The gorpcore explosion has made us all look at technically-produced hiker gear a bit differently. Suddenly wearing a waterproof Arc'teryx jacket isn't only done by outdoorsy folk, but also by fashion-conscious TikTok users who show off the waterproof technology while standing in the shower.

The influence this has had on footwear has been that hiking and trail-running shoes are generating hype like Jordans always have, and Salomon is at the forefront of it all.

The French sportswear label has been in business since 1947, creating gear for mountain trails and alpine sports. It has always had a cult following for its super grippy and durable footwear amongst those with a love for the great outdoors — and now we're playing catch-up.

Salomon is making the most of the trail-running sneaker demand, coming through with a consistent collection of functional kicks in bold aesthetics. The beauty of its sneakers is that there are colorways and silhouettes for pretty much every style.

Although there is a wild number to choose from, we've rounded up our current highlights from across the French brand's silhouettes, from its coveted XT-Wings range to its various collaborations.

Scroll through our selection below and, at the very least, get inspired by Salomon’s expert color blocking.

Buy at Luisaviaroma

The XT-6 is one of the first Salomon models that was discovered by those spearheading the trail-running sneaker wave, and it's clear to see why. One of the factors that have given this long-distance running shoe a legion of fans beyond the running world is its range of colorways, such as this one.

We can't decide whether we prefer our Salomons in striking color-blocked colorways or pared-back iterations like this. Having a balance is probably the best choice. The white uppers are highlighted by blue hits to the midsole while a gum outsole gives this specialist runner som serious lifestyle energy.

Buy at mytheresa

The Salomon ACS Pro is undoubtedly Salomon's most rugged design. Dropping last year, the shoe immediately gained momentum within the world of sneakers because of its chunky, off-road silhouette. Since then, a handful of great colorways have dropped but one of our favorites is the classic Triple Black edition.

While the XT-4, XT-6, and XT-Wings 2 dominate headlines for Salomon, there's a range of silhouettes which deserve your attention behind the scenes. Take the Phantasm, for example. This sleek runner has been picked by Ciele Athletics as the canvas for collaboration. The eye-catching design turns heads.

Mules, or slides, in this case, are a bonafide Summer staple but work just as well year-round with the right layers. The latest from several collaborations between Salomon and Beams, the two brands focus on small details like the reinforced leather toe cap and gradient mesh upper.

Salomon's XA Pro 3D is one of its best-selling trail running sneakers, but colorways such as this silver one have got us thinking they'd be waisted getting dirty on a run.

The XT-Quest 2 Advanced might be one of the lesser-known sneakers from Salomon sneaker arsenal, but it packs the same punch as the rest of the sneakers on this list. The tonal off-white color blends nubuck, mesh, and faux-suede materials to give these sneakers a distinctive character that sets them apart from the brand's other releases.
