We would like to bid adieu to Vans Syndicate's 10 year tenure with a highlight from one of our favorite partnerships from Vans' subdivision. Glorified by the WTAPS Wings emblem, the 003 series' Authentic was part of a monochromatic collection paired up with a Sk8-Hi, Chukka, and Slip-On. This collaboration drew exponential buzz and paved way to a long-term partnership between the two brands with future successful collaborations to follow shortly after. The highly coveted return of the Wings print that wrapped the canvas mid-section of the Authentic saw light once again in the recent release of Syndicate's 10 year anniversary series bringing back hype to the brand once again, but most of all, nostalgia for those who loved the original release back in '06.
Vans Syndicate will forever remain a coveted brand in footwear enthusiasts' hearts and continue to draw attention to new comers to the sneaker/streetwear scene.
