Salomon has been a part of the French alps since 1947. Their passion and love for outdoor sports has driven them to produce gear with the best technologies and craftsmanship. Their goal as a brand is for their customers to feel free in the outdoors and enjoy their time as they challenge themselves.
Salomon focuses on functionality, craftsmanship, and high quality product, and that is exactly what they deliver to their customers. Their gear is made specific for each sport and they ensure that it will enhance your performance. With that being said, they divide their gear and clothing specifically by sport categories; such as running, outdoor, alpine, nordic, freeride & touring, and snowboard. This provides their consumers with the information needed to purchase the best gear for their sport of choice, and give them the confidence and comfort needed to enhance their performance. Functionality and accessibility have become amazing trends that the fashion industry has seen grow more and more as time goes on. Many consumers are more concerned with how the product will perform, rather than what it looks like. In Salomon’s case, they have executed this trend perfectly. Although they do not offer many bold patterns and colors on their gear and clothing, they successfully provide quality, accessibility, and functionality.
