Have you ever seen a pair of sneakers made with real fish skin? KangaROOS and Bisso did it.....
After having gone to the Pyrenees mountains to fish the rainbow trout in its natural environment, Bisso simply stayed in Toulouse (4th largest city in France) in an urban environment, to practice "Street Fishing".
Street Fishing is a playful sport concept in which one uses a rod and lures to attack the waters of the city and the fish that they shelter.
In the waters of the concrete jungle often hides a rich and varied fauna. It’s in this urban setting surrounded by grey concrete buildings or made of orange bricks typical of the South of France, that Bisso found inspiration.
On the banks of the Canal du Midi, with his bike, his tote bag, his fishing rod and a few lures, he moves quickly in search of carnivores such as trout, perch or pike.
It’s this whole universe made of concrete and nature that inspired Bisso in the use of shades of grey characteristic of the city and the trout. The whole is raised by touches of pink/orange present on the fish and green recalling the colors of water.
"Thanks again to Kangaroos who gave me the opportunity to design my second Kangaroos sneaker without any constraints. This only confirms the state of mind of this brand, which is close to all those who are passionate about high quality products."
