If you’ve been following sneaker stories around the web, you’ve probably heard of the famed collaboration of American footwear apparel, Cole Haan and Japanese punk & streetwear fashion house, Mastermind. You probably also learned that this collab is only available in Japan.
Welp, guess what? We’re having them right here! Cole Haan X Mastermind drops in Cole Haan Shangri-La & Cole Haan Power Plant Mall today, May 21, 2016, but in extremely limited quantities (so if you’ve been wanting this in your collection you better rush to Cole Haan Shangri-La after reading this article :p).
There are two styles to choose from: the Cole Haan x Mastermind Japan ZERØGRAND Wing Oxford and Cole Haan x Mastermind Japan ZERØGRAND Chukka.
Both styles feature Cole Haan’s innovative ZERØGRAND technology (which we thoroughly loved here at Unpacked) —the astonishingly lightweight, adaptively flexible and responsively cushioned sole technology. Mastermind Japan’s iconic skull logo and monochrome black palette have been smartly integrated throughout Cole Haan’s pinnacle ZERØGRAND silhouettes, which has resulted in a high-impact collection that synergistically marries the styles of both global brands.
It’s interesting to see exclusive collaborations like these hit local Cole Haan shops! With recent successful events like their Last Lunar Day Sale and previous Black Friday Sales, as it seems that the local Cole Haan community is growing so much so that we’re now getting exclusive releases that was originally meant for just a specific market. I don’t think US is getting this any time soon, so that’s saying something about how Cole Haan Philippines is paving the way of making the Philippines a priority market for Cole Haan New York! Wewe!
With this, we’d like to congratulate Cole Haan Philippines for doing an amazing job at growing the market and here’s hoping that we get more exclusive releases and exciting deals here in the country.
