KangaROOS unveils the third collaborative silhouette as part of its ‘Traditions Pack.’ After ‘Denim‘ and ‘Kord,’ ‘Tweed‘ now joins the collection. Based on the high-end KangaROOS Coil R2 model, this sneaker was designed with the Harris Tweed Authority.

The Harris Tweed Act created the Harris Tweed Authority in 1993, which is an independent statutory public body. It replaced the Harris Tweed Association founded in 1909. The role of the Authority is to protect and promote the Harris Tweed® brand worldwide, its authenticity, standard and world-renowned reputation.

By law, Harris Tweed fabric must be: “Handwoven by the islanders in their own homes in the Outer Hebrides, finished in the Outer Hebrides and made from pure new wool dyed and spun in the Outer Hebrides (the Isles of Lewis, Harris, Uist and Barra).

Because they share the same values and love for the same beautiful materials, craftsmanship and attention to detail, KangaROOS and the Harris Tweed Authority naturally partnered to develop a collaborative Coil R2. And of course, the renowned premium sneaker factory Hummel und Hummel in Germany will manufacture them.

This Made in Germany sneaker is a combination of tweed and suede. It features a green, brown, beige, and grey colour palette. The base, in two shades of green tweed, complements the honey-brown suede overlays at the front. Beige with touches of pearl grey are on the back. To symbolise the collab, the hammer and chisel logo is embroidered in lime green on the heel. The tongue tag also features the co-branding. The sneaker sits on a white midsole with DYNACOIL cushioning and a gumsole.

The Harris Tweed Authority x KangaROOS Coil R2 ‘Tweed,’ which is part of the ‘Traditions Pack,’ will be on sale on the 4th of December online at KangaROOS and at the following selected retailers : 43einhalb / Acribik / AFEW / Allike / Alte Schule / Asphaltgold / Bijsmaak / Chmielna 20 / Egotrips / Footshop / Gloryhole / Hanon / HHV / Lace Up / Mainsource / Outback / Overkill / Schrittmacher / SneakAvenue / Sneakerbaas / Sneakerstudio / Steffl 6th Floor / Street / Suppa.
