WIP, or ‘Work in Progress’ is Carhartt’s avant-garde label, a clothing collection heavily influenced by the intersection of this brand’s rugged blue-collar heritage and reciprocal influences in the skate and streetwear communities. Their latest project is a collaboration with a brand that is to skateboarding what Carhartt is to workwear, as Vans Syndicate suits up four new styles of a classic lowtop set to spring on us tomorrow. The Carhartt WIP x Vans Syndicate Old Skool comes in three monochromatic colorways and one covered in four-color camo, and you can see that last one prominently displayed in the clever promo video after the jump below. Get ready for the drop on Friday, August 24th and stick with Sneaker News for all your release date needs.
