Much like the Syndicate series, the Vans Vault series has gained notoriety as Vans’ launching point for some the brand’s more liberal aesthetics. 2008’s fall collection yields much of the same as select team-ups are complimented by the use of materials often seen as a rarity on Vans. One of the more interesting concepts are the use of checker dyed pony hair uppers. Look for these to start relaeasing later this summer at select Vans Vault dealers.

The Hundreds San Francisco: Pre-Post

Although never having the opportunity to visit The Hundreds second addition to their growing empire, The Hundreds San Francisco, the pictures have provided a small sense of what the retail experience entails. However I’m pretty sure not amount of visual will replace the actual experience as you venture into the cave. The extensive design process has recently been outlined by Bobby Hundreds as the steps from start to finish is outlined. With a theme of creating an amusement park ride inspired by Indiana Jones, The Goonies and 2001, for many I’m sure the goal has been well achieved.

WTAPS x Vans Syndicate Bash

Although a group shot revealed exactly what was in store come the initial shipment of WTAPS x Vans Syndicate releases starting this month, detail shots were sparse. Here’s a look into the upcoming Bash, set to release this June. WTAPS had complete control and direction for this latest Syndicate collection as the Bash fuses late 80s/early 90s hip hop culture with high end and street fashion. The colorways were chosen to represent the era with highlights including a revamped checkerboard pattern. Look for this to hit Tokyo’s Blackflag in Aoyama this weekend. Source: TET

Nike "King of the Mountain" Air Max 90 Quickstrike

The recent surfacing of Nike’s pack of sneakers referencing all-time favorites left many fans wanting more beyond the preliminary one-angle image. Having said that, here’s a further look into the “King of the Mountain” Air Max 90 inspired largely in part by the Air Mowabb of generations past. The use of the symbolic colorway draws immediate association with the old ACG model. Lots of details can be seen on these 90s from the two sets of laces to clear midsole. Many shops are looking to release these before the end of the month so check your local Quickstrike dealer for availability, however be certain that STANDARD will be releasing their shipment sometime next week.
