Walking Collaboration

These Overkill and New Balance collaborative product comes with printed insoles featuring the Berlin Wall.

Another collaborative project, by Adidas, bares a logo of two hands in a collaborative handshake. It seems to resemble the logo of the former East German ruling party, SED. 

SED (Sozialistische Einheitspartei Deutschlands), or the Socialist Unity Party, was founded by a merger of the communists and the social democrats in 1946, symbolised in by the handshake.
