The adidas Stan Smith made its grand return in January and February has been about establishing partnerships for new collaborations.  We’ve seen Opening Ceremony’s ‘Baseball’ edition and the NEIGHBORHOOD and CLOT makeups, and pictured above is another elegantly expressive collab courtesy of a Japanese brand.  The mastermind Japan Stan Smith is as clean as they come in black leather with white on the laces, sole and branding.  The upper is covered with ‘x’ perforations mimicking the mastermind logo’s crossbones, so click in to see all the fine details and be ready when they hit select Three Stripes shops on February 22nd.

When the official imagery of the CLOT x adidas Stan Smith showed up, with it came the information that there would be five total Stan Smith collabs to come from various Asian entities. It appears that Mastermind Japan is among that group, as evidenced by this first glance at their take on the iconic tennis sneaker. Of course the typical whites are reversed in order to coincide a bit more with the label’s stark, dark imagery. See the full preview after the break and keep in mind that these should be at Consortium accounts starting February 22d, 2014.

mastermind x adidas Originals ZX500

mastermind japan x adidas originals zx 500 mastermind x adidas Originals ZX500

mastermind JAPAN has another stoic, black and white sneaker collab in the works. This time around they’re in bed with adidas, taking on a treasured runner of old in the form of the adidas Originals ZX500. Their skull and crossbones logo is applied pretty literally, as the lace lock is fashioned in the shape of a little black bone. Granted, we’ve seen bones on adidas sneaks before (Think Jeremy Scott) but this go-round ends up much more subtle. See the full shoes after the jump and watch for the mastermind x adidas Originals ZX500 to release soon.

Some new detailed images of this under-the-radar collaboration of Nike Dunk Highs with mastermind Japan; these basic colorways of the Dunk are fashioned with some incredible details, like the bold mastermind branding on the heel and the skull logos on the custom tongue labels, but another hidden feature of these Premium-grade Dunk Highs is the use of the ubiquitous camo print on the insoles of the shoes. A release has already gone down at select spots in Asia, but look for these to start appearing at other choice retails soon. Looking back at 2012 – are these the best and/or most underrated Dunks of the year?

It’s been a while since we’ve seen new product from the partnership between Hirofumi Kiyonaga and Hiroshi Fujiwara, but here comes a new FC Real Bristol collaboration in time for the holiday season.  They’ve brought in mastermind JAPAN who just released their first Nike Sportswear collaboration this past weekend, and after the skull and crossbones logo played such a prominent logo in that design, these new F.C.R.B. x Nike Air Max+ 2012s opt for a subtler approach on the lateral ankles.  Black/grey and navy/gold colorups connect with the sporty aesthetic we’ve come to expect from these UE projects with a tone of darkness provided by Mastermind, and they’ll hit Kiyonaga’s SOPH on Saturday, December 22nd.

Crafted in premium leather with just black white and grey and featuring some of the most conspicuous co-branding we’ve seen since fragment design fell silent, Mastermind Japan’s first Nike Sportswear collaboration is a study in contrasts.  The Mastermind x Nike Dunk High Premium pack brings forth two classic Swoosh basketball silhouettes in styles that have an aggression similar to what you might expect from a big-time college basketball game, but channeled through the Japanese fashion label’s sinister signature look.  New shots awaiting your click below give a better view of what the sole looks like among other details, so take a closer look and let us know if you’re considering one of the pairs from this past Saturday’s release, currently on eBay currently in the $550+ range.
