For their latest collaboration, Berlin sneaker store Overkill teamed up with KangaROOS on an unisex COIL duo. The Overkill x KangaROOS Adam & Eve colorways take inspiration from the history of creation of mankind.
Also alluding to Overkill’s main boutique and the special Women store in Berlin, the two sneakers represent Adam and Eve. Leaf and mist green tones grace the upper of the “Adam” COIL-R1, which features a mix of smooth and structured leather. As a reference to nudity, the “Eve” Omnicoil uses a combination of cream tan and pale nude colors on the same material mix.
A red structured leather tongue appears on both sneakers to portray the snake. Each tongue shows a leather label with co-branded KangaROOS and Overkill logos. On the insoles, “Adam” displays a leaf graphic while “Eve” illustrates the bite of the apple.
Both shoes also come with two lace tag options, one in white gold and a tonal one. They feature “ADAM & EVE” engravings, apple and leaf symbols as well as the Overkill logo. Three different laces add further possibilities for individualization.
Next to the sneakers, the printed special boxes also contain a sticker postcard and a “seedball” made of clay and plant seeds. A theme-related sticker sheet and a collector’s pin set round off the collaboration project.
