Vans has an incredible year behind itself. Their regular lines, as well as their collaborations and especially the Syndicate collection, has been very well received. With people increasingly being fed up by the multicolor faux fur patent leather reflective 3M releases by the big players in the market, Vans has carved out a solid market segment for itself, delivering solid classics in meaningful new design.
That also does not seem to stop any time soon. 2007 was certainly also the plaid year. We cannot remember a single brand out there that did not go into plaid, either in the form of shirts or sneakers. Vans takes it one step further and brings their classics together with Pendleton Woolen Mills, one of the most traditional and respected wool companies in the US. The outcome is the Pendleton by Vans pack under the Syndicate umbrella. Thanks to Crooked Tongues we can show you some first pictures of this exciting release.
The pack consists of a Sk8-Hi, Half Cab and some Old Skools. Each sneaker has an upper mixed of black premium suede and Pendleton plaid. Our favorite is for sure the Half Cab in this release. The pack will be released in February 2008!
