The Vans Syndicate line, while having fairly little in common with adidas Consortium stylistically, is united with that Three Stripes collection in that both ostensibly indicate a collaborative effort, yet have been used recently as a platform for premium in-house builds. Take for example these new Vans Chukka Low ‘S’ styles from the ‘Ballistic Pack’. There’s no guest designer or really any frills whatsoever on black or red pairs, and a ballistic nylon upper, while not a traditional skate style, is most certainly a rugged material up to the task at hand. More photos await your click below, so check them out along with the latest Syndicate backpack and grab yours from Silo.
