Salomon sneakers: from technical trekking shoes to cool fall 2023 model
I think about it chill with Salomon sneakers. Born to withstand bad weather despite the technical qualities for mountain walks, celebrities now wear them in the city. Founded in 1947 by a collective from Annecy, in the French Alps, to create the future and the sporting experience, this brand’s heritage today transcends conventional outdoor footwear to celebrate modern coolness that increasingly demands high levels of comfort. and performance (even if not required).
These trekking boots, developed in the 90s based on the knowledge gained from the production of ski boots for the Nordic countries, have been specially designed to provide more protection to the foot, incorporating proven and stable technologies for every hiker. And, perhaps, initially they did not think that they could become heroes in everyday fashion and street style. However, Salomons also like to be worn with cargo pants, a skirt, or a long dress, as we often see them in Emily Ratajkowski’s outfits.
And they are also popular for their focus on sustainability, the impact of which should also be reduced through the use of recycled materials. This commitment was especially evident from the creation of the first recyclable running shoes to the latest models, which are designed to be taken apart at the end of their life cycle and sent back to the company for recycling into new ones. product.
Even Rihanna succumbed to the comfort of Salomon sneakers and wore them right to the Super Bowl 2023 stage in a red version that also became perfect for young fashionistas moms.

Salomon XT 6, the most popular
Today we see him at the foot fashionistas precisely because of its charming design, malleable to any type of appearance. But this shoe, first launched on the market in 2013, was born as a favorite model of the world’s athletes in trail racing in adverse conditions due to its high cushioning, especially on descents.
The new designs are colorful, from the brightest and boldest, such as blue and chocolate, to pastel colors, such as the now popular pistachio and apricot shoes.
Salomon Speedcross, the first love you will never forget
These are the most popular shoes for trail running, including walking. Their design has a supply of sand, and maximum grip allows them to overcome even the most difficult tracks, often with the presence of mud. The outsole is as durable as a tire and pairs well with the reinforced upper.
The Salomon Speedcross 4 is a technical fabric lace-up low shoe. It is popular for many reasons: for example, because it adapts to many situations, including concerts in mixed and muddy areas. These are shoes that also go well with jeans or shorts for free time.
Instead, the Salomon Speedcross 5 has a more mountainous character. Fewer sneakers and more ankle boots, it has a raised platform sole and very strong lacing. It’s the perfect shoe for those who enjoy summer or off-season mountain walks, and especially for those who like to wear frilled skirts or denim skirts outside of hiking to give a free spirit to the look.
Salomon XA Pro 3D most suitable for trail running
Who said you can’t have a shoe that combines stability, durability and support. Ready for the toughest adventures, this model is stable and reliable with a durable protective handle, special eyelets and a waterproof membrane.
This trekking shoe has also become popular in the city, especially thanks to the It-girls. A sneaker-boot hybrid with a contrasting rubber outsole that accentuates the details of the upper for an urban feel. They go well with everything, even a casual dress, especially on cloudy days.
Salomon ACS Pro
An original technical shoe reimagined in a modern and urban way. In fact, thanks to their colors, they seem to be a great alternative to urban sneakers, but with a more stable stride. In fact, this shoe has been redesigned with the Agile Chassis System, which is reminiscent of the iconic trail running shoe yet able to keep up with the times.
