Similar to brands like Arc’Teryx and Montbell, Salomon is another hiking-centric brand that has experienced a recent boost in recognition within the fashion industry thanks to the growing Gorpcore trend. But outside of the trend, Salomon has been a fixture within the outdoor gear space since 1942, and is adorned by hiking enthusiasts for its durably constructed footwear and accessories. Salomon originated in France in the early 20th century and transitioned from its original focus of skiing equipment to exploring other action sports and outdoor activities that relied on good, reliable products, such as trail running, climbing, and hiking. But Salomon wanted to branch out into fashion to help expand the business and introduce new clientele to their products. Jean-Philippe Lalonde, who is Salomon’s special projects manager, saw the Salomon XT-6 as an entryway into the fashion realm with the shoe’s “sleek curvature [being] the perfect canvas for a slew of wild color combinations”, as stated in GQ. In 2018, the sneaker would soon reach high-end stores like Dover Street Market and Ssense, be the canvas for collaborations with the likes of Boris Bidjan Saberi and Marine Serre, and become one of the “It” sneakers on everyone’s radar.

Stüssy x CPFM International T-Shirt White

Stüssy and Cactus Plant Flea Market add to their ongoing partnership with another installment featuring apparel and accessories for the summer. This collection of products features an assortment of colorful graphic pieces, including this Stüssy x CPFM International T-shirt. The tee sports CPFM’s love for puff print graphics, adding the printing style to Stüssy’s various logos like their signature 8 Ball and Skate logos. Alongside the logos is the acronym, WWCD, which stands for “What Would Cactus Do”, adding a subtle nod to the two brand’s partnership.

The North Face x Online Ceramics Cargo Shorts Green

With Salomon being deeply rooted within the hiking scene, it seems only right to pair these XT-6s with a pair of cargo shorts ready for exploring. Recently, The North Face and Online Ceramics collaborated on a capsule of goodies fit for the trails. These The North Face x Online Ceramics Cargo Shorts from the collection are a perfect match for the Salomon sneakers, matching utility with streetwear-focused design.

Supreme SOUTH2 WEST8 Jungle Hat Camo

This hat from Supreme and SOUTH2 WEST8 is another outdoorsy piece similar to the aforementioned TNF shorts. Back in 2021, Supreme partnered with SOUTH2 WEST8 for the first time, bringing hypewear to the forefront of fly fishing. Despite the collection focusing on the niche sport, the cap is one of the more versatile items that can be worn on the trail as well alongside the Salomon XT-6s.

Eric Emanuel EE Basic Short Vintage Violet

If you’re looking for a different set of shorts with more of a streamlined look, check out these EE Basic Shorts from Eric Emanuel. Basketball shorts are a great addition to a summer look thanks to their light, airy material. And with Eric Emanuel’s use of vibrant colors, they add another layer of brightness to your fit for the season.

Gap x Dapper Dan DAP Hoodie 

Fall will be here sooner than you may think so get prepared with this hoodie from Gap. This year, Gap partnered with Harlem’s “King of Knock-Offs” and permanent collaborator with Gucci, Dapper Dan, on a collection of hoodies that switch the classic “GAP” logo to “DAP”. The collection featured a handful of colorways, which will all match the mostly-monochromatic sneaker.
