Footwear specialist Salomon has made a new addition to its Fall/Winter 2021 collection by unveiling the new Raid Wind ADVANCED sneakers. An homage to the history of pioneering trail footwear, these trek running shoes draw inspiration from the label’s archives from 1999 and the golden years of adventure racing.
In response to the requests of athletes from the late 90s, the Raid Wind ADVANCED shoes assure support, durability and strength thanks to the bulky, yet breathability silhouette, and the reinforced heel and front foot.
The entire body, from the upper to the lining, is made of lightweight layers of mesh; while the outside is topped off with a soft suede overlay and Salomon’s logo on the side and back. They also featured a Contagrip outsole and quick lace fastening system for better resistance, security and comfort.
The trail running shoes have been presented in a very interesting campaign shot by Thibaut Grevet and Chris Glickman as creative director. The campaign is set in a lunar, almost deserted landscape, where sprint runners can be seen climbing the mountain like a line of ants wearing nothing but a full-black bodysuit and the new Raid Wind ADVANCED.
The Raid Wind Advanced comes in three colorways: Lunar Rock / Wine Tasting / Blue Aster, Ebony / Rainy Day / Deep Lichen and Black / Black / Magnet. They’re available for $190 USD at select retailers, official stores and Salomon’s online shop too.
Salomon has become a reference when it comes to shoe design and innovation. And it seems that they continue to honour that reputation with each new release.
