ATELIER KAMP x KangaROOS Ultralite ‘VIC’ was inspired by the Vienna International Centre (VIC), also known as UNO-City. This extraordinary building from the 70’s has significantly shaped Austria’s aesthetic sense.

The Austrian architect Johann Staber designed this building so that the six Y-shaped parts are distinctively arranged in order to allow as much sunlight in as possible. The ‘VIC’ opened its doors in 1979 – right when Bob Gamm launched KangaROOS aka “shoes with a pocket” – and is currently being used by the United Nations (UN).

Co-founder of ATELIER KAMP Florian Kampelmuehler talks about his late Aunt Heide, who used to work at the UNO-City supermarket when he was a kid, hooking him up with strange and rare sweets and beverages. She was his inspiration and connection to this cool design and he dedicated this sneaker to her.

The ATELIER KAMP x KangaROOS Ultralite ‘VIC’ has a 90’s indoor silhouette and is mainly wrapped in buttery smooth Nappa leather, with micro-perforations on the toe and quilted side panels to reference the building’s structure. A beautiful bluish, light grey takes on most of the upper while dark grey suede covers the heel section. 

Different shades of the 70’s orange can be found on the animal stripe, laces, and lace tags as well as the terry cloth lining. White nubuck and cream beige suede details as well as lilac TPU eyelets provide for accents. A cream beige sole unit with lilac details and a violet stabilizer finish off this future classic. The ATELIER KAMP x KangaROOS Ultralite ‘VIC’ sneakers are made in Germany.

With the current COVID-19 pandemic, these times definitely call for unity. We are all small parts of a bigger picture. Every ATELIER KAMP x KangaROOS Ultralite ‘VIC’ pair comes with two puzzle pieces, hoping that one day we can come together to complete the puzzle.

The ATELIER KAMP x KangaROOS Ultralite ‘VIC’ will be released on the 28th of August on the ATELIER KAMP website. Worldwide release will be on 10th of September and will be available at 43einhald, Acribik, Afew, Alike, Bijsmaak, Chmielna 20, Footshop, Gloryhole, Egotrips, Hanon, HHV, JumpNshoez, Mainsource, Outback, Overkill, Schrittmacher, Sneakerbaas, Sneakerstudio, Suppa, Titolo and on KangaROOS.
