UPDATE: Amongst the stupid big list of drops going down this weekend, don't forget about this cheeky duo from the partnership of Mastermind and Reebok. Check them at stores including Sneaker Politics from September 12.
Mastermind Japan have always been about that black and white. Sure, everybody might be riding the monochrome train nowadays, but back when you were rocking your fuchsia-flavoured Ice Creams and all-over rainbow camo print hoodie to match, Mastermind head honcho Masaaki Honma resisted temptation and kept things basic, becoming a streetwear legend in the process. Mastermind have collaborated with Reebok this year to hit a number of models with their trademark understated style. In addition to the already revealed Insta Pump Fury, you can expect another two more classic runners to receive the skull and crossbones treatment – the Ventilator and the LX 8500. They might be simple, but what they lack in colour they make up for with premium leather. Both the LX 85000 and Ventilator will be releasing in select Japanese stores on September 5th, but we'll keep you posted if they receive a wider release. Pics via Fashionsnap.
