So what’s so unique about these shoes? Well, ever seen sneakers using real fish skin? KangaROOS and Bisso combined premium suede with authentic tanned fish leather, giving these shoes a truly distinctive characteristic.
Bisso drew inspiration from the world of concrete and nature in which he practises ‘street fishing’ – a sport to hunt fish in the local waterways within a city. The shoes are a perfect balance of different shades of grey, with splashes of vibrant colours, reminiscent of the fish and the environment in which they reside.
The Trout II’s defining fish leather was sustainably sourced from food industry waste, and created using a vegetable tanning process. With only 500 pairs on the market, each pair has the numbering at the heel of the right shoe. You’ll also find a rainbow trout heel stamp, and the collaborative branding on the tongue. In line with their efforts at sustainability, each pair also comes with an additional KangaROOS tote bag.
The Selecta Bisso x KangaROOS Coil R1 ‘Trout II’ is set to be released 8th of December, and will be available at select European retailers. Make sure you sign up to our newsletter, so you can stay up to date! For other KangaROOS features, click HERE.
