Skate them! I've seen a shredded pair before, they look really cool. And the rubber is good on those, so you can't go wrong.
Fsho, I'm down for it. Personally though which would you prefer to skate in if you had the choice?

^YES YES YES


Many of the Vans people buy at the mall to skate in aren't even skateable anymore. They began using different rubber compunds for the GR Vans and they wear out incredibly fast. 4 days of skating comepletely anihilates the soles.


Buy Vault/Syndicate ONLY. That's the way to go for comfort and support, as well as quality on and off the board.
Thats a bit disappointing.

Personnaly I'd skate the black/white jazz stripe ones. They're Syndicate so they have the insoles to hold up for skating as well as dri-lex interior lining for moisture control.
The mesh Old Skools don't have real insoles, just those same bullshit glue-in ones everyone's used to seeing. I don't know about you but after wearing/skating pairs with the PU insoles, I can't stand the standard ones. They just aren't comfortable.

On a side note, trolls really hurt my feelings, etc.

My concern with the Sup blk/slv Old Skools were the fact that they have a leather interior. Though it sounds nice to have on a shoe. It may be a bit impractical to skate in. I feel you dude. Good thing theres still some Syndicates out there, Vans really put thought into them. More I'm interested to see the Vans Diemme shoes. I'm wondering how skatable those are going to be. They look like they're going to be very comfortable, and the fit might be a bit better on them.

@blackplague I wouldn't skate the blk/slv ones. Just Syndicate, since they're made with skate-friendly materials. I'd go with the mesh pair over the blk/slv I think.

No one's going to skate the Diemme's. Even if someone picked up a sample pair, they would just resell them. The Diemme pairs aren't made with the normal Vulc sole. Every part of the shoe is hand made in Italy and the retail is expected to be in the $200-$300 range from what I hear. But I definitely want the Sk8 Hi's and Slip On's from that drop just to have/wear casually.

Aight. I'm thinking of doing a lil article comparing and contrasting the Sup Old Skools vs the Syndicate Old Skools. 

Truth. Though I can still dream about it happening haha. Maybe Diemme might use their own soles then? How they are hand made I hope they go all out with them all leather interior, waxed and leather laces, dust bag, etc. I like how they modified the fit of the Sk8 Hi. I have a feeling they'll likely come out with an Authentic and Era as well. At least I hope they do.

Yesterday, I picked up the 35th anniversary old skool in the black. I have a regular pair as well in size 10, so asked my shop is they had any 10's in stock... Unfortunately they didn't asked to see how the 11's fitted and surprisingly they were the exact same size. Not sure if all syndicates have a smaller fit? Any experience with you guys?

The internet carries a few Vans models.

Anyone know anything about places stocking the 35th syndicate black sk8 hi's? I've looked everywhere and after getting the old skools, I kinda really want the hi's.
