Regardless of function and purpose, footwear quickly becomes all about aesthetic whenever fashion determines it vogue. And there’s arguably no better an example of this than MM6 Maison Margiela‘s upcoming collaboration with Salomon.
Though a hiking shoe by design, the Salomon XT-4’s upcoming collaboration with MM6 Maison Margiela sees the sneaker stray quite a bit away from the trail. The diffusion label — often described as a more affordable sibling to the mainline — has simply chopped off the heels of the staple model, turning it from a piece of utility into a fashionable pair of mules. In addition to this, MM6 has also stamped the toe box with the number-heavy graphic found on the labels of their clothing.
Pictured in multiple colorways, the MM6 Maison Margiela x Salomon XT-4 is expected to release in time for Spring/Summer ’23. More details should be unveiled soon, so sit tight and stay tuned for updates.
