mastermind JAPAN returns with another collaborative pair of Vans. After issuing a series of revamped Mountain Edition sneakers, the Japanese label has its sight set on the Old Skool V36 OG. The trim silhouette is nearly identical to an ordinary pair of Old Skools at first glance, with a monochrome colorway, white Jazz Stripe and matching laces. Special detailing comes in the form of a black mastermind-branded midsole, which travels around to the rear of the shoes, continuing beneath a black Vans license plate tag. A suede panel at the back sports an embroidered mastermind skull logo, tying in with the tonal suede toebox.
The upgraded skate shoes exclusively hit California Dept.’s web store on August 29.
Elsewhere, mastermind debuted its full range of collaborative BAPE gear.
