mastermind JAPAN x Vans Mountain Edition Is Back in Black
One more facelift.
After debuting a warm-hued iteration earlier this month, mastermind once again readies a rework of the Vans Mountain Edition. Unlike October’s iteration, this drop sees the shoe executed in substantial black cotton.
The shoe’s material has changed but the design is the same. Branding on the upper and midsole is intact, and it still features a checkered translucent outsole. The inner side of the sneaker features a zipper for easy access while mastermind JAPAN’s iconic skull-and-crossbones logo is embroidered on the shoe’s heel. This shoe eschews the grain leather from October’s drop for a thick cotton, retaining the monochrome colorway furthered by including black and white sets of laces.
mastermind’s latest take on the sneaker retails for approximately $210 USD. Keep an eye on the brand’s site for the release. Meanwhile, Vans returns to its roots with a pair of checkerboard sneakers.
