Salomon x Carhartt WIP CSWP Shelter: Release Date, Price, Style

While hiking boots are traditionally reserved for long walks into the unknown, these technical silhouettes make a name for themselves in urban environments. A trend that closely follows the never-ending movement that is ‘GORP,’ Carhartt WIP x Salomon is the next in a long line of Salomon Sportstyle collaborations—including the likes of And Wander and 11 By Boris Bidjan Saberi. Look for these to land on Australian shores on 24 February 2022, with North America and Europe seeing them a little earlier on 10 February 2022.

Release date: 10 February 2022 (Global) / 24 February 2022 (Australia)

The silhouette might be the most critical aspect in a footwear collaboration. Because two big-name brands link, it doesn’t always result in a sneaker of the year contender. While we would’ve liked to see a partnership between the brands on something like an XT-6, XT-4 or ACS Pro Advanced model, the chosen CSWP Shelter silhouette is both fully waterproof and packed full of performance, so we can’t complain. Carhartt WIP has added a workwear touch to the French footwear brand’s style, and the boot now resembles something urban utilitarian.

If you have no idea what ‘gorpcore’ is, then this image of Travis Scott wearing head to toe Arc’tyrex might clear things up.

Lightly insulated to be worn in environments where the weather can take its toll, the palette features tonal plays on Carhartt classic greens, greys and blacks with pared-back branding that lends focus to the shoe’s technical nature. Indonesian vine camouflage finds its way to the footbed in classic Carhartt collab fashion, and the outsole is rugged and durable. The campaign video showcases the interplay between Salomon’s outdoor leaning aesthetic and Carhartt’s industrial metropolis nature.

We like to think of this as the brand’s most obvious attempt at promoting the ‘gorpcore’ aesthetic. It perfectly speaks to those who prefer to wear their Arc’tyrex jackets in the shower. You can cop a pair for yourself by following the links above. Click the link below for more Salomon goodness.
