There has been much speculation over the last few months about Syndicate reissuing its most iconic models for 2016. Some people are reporting that this is the final year for the 'S' label and that they intend to go out on a high note. At least part of that gossip was confirmed today when Vans posted the newest Syndicate release online, a reissue of the first 'S' pair in a new colorway.
The original Mr. Cartoon Authentic 'S' was released back in 2005 in blue, white, and black denim with Mr. Cartoon's iconic clown art emblazoned on the white canvas sides. This years reissue will feature the same artwork and materials but will be washed in all black. Forgoing the triple colorway, this year it will only be available in black. Arriving in a custom designed, 10 year anniversary white drawer box, the shoes will also arrive with a Syndicate dust bag, sticker sheet, and flat grey extra laces.
The Vans Syndicate Mr Cartoon Authentic S 029 Retro will arrive at Select Syndicate accounts start July 18th.
