Every five years, the German city of Kassel plays host to documenta, one of the world's most significant exhibitions of modern art. With the 14th edition currently underway, Kassel-locals Sapato have collaborated with KangaROOS to commemorate the occasion with a truly unique piece of footwear.
Combining the Coil R-1 and Ultimate silhouettes, the Sapato crew have crafted an immaculate fusion of these fan-favourites models. The Coil R-1 upper takes pride of place up top, while an Ultimate sole unit sits pretty down below. KangaROOS have spared no expense with this project, which has been lavishly constructed from calf leather and goat skin in the heart of Germany. Translucent turquoise outsoles provide an ice cold hit to an otherwise neutral-hued sneaker. Nicknamed the D14, the hybrid is a nod to the exhibition's latest iteration.
The Sapato x KangaROOS D14 is limited to 252 pairs and will be released on September 16 through Sapato. A small selection of additional European retailers will also stock the colab, including Hanon, The Good Will Out and Overkill.
