As part of the Vans Syndicate 10 year anniversary collection, Vans returned once-again to East Coast skateboarding pioneer Andy Kessler for a reissue of his original Syndicate Sk8-Hi. Kessler is known as a legend in the New York scene for his dedicated community work through the 1970s and 80s, building skateparks and inspiring others to take part in something bigger than themselves.
The Vans Syndicate Andy Kessler Sk8-Hi is dressed in premium leather and nubuck uppers, with bright blue shoelaces that Andy was know for customizing his Sk8-Hi’s with. Additional features include Outlast temperture management linings and perforated nubuck panels for protection and ventilation. Custom 10th anniversary artwork adorns the Ultracush HD footbeds, while a custom heel scab references the NYC subway tokens of Andy’s childhood. All this sits atop Vans original Waffle Gum sole- as if we expected anything less.
These special edition kicks will be available in limited quantities on Saturday, October 3rd at 8am PST. Be sure to be the first to get your Vans Syndicate Kessler Sk8-Hi’s!
