KangaROOS‘ latest drop Runaway 001 CNY2 celebrates the most important festival in China, Chinese New Year, by taking inspiration from this year’s zodiac sign, the Tiger.

Chinese New Year takes place between January 31st and February 15th. It’s a celebration of the beginning of the new year according to the lunisolar Chinese calendar. Each year also has a zodiac animal, and a total of 12 animals complete one cycle.

KangaROOS celebrates Chinese New Year for the second time with the CNY2. Of course, handmade in Germany. They have kept the red and gold theme as they are considered lucky colours. These colours represent good fortune, prosperity and joy in China. There is also a myth that these colours helped drive away a man-eating monster that appears every year. In other words, these sneakers’ designs keep evil away and help bring joy and prosperity to the owner!

The upper of this gem is a combination of calf suede, calf nubuck, mesh, and recycled PET material. The insole, handcrafted model in Münchweiler, is not only breathable, but also antibacterial, moisture-absorbing, and recyclable.

The upper combines beige mesh and nubuck with red suede overlays. A streak of brown and black tiger stripes decorate the side panels and the KangaROOS icon is on a red insert with gold embroidery. The strong red and gold design is cooled down with a black heel clip, a beige midsole and a light blue outsole.

Only 350 pairs were made of this premium sneaker, so you’ll have to get in early to get your feet into a pair. These drop on the 28th of January 2022, only in these select stores:

43einhalb, Acribik, Afew, Allike, Bijsmaak, Conkrete, Egotrips, Footshop, Gloryhole, Hanon, HHV, J’N’S, Overkill, Schrittmacher, SneakAvenue, SneakerStudio, Sneakerbaas, Street Riddekerk, Suppa, The Box, Titolo, Xander Franklin, and online at
