Taking inspiration from its favored DV Tape camcorder, the Sony VX1000 that launched in 1995, this pair not only adopts the videocamera’s name but also puts forth a colorway and design influenced by the iconic piece of tech. The VX1000 has a legendary status in the video scene, having made a name for itself with skateboarding videos thanks to its compact but robust structure and fisheye lens.
The EASYdoesit x KangaROOS Ultimate Made in Germany “VX1000” comes in an apt colorway of “Jet Black/Steel Gray,” with its mint coloring being used all around on elements such as the outsole and heel branding to reference the camera parts. There’s a number of unique elements on the shoe — for example, the rear-quarter sports a stamp reading “361CCD Digital Zoom 20 X” as another nod to the VX1000, while 3M has been added all around to reference a camera’s flash.
Take a look at the EASYdoesit x KangaROOS Ultimate Made in Germany “VX1000” above, and pick up a pair for yourself from stockists such as 43einhalb when it releases on November 28. The sneaker is set to cost €249.95 EUR (approx. $298 USD).
