KangaROOS is back with another limited edition release from their ROOS UNITED project. KangaROOS worked with Kish Kash and Sneakerqueen and used the Ultimate 001 silhouette as the base of the collaboration which was entitled the ‘Cherry Maple.’
The Story Behind the KangaROOS Ultimate 001 ‘Cherry Maple’
The friendship between Kish Kash and Sneakerqueen cemented over an appreciation of street culture that has crossed boundaries over the years, resulting in a deep rooted synergy which has now finally led to collaborating and channelling their mutual passion for sneakers and nature.
KangaROOS Ultimate 001 ‘Cherry Maple’ is exquisitely handcrafted in Germany from the finest leathers. This sneaker provides a reflection of the coming autumn and the marvel the transition between seasons presents via a spectrum of autumnal hues.
Coming from similar inspirations, but different approaches to sneaker archiving, we have come together to display our shared love for nature. Our inspirations come from walks on damp forest floors, padded with carpets of moss and fall foliage. From the twinkling sunlight through the forest canopy; the air fragrant from wild cherries and pine. From the colourful palette of maple leaves before they return to the earth from whence they came. From the misty mornings and golden hours. From the reminder that nature is still the greatest colour coordinator and the thought that the continuous seasons may reconnect us to it and it to us.
KangaROOS, Kish Kash and Sneakerqueen hope that you appreciate and cherish the rich quality of the materials and the meticulous craftsmanship, as much as we do. We also hope you will wear them on many hikes to reconnect with our glorious environment – whether you find yourself on trails in a forest or the streets within the urban jungle.
