Believe it or not, July's Instapump Fury release marked the first ever collaboration between Mastermind Japan and Reebok. Now, the two brands are back at it for the fall with not one, but two new co-branded silhouettes.

First up is the Ventilator, which is celebrating its 25th anniversary by being Reebok's go-to collab shoe this year. Although we've seen a ton of collaborations already, this Ventilator's toned down black-and-white scheme is actually pretty refreshing. Mastermind's signature skull and crossbones adorn the heel, while the insole features logos from both parties.

Meanwhile, Reebok has pulled 1985's LX8500 from the archives for a matching look. While the Ventilator is constructed with mesh underlays, the LX8500 opts for a full leather look.

These are both slated for a September 5 release in Japan, although a U.S. date has yet to be determined.
