The Vans Syndicate 10-year legacy is topped off November 14th with the final anniversary release presented by longtime collaborators WTAPS. With nearly a decade’s worth of projects in Vault by Vans and Vans Syndicate lines to date, the premium Japanese menswear label brings artful craftsmanship and sophistication to the Authentic “S” model.
As part of the first-ever WTAPS Syndicate project and originally for Japan distribution only, the striking tonal yellow Authentic “S” inspires WTAPS vision for this reissue, presenting a rich mustard hue from collar to sole, balanced by a subtle repeated WTAPS “Wings” print on the canvas panel. Designed with soft suede and canvas uppers, the Authentic “S” makes its final statement with a bold yellow gum foxing tape and complimentary printed WTAPS “Wings” laces to complete the pair. These will be available online at Midnight 12/14/15 (Friday Night) Anything left will be sold in-store on Saturday at 12pm.
