Along with their iconic plimsolls, Vans offers several derby style lowtops, including one with the most direct name possible. London’s Slam City Skates have picked this model up for their latest collaboration, a shoe that treads the line between skate function and elegant style. This Slam City Skates x Vans Syndicate Derby is crafted in a premium golden tan leather, whose contrast stitching includes a wingtip at the toe. The corresponding perforations, corded laces and a copper top eyelet finish these off nicely, and they’re set to be unveiled at Slam City Skates East this Friday night.
