mastermind JAPAN designer Masaaki Honma is undoubtedly pulling all of the strings before he closes the curtain on his successful brand next year. With only a few months to go until the extinction of the Japanese label, Honma welcomes Nike into the mix. Most likely, this will be the last time these iconic companies will work together, making these sneakers highly collectible. Honma chose the classic Dunk Hi silhouette, converting the basketball shoes into premium footwear. Both styles are constructed from top-grade leather, but in particular, the all-black version uses polished panache leather. mastermind JAPAN logo is visible on the heel and outsole of the shoes. Limited quantities will be on sale at Dover Street Market Ginza, Isetan Men’s Shinjuku, and Hankyu Men’s Osaka beginning this Saturday, December 8.
