Editor’s Notes: Salomon continues to crank out collaborations in quick-fire succession, this week debuting a co-branded Shelter CS WP in partnership with Better™ Gift Shop.

The Better™ Gift Shop x Salomon Advanced Shelter CS WP is a versatile and durable hiker made for use in both urban and rural environments. The olive shade on the upper is a nod to German artist Gerhard Richter’s Forest 4 artwork from 2005, while the lavender accents draw from the Munstead Lavender Plant, which is capable of surviving up to 20 years in the mountains.

In speaking on the collaboration, Better™ Gift Shop designer Jordan Thomas said, “Technical gear in urban environments makes our day-to-day lives more seamless. The shoe is intended for everyday use in different outdoor and urban environments that make each metropolitan area unique. Whether you’re in Toronto, New York, Paris, or Tokyo, concrete and forest are only separated by a train ride, so we wanted to create something that could straddle both terrains.”
