adidas consortium zx 420 “quotoole” coming soon to overkill!!
ONLINE FROM 00:01H
INSTORE FROM 11:00H
shop link found here
In conjunction with the Quote’s Archive project, adidas sneaker collector Quote and UK illustrator Peter O’Toole were given the opportunity to makeover an archive shoe, both being enticed by the zx420 for different reasons. Collaborating entirely online, the pair did not meet until the final sample was produced, but the long-distance design process seems to have paid off.
With numerous panels to play with, the zx420 offered numerous opportunities to experiment with colours and tones, but in the end their inspiration was taken from a particular pair of vintage adidas Denver from Quote’s collection. A high quality pale blue soft suede overlay sits on iconic mesh in darker shades of blue, whilst red colour blocking on the midsole and along the 3-Stripes add a pop of colour. Purple and magenta feature on the tongue and ankle padding respectively, and a subtly vintage cream midsole give the shoe a classic ’80s runner feel.
Each designer’s imprint is present, with their faces featured on the ‘Endorsed by’ fabric label under the tongue, and a motif sock-liner design, utilising Quote’s fist logo and O’Toole’s typographic namesake.

OVERKILL X KangaROOS Coil R-1 “ABYSS FLIP” COMING SOON TO OVERKILL!
OVERKILL X KangaROOS Coil R-1 “ABYSS FLIP”
EXCLUSIVE: ONLY AT OVERKILL
SHOP LINK HERE
CHECK OUT OUR BEAUTIFUL OVERKILL X KangaROOS Coil R-1 “ABYSS FLIP” ON THE NEXT ISSUE OF SNEAKER FREAKER MAGAZINE!
Another version of the masterpiece COIL R-1 ABYSS from the sneaker institutions OVERKILL und KangaROOS is being released, just in time for the one-year anniversary of the successful ABYSS.
The name “Flip” came from the idea to switch up the first model’s blue/aqua colour elements, creating a new, unique version that still maintains its ties to the original Abyss. Aqua elements have been replaced by a classic turquoise.
Like the last two Overkill special editions, Abyss Flip is made by the shoe manufacturers Hummel & Hummel in Münchweiler. “This was a special project because of the personal contact with the factory director and his workers, as well as the fact that we were able to see, touch and choose the materials on site,” says Marc from OVERKILL. “We were able interact and communicate very quickly.”
The shoes are made of calf leather with unique terry-cloth insets, reflectors, and a calf-leather lining. Like in every COIL model, the patented Dynacoil shock-damping system is integrated into the sole.
Limited edition, the sneakers come in the popular, handmade wooden sneaker box (Made in Berlin). Available exclusively at OVERKILL.
Each pair is individually numbered!

OVERKILL X KangaROOS Ultimate ( 4702D 460 / Dark Navy ) – “Craftsman Champions” – MADE IN GERMANY
OVERKILL X KangaROOS Ultimate ( 4702D 250 / Mid Grey ) – “Craftsman Champions” – MADE IN GERMANY
“Made in Germany” – that’s the name and the essence of KangaROOS’ current handcrafted collection. Exclusively handmade in Münchweiler, a small village adjacent to traditional shoe production town Pirmasens, it’s a statement about quality and sustainability in the sneaker business, and it serves as an example for local manufacturing in Germany.
Continuing a series of collaborations and special editions, the latest addition to the “Made In Germany” line is another collaborative model with world-renowned sneaker store heavyweights OVERKILL: the KangaROOS Ultimate “Craftsman Champions” – a model that nods to the “heroes in the shoemaking crafts” and pays tribute to the workers who produce the entire “Made In Germany” collection in Münchsweiler.
100 years ago, in 1914, the city of Pirmasens hosted no less than 240 shoe factories; a business that employed more than 14,000 workers. Today, only a handful of these factories remain in business – the Münchsweiler plant being a rare exception. With the release of the OVERKILL x KangaROOS Ultimate “Craftsman Champions” model, OVERKILL wants to celebrate traditional craftsmanship and the incredible skills of those last shoemakers standing in this former “shoe capital”.
The Made in Germany edition of the OVERKILL x KangaROOS Ultimate “Craftsman Champions” shoe combines highest quality materials and classic, traditional craftsmanship to create a clean, sporty look and feel.
Coming in two classic color-ways, royal blue and gray, this update to the Ultimate perfectly manages to blend fashion, athletic lifestyle and sleek design. Completing the exclusive look, both color-ways come with a fine leather and cotton lining and an embroidered OVERKILL logo patch on the heel. Each pair is individually numbered inside the tongue and provided with an OVERKILL lacetag.
Both versions of the “Craftsman Champions” shoe also include an exclusive wooden sneaker-box: Handmade in Berlin, these boxes have so far only been available with the COIL R-1 “Grape Pack” release and have never been sold before.
