x White Mountaineering SWITCHBACK
Yosuke Aizawa’s Tokyo Based label has brought the progressive, aesthetic sensibility of modern fashion to outdoors minded product since 2006. White Mountaineering blurs the solid lines between the artifical categories of "lifestyle" and "performance" with the notion that style, comfort and performance are not competing opposites, but a series of qualities, in a state of constantly leveling fluidity.
A collaborative effort with Saucony applies these principles to one of the renowned running brand's contemporary trail running silhouettes, the Switchback. The BOA Fit system, an innovative, dial-adjustable side lacing construction allows the lightweight yet durable woven upper to take on an extra sleek, minimalist look. A contoured midsole, dual density outsole, and tacky rubber lugs provide energy returning cushion and extra grippy traction. The Switchback's dynamic technical qualties are matched with a black and white concentric rings and lines design, which gives off a sense of modern disruption.
