NEW BALANCE x SNKR FRKR

SKIPPY_logo_Final

To cut a long story short, SNKR FRKR decided to continue with its trend of using ‘unique’ animal hides after the huge success of its collaboration with PUMA – using real shark skin. This time round, its kangaroo. We thought it would be cool to represent Australia while helping with the over population of these animals. I think Australia has to be one of the only countries that labels its national animal a ‘pest’.

It was also logical that since we were using kangaroo, the shoe would be nicknamed ‘SKIPPY’. The will be a mixture of mesh, suede and real kangaroo hide, so those who think its cruel need not apply. Who knows, maybe we might do a vegan friendly one next.

The shoe will be released on the 5th of December this year and we have just released the first proper pics of the shoe – as well as the first of a series of promos that we did.

Stay tuned for the release party which we are still trying to sort out…

Check out all the pics and youtube after the jump.
