Berlin’s Overkill is set to celebrate their one-year anniversary of the “Abyss” edition with another collaboration of the KangaROOS Coil R1 dubbed “Abyss Flip.”
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 Aqua elements have been replaced by a classic turquoise.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.
The “Abyss Flip” Coil R1 is set to release this Saturday, November 1st in-store and online over at Overkill.
