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 Alpha Industries MA-1 „VAGABUND“ – Release: 28.02.2015 – 16:00h – online from 20:00H

vagbund_event_insta_update

We are proud to present our next collaboration:

This time we teamed with iconic military supplier ALPHA INDUSTRIES on a military inspired reversible MA-1 jacket just in time for the spring /summer season.
Named the „VAGABUND“, this exclusive Air Force style collaboration jacket, based on the original issued in 1959, takes inspiration from some of Berlin ́s many sub-cultures such as the now famous Graffiti & Techno scenes that have been part of the cities unique identity for a number of years. Beginning with the mid 90ies, when OVERKILL was founded, the Jacket features a reversible inner lining baring a scrapbook style collage of articles, photographs and impressions from 1992 till today. Constructed from ALPHA flight nylon in the orthodox military colorway sage-green with custom embroidery on removable patches and co-branded logo stitchings on the flag labels, zipper pullers, a hidden OVERKILL patch on the inner lining and backside, a nostalgic pencil/cigarette ‚utility‘ pocket and front tab (where the pilot would clip his oxygen mask when not in use), and finally a signal strap with a play on the statement „Remove before Flight“ instead reading „Remove before Night“.

The OVERKILL x Alpha Industries MA-1 „VAGABUND“ Jacket is a journey through time objectifying Berlin subculture from the early 90s through to the present day. With a clear focus on the graffiti and techno scenes, represented using a collage of various newspaper articles portraying important local happenings, underlining the alternative and cultural development path of Berlin counterculture. Meaningful photographs from groundbreaking photographer and symbol of Berlin nightlife, Sven Marquardt as well as a verbalized and visual form of expressing the appeal and impact of “Wasted German Youth“, left behind for the Berlin Techno scene by performance artist and designer Paul Snowden. Blunt, bold, loud and an authentic impression of Berlin life and culture.

OVERKILL originating through the love of graffiti and street art, influenced by the movement of subculture and till this day still heavily inspired by Berlin, in a harmonic cooperation with ALPHA INDUSTRIES, a company who themselves have a deep historical background and roots.

The OVERKILL x Alpha Industries MA-1 “VAGABUND„ available February 28th, in store first from 4PM (online from 8PM), linked to a special event. A very limited and individual customized patch will be included for the first lucky customers.

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!

“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.
