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.

“Made in Germany“, is KangaROOS’s handcrafted line, based in Munchweiler near the shoe city Pirmasens. The ‘Made in Germany’ line is a sustainable statement in the sneaker business and a small token for local manufacturing in Germany. Since 2014, collaborations and special editions with strong partners complement the established models.
The latest addition of the “Made in Germany” line is the collaboration with the world famous sneaker store “OVERKILL”.
KangaROOS and OVERKILL created a limited edition of the iconic model COIL R-1 using high quality materials :
The OVERKILL x KangaROOS Coil R-1 “Grape Pack”.
This exclusive, very limited pack comes in two colors. It’s an homage to the German wineries and its winemakers. They were inspired by the colors burgundy and grape blue, reminiscent of hand-picked grapes from local vineyards. Completing the exclusivity and rarity of both R-1 COIL models are a fine leather lining and branded OVERKILL logo. Each pair is individually numbered on the inner side of the tongue and provided with an OVERKILL lacetag.
The package also includes an exclusive, handmade in Berlin, original wooden sneakerbox, which was never seen in the global market.
