4. ATMOS X SALOMON XT-6 “STARS COLLIDE”

Salomon x atmos: the explosive “Stars Collide” collaboration of the XT-6

 

For some time now, Salomon, the label from Annecy, has established itself on the sneaker culture scene, thanks in particular to its flagship silhouette, the Salomon XT-6. After a collaboration with Kith , it is now the atmos shop which is joining forces with Salomon for an explosive meeting. The collaboration, titled “Stars Collide,” highlights the brand’s first-ever Harajuku-based heritage.

This new variant of the XT-6 is based on the concept of a collision of celestial bodies. The two partners thus drew inspiration from the star pattern used on past Atmosphere projects in the early 2000s. This collaboration pays homage to the night sky, representing the moment when stardust is scattered throughout the universe .

The all-new XT-6 sports a silver, gray and black mesh base, as well as a speckled finish adorning the midsole which sports ACS and EnergyCell technology. The branding is present on the last, including the “Salomon” inscription, the “S” on the lace lock, as well as the co-branding on the tongue.

Finally, the outsole is equipped with a Mud Contagrip sole to improve grip on different surfaces.


This collaboration between Salomon and atmos is an ode to the night sky and the universe. The XT-6 “Stars Collide” thus represents the collision of two brands to create a unique pair that is sure to appeal to sneaker lovers. The Atmos x Salomon XT-6 "Stars Collide", will be available on Atmos from April 7, 2023, at the price of €184 (retail).

5. JOE FRESHGOODS X NEW BALANCE 610 “ORANGE TAN”

The Chicago designer's rise continues with the Joe Freshgoods x New Balance collaboration.

 

Joe Freshgoods has become one of Boston label New Balance's most prolific collaborators.

It brought models like the NB 993 and NB 9060 back to the forefront.

For his fifth collaborative project, Joe Freshgoods proposed three models that move away from his usual vision.

Here we see earthy colors and camouflage styles paired with a special box referencing the “below the surface” theme.

The second model is the Joe Freshgoods x New Balance 610 Orange Tan.

It uses the same materials as the previous model but with a different color. A Black upper is balanced by Dark Orange accents on the “N” logo and hits of Peach on the suede overlays.

The shape is based on an N-Durance sole, which provides better comfort and grip. JFG graphics are featured throughout the shoe, while hiking-style laces add to the aesthetic.

Freshgoods' new pack showcases its ability to create unique designs and bring new perspectives to classic New Balance silhouettes.

His rise in the design world continues, and his latest collaboration with New Balance only solidifies his position as one of the most promising designers around. The Joe Freshgoods x New Balance 610 “Orange Tan” will be available on New Balance from April 28, 2023, at a price of €170 (retail).
