Concepts is set to deliver another collaborative sneaker, this time hitting up Vans Syndicate to bring fans a new Old Skool mockup. The classic silhouette gets reequipped with a washed denim upper, off-white toe hits on the toe and heel, as well as a checkered midsole and grey panels that imitate the look of duct tape. As always, Concepts makes a point of telling a story that succinctly coincides with the release, and the dialogue this time is in reference to legendary Boston-based dive bar The Rathskeller. As New England’s version of CBGB, The Rathskeller played host to names like The Ramones, Beastie Boys, Bad Brains, Sonic Youth and many more before its closing in 1997. The “Rat Hunter” sneaker will be dropping Thursday, October 4 for $90 USD, with availability being offered in-store and online from Concepts.
