Hot on the heels of mastermind WORLD‘s collaborative drop with Timberland, the brand already has another selection of remastered boots ready to go. Designed in partnership with Japanese favorite Danner, a duo of Mountain Light II boots sport tan or black colorways emblazoned with plenty of branding. Oversized skull & crossbones logos are joined by hefty “MASTERMIND” detailing, with the side zippers boasting complementary skull detailing. Furthermore, mastermind’s JAPAN imprint has its own duo of hikers ready to go, which offer a similar look to the Danner collaboration: monochrome hues, oversized branding and embossed zippers. This pair, however, moves the skull over to the ankle instead of placing it at the side.
The mastermind JAPAN boots drop tomorrow, with the WORLD x Danner collaboration set to hit stores “very soon.”
Most recently, we spoke with the man behind the brand, Masaaki Homma.
