Palace Skateboards and Salomon work in collaboration to design a new iteration of the classic Speed Cross 4 sneaker model for the season. The duo blends together two iconic colorways to create the latest update, delivering high performing design elements throughout the entire construction.
Notably, the sneakers rise to the performance of both hiking and trail-running specifically, whilst also spotlighting the style conscious approach to the overall design language. The uppers are made from ripstop nylon materials with overlaying accents at the sides of the sneaker, the heel, and the toe. Branding accents are found at the toe as well, nodding to Palace and Salomon's branding runs down the side of the heel. The sneaker's London and US launch is set for September 6th and Japanese launch on September 7th.
