With Vans Syndicate celebrating its 10th anniversary this year, the brand enlisted the services of fashion label OAMC’s creative director and co-founder Luke Meier to transform a dress shoe into a classic skateboarding silhouette.
The Seylynn S will hit stores Sept. 19 and will retail for $100.
Meier, known for taking high-end fashion and transforming it into streetwear staples, used exceptional materials to style the brand’s Seylynn silhouette, including the upper consisting of all-white premium nubuck. Staying with the luxury theme, the shoe also boasts its signature Syndicate 10th Anniversary artwork in gold on the brand’s Ultracush HD footbeds.
But the shoe is a skateboarding silhouette, and sticking with its skate roots, it boasts a reinforced ollie patch on the toe panel and its original waffle gum sole.
The shoe will be available at Vans Syndicate’s select independent skateboard retailers.
Vans has engaged in other sought after collaborations as of late, most recently with the release of its work with Japanese apparel label WTAPS. The capsule collection hit stores Sept. 12 and features new takes on the OG Era LX, OG Sk8-Hi LX and OG Style 36 LX silhouettes.
