Editor’s Notes: SearchNDesign is the Italian-based underground design studio that works with brands such as Lardini, Fear of God, Greats, Nick Wooster, and United Arrows & Sons to create premium bespoke sneakers.
Tasked with taking brands’ products to the next level, it comes as no surprise that Masaaki Homma’s label, Mastermind, has teamed up with SearchNDesign to ultimately create a ultra luxe basketball-inspired high-top sneaker.
The removable neoprene sock that doubles as a house slipper is a subtle nod to Japanese culture, while the RiRi zipper and premium Italian leathers used on the upper ensure the Ghost Shox is worth its high retail price.
Flip through the three colorways above and look out for these to drop globally on February 1.
