mastermind Japan & Cole Haan Combine Punk Touches With Classic Comfort

The Japanese label takes on the brand’s formal footwear.

The first collaboration between streetwear label mastermind JAPAN and America’s Cole Haan was unveiled for spring/summer 2016, and the two brands have reunited for the fall/winter 2017 season to create a fresh take on the 2.ZERØGRAND silhouette. The latest collaborative shoe features classic Cole Haan touches, such as an integrated motion outsole, Flex welt and energy foam footbed cushions to maximize comfort.

The shoe comes with an all-black leather upper, as well as either a white or black sole. It also references mastermind’s punk roots with the brand’s iconic skull and cross bones logo appearing as detailing on the upper, the inner lining and as a repeated print on the sole’s heel and toe. mastermind JAPAN’s take on Cole Haan’s 2.ZERØGRAND is available now from the American brand’s web store, with the shoe’s priced at $320 USD.

This isn’t the only footwear collaboration that mastermind has unveiled recently, with the brand also teaming up with SUICOKE for an ELS-VM2 boot.
