The famous German brand KangaROOS unveils a third collaborative silhouette as part of its « Traditions Pack ». After the « Denim » and the « Kord » (available on this site), a « Tweed » is added to this collection. Based on the high-end KangaROOS Coil R2 model, this shoe was designed with Harris Tweed Authority.
Harris Tweed Authority is an independent statutory public body created by the Harris Tweed Act in 1993, replacing 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). »
Sharing the same values and lovesame for beautiful materials, craftsmanship and attention to detail, KangaROOS and Harris Tweed Authority naturally partnered to develop a collaborative Coil R2, which will of course be made in Germany at the renowned high-end shoe factory, Hummel und Hummel.
This MiG shoe is composed of a combination of tweed and suede in a green, brown, beige and grey color palette. The base, in 2 shades of green tweed, is complemented by honey brown suede overlays on the front of the foot and beige with touches of pearl grey on the back. To symbolize the collab, the hammer and chisel logo is embroidered in lime green on the heel and the tongue tag features the co-branding. The whole is based on a white midsole with DYNACOIL cushioning and a gumsole.
