It's been a busy year for KangaROOS, with numerous joint projects with overseas retailers primarily hailing from Europe. This latest venture is no different, and is in fact the second release in partnership with Overkill in as many months. September's Coil R1 "Grape Pack" gives way to this "Craftsman Champions" Pack, utilizing grey and royal blue colorways of the KangaROOS Ultimate. The kicks were handmade in the small German village of Münchweiler, adjacent to the traditional shoe production town Pirmasens, home to no less than 240 shoe factories a century ago. Today, only a handful of these factories remain, Münchsweiler among the remaining few. The Overkill x KangaROOS Ultimate "Craftsman Champions" pack pays homage to the old-world skills of those last shoemakers sill standing in the former German "shoe capital." Limited to 100 pairs per colorway, each pair is individually numbered and comes packaged with an Overkill lace tag and handmade wooden sneaker-box. The kicks launch October 11th at Overkill, both in-store and online.
