Salomon was born out of a love of sport and nature in 1947 in Annecy, in the French Alps.

Its mission is to help nature and adventure lovers find the best companion for their needs. 

"Salomon is for those who dare"

Salomon was founded in 1947 by George Salomon in Annecy, in the French Alps. The brand started in a small workshop creating skis with bevelled edges, which were later patented due to the creator's eagerness to bring skiing to all the small villages around. 

In 1992, he entered the mountain boot market and began his career in sports footwear. 

From 1997 onwards, he explored new sports and created snowboards and inline skates. 

And it was in 2002 that the XA PRO shoes were launched, the precursors of trail running and the benchmark in multisport raids. From that moment on, the brand has not stopped innovating and searching for perfection in sports shoes focused on nature and adventure. 

In 2022, Salomon celebrates 75 years of existence and innovation.
