Salomon Advanced | Winter 2019 Editorial


The Salomon Advanced line takes the brand’s well-loved silhouettes and updates them for adaptability. With highly technical textiles and durable, yet lightweight, constructions, this subline offers versatile footwear for any situation. Each silhouette is finished with an OrthoLite® insole and lugged Contragrip outsole, for optimal comfort and stability in slippery environments. Futuristic designs, slimmed-down silhouettes and performance-driven details have Salomon Advanced standing at the vanguard of footwear technology.

The S/LAB Snowcross ADV LTD, noted for its cold-weather capabilities, is updated with a full waterproof ripstop upper, lined with a ClimaSalamon membrane. This membrane offers thermal heat retention with exceptional breathability for trail running situations. A cushioned midsole and sockliner offer a structured fit throughout, along with ankle pads and protective toe cap for optimal support. The front zip entry makes this silhouette an easy, go-to shoe for all conditions.

The S/LAB XT-4 ADV offers a slimmed-down trail runner silhouette. The layered nylon mesh upper offers breathable ventilation as well as a fused, abrasion-resistant TPU film lining. Textured overlays wrap around the foot and integrate into Saloman’s distinct Quicklace system. The dual density EVA midsole is substantiated with the Evolved Agile Chassis System, providing balanced support underfoot.

The S/LAB XTQuest Hi GTX ADV is an updated, lightweight hiking boot in a synthetic ripstop upper. The flexible upper is lined with a full GORE-TEX® membrane for optimal waterproofing and breathability, and structured with rubber overlays to keep the foot in place. Salomon’s 4D Advanced Chassis guide provides excellent stability underfoot, from the heel to the forefoot, finished with advanced flexibility at the toe. A rope lacing cage with eyelets and hook lacing completes the silhouette.
