KangaROOS Ultimate MIG Veteran - Make Love, Not War - Camo
KangaROOS for Autumn Winter 2019
There are times when we need to bethink of values like humanity and openness of mind and heart - which are getting more and more pushed back in our society nowadays.
Woodstock used to be a symbol against Vietnam and the cold war…and it still is. *Make Love, not War* was the No.1 slogan of the Hippie-Times - even John Lennon and Yoko Ono were singing it - just a few words that became a guiding theme for a whole generation. This year the mother of all festivals celebrates its 50th birthday. KangaROOS just turned 40, so ROOS thought of bringing like-minded spirits together to create a peaceful sneaker made of used german army tents!
The tents were used and gave shelter to women and men on active service. Professionally cleaned the manufacturers processed them into Made in Germany sneaker-art. Major parts of the upper consist of the army camouflage in combination with suede and calfs leather from Italy - materials that feature the “Blue Angel“, an award for product alternatives with a higher ecological standard. The outsole is made of rubber and the midsole features the DYNACOIL shock absorption system. The Veteran is a quiet but a beautiful protest that also focuses on sustainability by using used materials from the german forces.
