This sneaker blends ultra-resistant firemen's uniform fabrics to create a karting and motorsports-inspired sneaker that challenges corporate creativity norms and offers a fresh perspective on the intersection of function and technology. 

The sneaker embodies a statement rather than just a product, reflecting a dynamic and anti-identitarian collaborative spirit. It explores uncharted territory in motorsports, non-professional practice, suburban areas, and karting tracks, integrating vocabularies like aerodynamics and engine technology. 

Salomon's innovation in mountain sports is evident in the X-ALP GR10K, featuring the patented 3D Edging Chassis™️ for lateral stability and flexibility. The sneaker also has a collapsible tongue that offers wearers style adaptability, mirroring the versatility of protective fire-retardant garments in racing. The sneaker is highly resistant to the elements and is inspired by karting and motorsports.

The collaboration between Salomon and GR10K is a conversation between heritage and innovation, with the sneaker being a research endeavour into new outdoor practice areas, natural limitations, and the sports media spectrum.
