Dutch artist Kwills and German sneaker brand KangaROOS have created a highly limited hybrid runner. Nicknamed 'The Flying Dutchman', the colab takes inspiration from air travel, specifically the colours of Royal Dutch Airlines' Boeing 737-800. The design fuses two popular ROOS silhouettes, taking the Coil-R2 upper and marrying it with the Runaway 2's sole unit.
Crafted in the brand's German factory, The Flying Dutchman is made with leathers and suede and features an extra-supple pigskin lining. For a special touch, Kwills has added a mini ROOS logo to the toe box as a nod to a particular Japanese sneaker store.
The shoes come packaged with a hangtag, extra laces, limited edition A4 print, waterproof Heimplanet x Kwills kit bag, and a specially created RawEndz mixtape (check it out on SoundCloud).
Only 155 pairs will release on October 28 exclusively through Afew, Overkill, 43einhalb, The Good Will Out, Asphalt Gold, Titolo, Flaggship and Kwill's own webshop.
