Drawing inspiration from Scandinavian landscapes and design, British brand RANRA has quickly become known for its artful interpretations of traditional silhouettes. The label is partnering with Salomon for their second link-up, continuing to marry RANRA's distinctive aesthetic with Salomon's technical prowess on the Salomon Cross Pro.
For this special collaboration, the RANRA x Salomon Cross Pro Better Pack is designed to bring Scandinavian dishes to life through its vivid and thoughtfully chosen color palette. Both sneakers are constructed with a ripstop nylon, suede, and mesh blend, ensuring durability and comfort. Cathay Spice, kelp, bright lime green, and images of vibrant, fresh Scandinavian dishes inspire the first colorway. The second pair, meanwhile, showcases a blend of turmeric, blazing orange, and scarlet ibis, mirroring the warm, earthy tones of spice-rich recipes. Underfoot, each pair features contrasting shades that add depth and dimension to the design, culminating in an outdoor-ready outsole consistent with the rest of the sole unit.
The RANRA x Salomon Cross Pro Better Pack will release August 24, 2023, through Salomon, RANRA, and select retailers online and in-store. Coming in men’s sizing, the retail price is set at $230.
