The Nike Dunk High took a bit of a backseat in 2012 as older brother Air Force 1 celebrated a huge milestone with tons of heat, but finishing off the year with a super-limited collaboration suggests good things to come for this Swoosh basketball pillar.  Bringing along a Japanese brand whose black/white stylings have previously graced Converse and Vans collaborations, this Dunk High Premium two-pack by mastermind JAPAN plays with glossiness and makes its presence obvious with huge heel branding.  They’ll be on sale at select Japanese retailers this Saturday; does this kind of collabo have what it takes to make an impact on the US market as well?

If you look back on 2011 remembering that you bought a sneaker collaboration designed by mastermind JAPAN, you know it was black, and it featured an ‘extra’ zipper.  A couple weeks after we got a look at their checkerboard-lined, heel-zipped Vans Sk8-His, the mastermind x Converse Jack Purcell Hi Zip is brought to market and reminds us it was first on the scene back in October.  They’ve got the brand’s trademark skull and crossbones on the heels with a paradoxical ‘LOVE & PEACE’ message atop the Purcell’s toe ‘smile’ that seems to fit the simplest of all high-contrast colorways.  Click through so you can see all the details on these and hit up your overseas connects to get your hands on these through mastermind’s ZOZO store.

mastermind JAPAN x Vans Sk8-Hi

mastermind JAPAN doesn’t always collaborate with major sneaker brands, but when they do, it’s going to be black.  We’re not exactly dealing with the most interesting man in the world here, but mastermind’s take on the immortal Vans Sk8-Hi does indeed apply some attention-grabbing twists to one of the skate scene’s design pillars.  Goign with a simple black and white combo, mastermind alters the classic vulc sole so that it’s mostly black behind a white kickplate and the outsole reveals a checkerboard pattern similar to the one on this pair’s sockliner.  It’s from there you’ll find the shoe’s signature element, a heel zipper that keeps these in step with some of the other notable collabos of Japanese origin we’ve seen in 2011.  How do they compare with the Blazer AB or Air Magma Zip?  Let us know when you click through to see more images and get with your Far East peeps now, because these are available at Bobos for a short time.

mastermind JAPAN x Converse Jack Purcell Mid

It’s been nearly three years since Mastermind Japan applied a stud to the top eyelet and skull to the tongue of a black Chuck Taylor All Star, so this newest collaboration is long overdue.  The Mastermind x Converse Jack Purcell Mid employs a similar motif, but the result is quite different owing to a few subtle changes.  We’ll start at the tongue, where the skull logo has been displaced in favor of a subtler pair with crossbones and a script embroidery.  The ankle collar still sees its top eyelet replaced by a stud, but instead of a zipper going down to the sole from the heel, you get it on the lateral side panels so that the skull can rest on the heel cup.  All these changes plus a ‘MASTERMIND’ handstyle on the toecap means these’ll be a must-have when they release on December 1st at select Converse stores.  via HB//boundlezz
