As we’ve witnessed first-hand during our visit to the HUMMEL & HUMMEL factory for our Sneakers Mag #37 issue, the folks at KangaROOS are all about quality when it comes to their sneakers. And lucky enough, this outstanding kind of attention to craftsmanship isn’t limited to special releases like the much talked about Jägermeister collab. But since maintaining these quality standards for all products acquire both expertise and skills, KangaROOS drew inspiration from another precise profession for their first “Made in Germany” in-line model.
Proficient wine connoisseurs may be familiar with the Shiraz grape variety, a type of grape that originates from France and is known for its intricate cultivation. That’s why KangaROOS not only chose the name “Shiraz” for their premium take on the Coil R1, but also applied a wine-themed design to the silhouette. A fine calfskin leather upper with toe box and side panel perforations was dipped into a velvety tone of burgundy.
The mid-palate is characterized by crisp white DYNACOIL cushioning, while peach accents on the laces, side logos, heels and outsoles provide a fruity finish. And to decant this noble drop properly, the specially made box of the Coil R1 Shiraz features a wine label-inspired design and also includes a cork hangtag.
