Coil R 1 John’s ROOS
John’s ROOS - a tribute to John, sneaker lover and founder of the “KangaROOS Talk” community on Facebook, who recently passed away at the age of 34.
Please note that a PREORDER SYSTEM is being used for this shoe:This particular shoe is limited to 400 pairs. Orders can be placed until Sept 30, 2020. After that the shoes will be shipped within 4 months.
The first pair will be given to John’s wife. Furthermore we‘ll donate 100% of the revenue generated through the sale of the first 34 pairs to John’s Family – symbolically one for each year of John’s life. On top of that we’ll donate another 10% of the sales for every single pair of John’s ROOS that we sell.
The model was designed with the input we received from John’s wife and the Facebook community: John’s favorite model was the COIL R-1. We used a vegetable tanned cow leather of highest quality in a color scheme that felt as the greatest tribute to what John loved: soft, neutral, with a hint of aqua. John was a dog lover and his dog once chewed up a pair of KangaROOS. This explains the paws that will be embossed on the heel. The insole features the text that John had tattooed around his ancle.
