SIX STORIES VOL. 5: CHAPTER 3 – LIFESTYLE & MODERN OUTDOOR AESTHETIC

    Brand Focus: SALOMON X BEAMS

    BEAMS and Salomon reprise their partnership for a second collaboration. Both brands have re-worked the XA PRO 3D GTX, a low-top trail-running silhouette.

    ASYMMETRICAL DESIGN

    A special “Woodland Camouflage” gradient camouflage sets the collaboration apart from other Salomon collaborations. The unique color blocking hearkens back to BEAMS’ philosophy of asymmetrical design, while the color gradation application differentiates the left shoe from the right.

    GUARANTEED TO KEEP YOU DRY

    The special-edition model retains a number of performance characteristics, most notably a weather-resistant and highly breathable GORE-TEX membrane.

    PREPARED FOR THE WORST

    Additional performance features include a reinforced toe cap, a specially engineered chassis for stability, and a rugged and versatile Contagrip sole for improved traction.

    ABOUT BEAMS

    Contemporary retailer BEAMS has established an eye for exploring, curating and re-interpreting modern menswear dress codes, including sportswear, workwear, military, ivy league, Rock’N’Roll, and more.

    ABOUT SALOMON

    Salomon was founded in 1947 in the heart of the French Alps, as a manufacturer of outdoor sports equipment. Starting in the early 90s, Salomon has been specializing in hiking shoes. Since then, Salomon’s outdoor footwear has continued to gain favor among explorers. More recently, Salomon’s S/LAB division has started to foray into limited-edition products, collaborating with the likes of designer Boris Bidjan Saberi and Parisian boutique The Broken Arm. Editor’s Note: this product has now sold out from BEAMS.
