Parisian fashion labe AVNIER works in collaboration with Salomon once again on the special Mirage Effect sneaker silhouette. The duo drop the sneakers for the Spring/Summer 2020 season and the model draws inspiration from the Marathon des Sables. This is a 160 mile race that takes place through the Sahara desert, recognized as one of the toughest footraces in the world.
The color palette of the shoe represents the tones that are seen by the runners through the race, informing elements of sand, stone, and ivory. As a touch of contrast, there are accents including electric blue and laser foil as a reference to the water in the desert. The shoe also features technical elements true to Salomon including its perforated mesh construction and bonded graphics.
