END Clothing joined Columbia Sportswear to create the Douglas Fir Collection in a refreshing collaboration that blends fashion with outdoor functionality—featuring the robust Trans Trekker trail shoe. This partnership is a testament to both brands' commitment to merging style with practicality, a trend increasingly appreciated in the contemporary fashion landscape. The collection draws inspiration from the resilience and beauty of the Douglas Fir, a symbol of fortitude in the natural world, translating these qualities into a footwear design that's equally suited for city streets and rugged trails.
The END x Columbia Trans Trekker Douglas Fir trail shoe is a seamless fusion of aesthetics and performance. The shoe, dressed in a striking black and grey color palette, is accented with reflective 3M details strategically placed across the toe, midfoot, and heel for enhanced visibility. The design prioritizes functionality, featuring Columbia's Omni-Shield technology for superior water and stain resistance, ensuring durability in diverse conditions. Branding elements are thoughtfully integrated, with END's logo adorning the tongue, while Columbia's signature branding remains prominent on the lateral heel and insole. A cushioned Techlite foam midsole and an Adapt Trax outsole amplify the shoe's comfort, ensuring a comfortable yet rugged outdoor experience.
The END x Columbia Trans Trekker Douglas Fir will release November 29, 2023, exclusively through END Clothing. Available in men’s sizing, the sneakers are priced at $170. Download the Sole Retriever mobile app for updates on this release and more in the world of sneakers and streetwear.
