Thatboii II X KangaROOS 'Le Club'
"Basketball has always been and will always be an important part of my life. The players are more than just athletes and I like that they don't set limits for themselves. Especially Jordan! What he has done for the sport of basketball and fashion is second to none, but one part of his story is actually a bit overlooked. He also "balled" on the golf course, which served as a great inspiration for the second shoe and the collection."- Chelo, Founder and Creative Designer of THATBOII.
Thatboii x KangaROOS 'le club' (the golf)
As you might have guessed from looking at the two pictures so far, the new sneakers have something to do with golf. Although golf is actually a previously untouched sport for the founder of THATBOII, Chelo finds something in it that fascinates him. As he says in the quote above, he was inspired by basketball legend Michael Jordan for his upcoming collection 'le club de golf' and the new kicks.
Athletes with a natural urge to compete, like MJ, like to retreat to the golf course alongside the pressure to perform on the basketball court in order to relax while still staying in game mode.
The Details - THATBOII x KangaROOS 'le club'
So from the first collaboration with KangaROOS, where the design theme represented the BMX scene, it's now moving in a different interesting direction. But now that you know all the interesting backgrounds of THATBOII's design on the new KangaROOS silhouette, it's time to take a closer look at the nice shoes!
Here they are, the clean THATBOII x KangaROOS 'le club'! 🔥🔥
On the whole, we get an aesthetic, super clean design with soft colours, just like the first release of the two players. Let's start with the base: Here we get the finest mesh in white, which extends to the tongue.
High-quality suede adorns the overlays of the shoes in a light grey tone, while other overlays in the eyelet area give the entire upper a beautiful accent in dark green. Finally, the sneaker has a midsole in off-white.
But of course there is one thing we must not forget: The branding of the two brands! To complete the whole thing, THATBOII and KangaROOS have of course also immortalised their collaboration by name on the shoes. The logos of the two brands can be found on the two shoes under the eyelet area.
In addition, the new THATBOII x KangaROOS 'le club' comes with three pairs of laces. You can see them and the kicks from different perspectives in the pictures at the bottom of the post. The people from THATBOII have once again put in a lot of effort and created an extremely aesthetic and fashion-conscious shoot with awesome results. Thumbs Up!
