After some teasing, Mastermind JAPAN has unveiled their newest collaboration with Vans Japan. The capsule will consists of a Slip On, Era, and Sk8 Hi Zip JP as well as three tees.
All three shoes features classic Mastermind JAPAN stylings with all black premium leather uppers and a black and with midsole with Mastermind branding. An embroidered skull and bones Mastermind logo adorns the heel counters of all three.
The Sk8 Hi features a side zip, which is a departure from previous Zip models from Vans. While we have seen it once before with Soph.net, the usual heel zip is what we are used to. This is a bit of a nod to higher end designers whose footwear features a similarly placed zipper.
The Mastermind JAPAN x Vans JP collection is available for preorder now from californiadept. Unless you have a Japanese proxy, you won't be able to get these as they are not slated for release outside of the island. The Slip On and Era are ¥18,000 while the Sk8 Hi is ¥20,000 .
