Man, sad to hear the news about him passing away. I don't use social media anymore so I didn't know until now, but I definitely remember him from that group and had spoken to him a few times in the past. Great for Kangaroos to do this for his family. Pair looks wonderful, too.What an impressive story. Can't wait to add these to my collection!

unspokensoles Absolute beauts. The second I saw the teaser pics I knew I had to have them. I actually grabbed two pairs because I wanted to be able to rock one easily and know I have a clean pair on ice. First pair just came in.KangaROOS doing a lot of great things lately. I don't mind that most are sleeping though...

I'm pretty much the same....add a gum bottom and it's a perfect collab. But I know it's just a small nitpick by us both! Ha Ha!! Congrats on the double-pick up!!unspokensoles Absolute beauts.

I don't know what else they could have done...IMO this was a near-perfect collab. The mix of colors and materials was daring, but it really works. Quality is top as usual. The pale yellow perforated suede, peach suede toebox, lilac nubuck on the tongue, and the bright pink velvet on the collar are really eye-catching.
But my favorite bits are definitely the deep teal nubuck on the back, and the awesome shade of light blue they used for the leather. The branding on the shoe is tastefully done...Just on the heel tab and lace locks. Some shops tend to really over-do it on the branding and it kills the look of the shoe, but this was just right.
The special box with the extra socks and laces was a nice touch as well. Oh, and they used copper for the lace lock and top lace hole. The Austrian release came with a copper chain that you could hang from the side of the shoe as well. Wish I could find one of those!
Only thing I would change is maybe a gum sole instead of the pink sole, but I pretty much would add a gum sole to any shoe
