It might seem like adidas is taking the 50th anniversary celebration of the Stan Smiths way too far. Almost every week there's a Stan Smith collaboration being released. However, these slick black Stan Smith editions from mastermind JAPAN really caught our eye.

Part of the consortium releases, these Stan Smith x mastermind JAPAN versions feature a premium black leather upper with an "X" perforation all around the shoe except for the toe box.

On the tongue is the apparel company’s logo of a skull and crossbone with the same motif on the heel. The outsole is in an off-white color with the adidas branding on the base of the shoe.

Unlike fellow Japanese retailer Neighborhood's Stan Smith collaboration, mastermind was smart enough to leave the toe box bare without any unnecessary branding to give their black silhouette its clean look.

The adidas Consortium Stan Smith x mastermind JAPAN sneaker is a must-cop for the well-heeled sneakerhead. See what we did there?

The shoes will be available on Feb. 22 at select retailers like Hanon Shop and No.74 Berlin for $170.
