There is 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 50. birthday. KangaROOS just turned 40, so we thought of bringing like-minded spirits together and create a peaceful sneaker - made of used German army tents!
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 our DYNACOIL shock absorption system.
