Admittedly, it can be confusing these days. Way back when, hiking shoes were for the trails and sneakers were for the streets, where they’d remain relatively clean. But then Nike ACG made a white suede Dog Mountain and Gucci released the Flashtrack, and the waters got muddied (thank god it wasn't the Guccis!).
Salomon’s S/Lab XT6 Softground ADV takes things back to basics. Its seamless synthetic construction means these can withstand whatever the great outdoors have in store, while the thick tread will give you stability no matter the surface.
It just so happens they look really good too.
These are available from Salomon stockists now.
