Salomon has added a new style to its Spring 2022 launch that features a collaboration with Ciele Athletics. The new, reworked version of the Pulsar Trail Pro and Phantasm road silhouettes feature animal prints and vibrant colors.
Ciele’s signature zebra print can be seen on the Pulsar Trail Pro, alongside fluorescent colors and earthy hues. Equipped with Energy Surge foam for stability and extra midsole, the shoe’s design is practical and unique.
The Phantasm runner features cheetah prints scattered around the upper in ‘Black Rock’ and ‘Molten Red.’ Both sneakers also feature quotes encouraging runners to run at their own pace.
Both the Pulsar Trail Pro and Phantasm will be available on the Salomon and Ciele Athletics web stores and select partners on May 12.
