Editor's Notes: Chances are, you're experiencing wet weather conditions, wind, and cold. That means one thing; boot season has officially arrived.
Finding a pair that suits your needs, performs to a high standard, and is aesthetically clean isn't always easy; fortunately, Salomon strips away the leg work for FW22 with new versions of its XA ALPINE 2 and QUEST GTX ADV.
Where the crossover between high performance and style is concerned, few sneaker brands possess the expertise or prowess of Salomon. Steeped in legacy, working with an innate understanding of alpine conditions and the needs of trail running, its footwear arsenal is second to none – I'd consider myself a die-hard fan of its flagship silhouettes, with a deep appreciation of its palette craft.
While the fashion industry tends to lean on all things XT-6 and XT-4 as easy-wearing, extremely comfortable, and stylish silhouettes, it's not all about low-top runners over at Salo'.
If you're looking to gear up with something that can tackle anything that Fall/Winter decides to throw your way, look no further.
Conceived for high-level functionality and protection, the QUEST GTX ADV is a GORE-TEX-equipped beast that packs a punch. A high-top boot built for all conditions, it'll keep you close to the ground, stable, and, most importantly, dry.
Its counterpart, the XA ALPINE 2, is light and athletic, built to tackle unpredictable wet and cold environments with lightweight comfort and a sporty style.
