illuminating the legendary Speedcross lug pattern in burnt gold, the silhouette brings an ‘Autumn Blaze’ to the toe, the gradient gently fading into a sunnier heel. Utilising a unique feather construction, and hefty black mudguards that protect the medial and lateral angles of the foot, the Speedcross remains one of the most enduring aesthetics from the vast Salomon range.
Both blazing versions of the Salomon XT-6 and Speedcross 3 are available now exclusively from Foot Locker.
Look out for more exciting new colourways to come!
