It’s getting icy cool for summer season on the latest drop from KangaROOS: In a collab with Swiss sneakers and streetwear platform Urbanpeople, the upcoming KangaROOS Coil-R1 MIG x Urbanpeople “Glacier” renders the classic runner silhouette in frosty blue tones on a white midsole.

The collab was inspired, not by one of the finest Wu-Tang cuts of all time – Raekwon’s “Glaciers of Ice” – but the scenic glacier landscapes of Switzerland. The color scheme of the Swiss Glacier Express also played a major role in choosing the right hues bound to add a healthy dose of cool flavor to the streets upon their May 27 release.

Complemented by white lace eyelets, the Coil-R1 MIG is constructed from premium suede with synthetic mesh uppers for a breezy overall look, supported by a responsive DynaCoil sole. The slightly extended tongue features KangaROOS branding and a discrete stash pocket.

Adding understated details, all logos have been embossed via brass stamp, including the heels, inscribed with the word GLACIER and an tunnel entry icon. As a surprising twist, the insoles are executed in bright red.

The KangaROOS Coil-R1 MIG x Urbanpeople “Glacier” is manufactured in Germany and delivered with elaborate packaging: Each box comes replete with four pairs of laces, special socks by Swiss company DillySocks and an MM75 Design toteback.

With a price tag around €249.95, the KangaROOS Coil-R1 MIG x Urbanpeople “Glacier” will release on May 27 at finer sneaker retailers including Afew, Hanon, Overkill, Sapato Store, and Urbanpeople.
