KangaROOS Dunk the Ultralite II in Selvedge DenimRelease: 6 November 2021
Fresh off a colab with Kish Kash and Sneaker Queen, KangaROOS are keeping it rolling with a denim-equipped take on the Ultralite II. Drawing from the high-end craftsmanship that goes into making a pair of artisanal selvedge jeans, the 'Denim' is every bit as detailed as a pair of bespoke trousers!
The shoe's base is rich navy denim, with contrasting washed denim at the collar representing the cuffed bottoms many selvedge aficionados are fond of. More denim is used on the heel overlay as well, where it's trimmed with red thread for the shoe's most direct nod to selvedge jeans. Blue suede overlays work with a red KangaROOS logo for material contrast, and a finishing hit of flair is provided by a custom tongue badge.
Denim devotees and KangaROOS kollectors (collectors, pardon the wordplay) will be able to secure a pair of the Ultralite II 'Denim' come November 6 when they release at retailers like Asphalt Gold. The MSRP is set at €249.
