Around the turn of the year, it seemed like KangaROOS was ready to make the same kind of retro push we’ve seen from brands like Le Coq Sportif and Ewing Athletics over the past year. But after a flurry of activity in January, ‘The Original Shoes with Pockets’ went completely silent until today. This return to Sneaker News seems to get them back on the aforementioned track, collaborating with an established European retailer for one of their best modern releases. The Overkill x KangaROOS Coil R1 ‘Abyss’ takes on a deep sea colorway, adding aqua accents to a navy nubuck upper that uses microperforations in lieu of mesh for that perfect blend of elegance and breathability. Take a closer look below and be ready when the 200 pair run arrives with a special pin on Saturday, August 24th at Overkill.
