UPDATE: KanagaROOS pride themselves on German handmade construction. Reserved for the brand's most premium releases, these 'Glacier' Coil-R1s have been fortunate enough to receive the revered treatment. Ahead of next week's drop, urbanpeople.com have taken us behind the scenes to witness the level of care that has gone into the creation of each and every pair. The price tag on these won't be cheap, but you can be sure the level of quality will be worth it.
The urbaneople.com x KangaROOS Coil-R1 will be available on May 27 through urbanpeople.com and selected KangaROOS stockists, including Hanon and SneakerBass.
Inspired by the mountainous beauty of their Swiss homeland, the crew at urbanpeople.com have knocked up this ‘Glacier’ version of the Coil-R1 runner by KangaROOS. A cold-snap combo of calf and goat leather adorn the upper in two-tone crystal blues, while the marsupial mascot is trimmed in the iciest white suede. For an extra layer of finesse, the tongue has been ever so slightly extended to deliver an eminently rakish profile.
These German-made ROOS come packaged with four sets of unique laces and a pair of DillySocks, all bundled together inside a custom ‘Glacier’ tote bag, featuring graphics by MM75 Design . Expect the reception to be anything but frosty when these hit stores!
The urbaneople.com x KangaROOS Coil-R1 will be available on May 27 through urbanpeople.com and selected KangaROOS stockists, including 24 Kilates BCN and 24 Kilates BKK.
