The Salomon XT-Quest 2 Has Arrived in ‘Black’ and ‘Vanilla Ice’
Release: 3 March 2022

Colourway: Black/Ebony/Frost Grey

Salomon’s been going all-out with their lifestyle-geared hiking offerings as of late, with their recent ACS Pro Advanced kicking up a stink all over socials. They’ve also upped their collaboration game, tapped by END. for an XT-Wings 2 and Carhartt WIP for a rugged CSWP Shelter. Interestingly, it seems their collaborations have moved away from the XT-6 and XT-4. Through these link ups, people who may not be familiar with their large archival catalogue can witness the brand’s versatility and range of models.

However, legendary French retailer and long-time Salomon collaborator The Broken Arm have always been known to rework lesser-known obscurities. Most recently, the duo went rogue on an XT-Quest 2, looking back to early 2000s hikers for inspiration, with the shoe coming in a period-correct colourway. This colab comes three years after their fifth venture, crafting a futuristic XT-Quest.

The Salomon XT-Quest 2 has now arrived as somewhat of a GR in two colourways one simply in Black/Ebony/Frost and another in Vanilla Ice/Rainy Day. It stays true to its early-2000s original build and is rooted in the brand’s long hiking heritage however has been updated to a modernised standard. The upper has been constructed via a single layer mesh and high-quality nubuck leather with gusseted tongue and central protective padding. Providing comfort is the 4D Advance Chassis system, Sensifit technology and moulded EVA sock liner, while 3D mesh makes it extra breathable. If you were looking to take this bad boy on the trail then your lateral and medial foot will be protected via the bumper mudguard and will get insane grip from the All Terrain Contagrip outsole.

Available now, you can cop the Salomon XT-Quest 2 Black/Ebony/Frost or Vanilla Ice/Rainy Day from the retailers above. They’re selling fast so you’ll need to be quick!
