The 003 releases of the WTAPS x Vans Syndicate collab were not highly coveted when they released all those years ago. In the last 5 or so years, their popularity has skyrocketed with some deadstock models fetching upwards of $500. From that pack, one colorway remained pretty elusive. It was even a joke amongst collectors to not tell the uninitiated the true colorway name. It's not not uncommon to see the black and white colorways of the "Wings' Authentics to pop up for sale, but the gold pair almost never comes around. We think that is why Vans chose to reissue this colorway of the 003 Wings and not the white or black.
The updated version of the WTAPS x Vans Syndicate Authentic 'S' Reissue will arrive with an extended OG style foxing, premium suede on the toe and heelcaps, and the UltraCush HD footbeds. No news on the box, but we expect to see the same white 10th anniversary drawer-box we have seen with the other reissues.
The WTAPS x Vans Syndicate Authentic 'S' Reissue will arrive at Syndicate retailers globally on Saturday, November 14th. Check your local core skate shop for stocking info.
