MM6 Maison Margiela and Salomon present to you the first chapter of a collaboration that speaks to the brands’ shared ethos of transitional design, first seen in the Maison’s Autumn/Winter 2022 show. The two heavyweights have created an epic collaboration that draws inspiration from the everyday, celebrating the unsung beauty of quotidian dressing, and the eclectic blur of clothes that pass us by on our cities’ streets. These sneakers make up the first iteration of the MM6 Maison Margiela x Salomon collaboration, which fuses the fashion house’s signature style with Salomon’s performance-oriented design approach.
The MM6 Maison Margiela x Salomon AW22 Sneakers Have Arrived
These are the hyped kicks that we first saw on the runway
There’s two new silhouettes that make up this collections—the Cross Low and the Cross High–both of which strike an unexpected harmony between aesthetic unconventionality and high-tech calibre. Let’s first take a look at the details of the MM6 Maison Margiela x Salomon Cross Low.

Illustrating the capsule’s hybrid perspective, the MM6 Maison Margiela x Salomon Cross Low marries a progressive aesthetic with performance-ready credentials. Features include: a reinterpreted lug derived from Salomon’s signature Speedcross pattern, an inner mesh slip-on shoe nod to Salomon’s trail running heritage, and bold hues along with a built-in ripstop gaiter speak to MM6’s unconventional yet casual design. Three colorways are available in this beauty–black and white, red and pink and multicolor khaki and grass green.
Next up, the MM6 Maison Margiela x Salomon Cross High.

The MM6 Maison Margiela x Salomon Cross High similarly fuses a performance sensibility with a directional aesthetic. Features on this include: the same redesigned lug and block heel as the MM6 Maison Margiela x Salomon Cross Low but in a high-top silhouette echoing the Maison’s signature ‘6’ heel boot for a versatile, street-ready feel, a snug suede and ripstop upper, and Salomon’s Sensifit quicklace technology with maximal stability and support. For this one, you can opt for either the black and white or red colorway.
Here’s what the MM6 design team had to say:
“Our motivation was to create a shoe that could easily transition between cityscapes and the great outdoors — a single product that both maintained Salomon’s high-performance specifications and also resonated with MM6 Maison Margiela’s contemporary aesthetic. The core idea, though, was the same as it always is for us. Our goal was to push Salomon’s performance-driven designs to such an extreme that they seamlessly integrated into the MM6 Maison Margiela wardrobe.”
The MM6 Maison Margiela x Salomon capsule will be available from November 11th, 2022.
The MM6 Maison Margiela x Salomon capsule will be available from November 11th, 2022 at MM6 Maison Margiela e-commerce sites, online at www.maisonmargiela.com and boutiques, as well as in selected multi-brand stores.
