Footshop was founded in 2011 in the Czech Republic by Peter Hajduček. Since then Footshop have been defining the current shape of fashion in the streets and online world, focusing on limited, exclusive and premium collections. This year marks Footshop’s 10th year anniversary and to celebrate they will be releasing a few collaborations, one of which is with KangaROOS.
This is not the first time Footshop and KangaROOS have collaborated. First collaboration was in 2018 with the ‘The City Of A Hundred Spires’ which was inspired by the popular nickname for Prague, which references the Czech Republic capital’s unique architecture. The rooftops, terraces and the hundred of spires offer some of the best views you can’t get anywhere else in the world. Second collaboration was in 2019 with the ‘Flip’ which was inspired by the design of the National Museum building in Prague which overlooks the city centre from Wenceslas Square.
Now for 2021, Footshop and KangaROOS third collaboration entitled ‘Nocturna’, inspired by the City of Prague will be the final iteration of the Ultimate model. The sneaker will feature an updated dark colour scheme and will be the most limited of the series of Footshop x KangaROOS collaborations. Only 250 individually numbered hand-made pairs were created.
The Footshop x KangaROOS Ultimate 3 ‘Nocturna’ will feature a black upper combined with the familiar pattern of suede and premium leather with a new addition of ballistic nylon-like canvas. The sock liner and insole are also reworked. Different colour loop on the sneaker’s tongue references the previous two versions of the sneaker. Silver anniversary branding is presented on the tongue, accompanied by detailed graphics of Prague’s iconic Charles’s Bridge on the heel of the sneaker.
The Footshop x KangaROOS Ultimate 3 ‘Nocturna’ will be available on the 21st of December exclusively from Footshop. Make sure you subscribe to our newsletter to keep up to date! For previous KangaROOS features, please click here.
