Today, Vans Syndicate laid to rest many months of rumors about which pairs will be released and in what colorways. This season's These Days Zine includes a list of models which will be released over the rest of the year. We will see a host of great models in new colorways with familiar names. Here is a rundown of the models and details:
029.174 / Andy Kessler Sk8 Hi Reissue NYC 'S' in black premium leather. August arrival.
029.173 / Luke Meier Seylynn 'S' in white premium leather. September arrival. These were originally called Zero Lo's.
029.172 / Max Schaaf Mountain Edition 4Q 'S' in black premium leather and textile. October arrival.
029.171 / WTAPS Authentic 'S' in yellow premium suede and printed canvas. November arrival. This is confirmation of a rumor that has been circulating all year regarding the release of the yellow WTAPS 'Wings' that were originally samples and never got a wider release. For many, these are a true grail.
This further fuels the flames of speculation that this is the final year of Syndicate, especially with the boxes for these releases being printed with 2005-2015. The photos we've included are of the original pairs and we are unsure what changes will be made to the final models. As more information and photos become available, we will report it.
