OVERKILL x PONY „Lady Liberty“ Runner
Not too long ago, in the year 2012 to be exact and a year after the beginning of a cooperation between PONY and OVERKILL, an exciting quest began to find a long lost treasure.
It was a hunt for a vintage Runner, a performer from way back when, a forgotten sneaker lost in time. OVERKILL
re-discovered this missing silhouette on a ”Whats on my feet today” post and presented it to the shoe manufacturer from New York with the knowledge that such running silhouette’s are very much loved all over the european scene. This discovery and the accompanied WOMFT posting created great interest and excitement at PONY. The New Yorkers were now determined to help track down the origins of the runner and bring it back to life.
Now 2013, an appeal was launched on Instagram to assist in unraveling the mystery surrounding the missing Runner. An open call for help to obtain more information and the whereabouts of a highly sought after treasure from ancient times. But even after delving deep into the PONY archives, there was still very little information to be found.
After 9 months of searching and as fate would have it, it was OVERKILL, in Berlin, that finally brought an end to this quest. As a reward, the first collaboration for the second launch of this re-discovered runner was gladly awarded to OVERKILL.
A new milestone was set and an original PONY silhouette was re-born!
With both OVERKILL & PONY deeply rooted in the heritage of their own cities, Berlin and New York, this legend was brought back to life. Proudly presented as the ”Lady Liberty“, a strictly limited collaboration dropping on the 21.03.2015 just in time for beginning of spring.
If you look closely, you will find every inch of the Runner is dedicated to the heritage of PONY (Product of New York), and a clear homage to the memorial for peace, “Lady Liberty“. The overriding colours of oxidised copper mint and grey cement provide the colour scheme of the shoe, reminiscent to the tones of the Statue of Liberty.
From this point onward, we’ll let you embark on your own bounty hunt adventure ….

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.

Berlin State Of Mind – Premiere – 26.04.2014 – Kino Eiszeit
A Berlin State Of Mind is a documentary about four different people and their stories while living in Berlin Kreuzberg. The protagonists are accompanied by director Boris Saposchnikow during their everyday life. With interviews he draws a colorful picture of the multicultural district and its extraordinary inhabitants.
Sil-Yan conquers the German club & hiphop scene as DJ Craft, while the 103 years old Elfriede shares her life experience. Despite being wheelchair-dependent, Hans-Georg is still politically revolting and Yasin gets into a dispute with the controversial Thilo Sarrazin.
Via the intimate angle of the film camera observing the protagonists, A Berlin State Of Mind leads to different places of Kreuzberg and mediates the attitude of life, contradiction and development of this unique microcosm.
As a result of two years of work since 2012, this documentary developed into a professional and elaborate film. The shots, editing and extra produced film score are combined to a portrait, an homage, a critic, a proof of love and entertainment as well as a warning signal for the collapse of a myth. Produced with no budget, director Saposchnikow is responsible for the production, direction, editing as well as the film score. Grzegorz Olszowka (works for WASSBASS, K.I.Z., Prinz Pi) and Kev Beats X KS Beats (K.I.Z., Mach One) supported him with the score.
