No need to interrupt a winning formula, White Mountaineering says. Though it can clearly produce its own solid shoes, the Japanese brand continues to forge new collaborative territories each season, with Fall/Winter 2020 seeing White Mountaineering enlist Saucony and UGG for a series of exclusive colorways and bold silhouettes.
The debut Saucony partnership yields three special silhouettes, encompassing both the retro-cool Grid Web sneaker and techy Switchback. The former is rendered in vivid neon hues or stark monochrome, while the latter is a sleek trail runner made extra-accessible by a BOA lacing system. While the Switchback features White Mountaineering branding, the Grid Web shoes feature shades selected specifically to blend with White Mountaineering’s FW20 collection.
Meanwhile, White Mountaineering’s ongoing UGG collaborations manifests two winter-friendly shoes, including another round of chunky runners and an insulated Short Boot. Offered in black, white and grey variations, the sneaker’s hues are as accessible as those seen atop the quilted boots, which feature ski boot-inspired shin guards and a toasty fleece lining.
Expect the footwear collection to launch this week — first the UGG, then the Saucony shoes — on White Mountaineering’s web store.
White Mountaineering is in the midst of preparing next year’s Spring/Summer 2021 styles.
