Words via Vans Syndicate Briefing:

“Vans Syndicate proudly presents the one and only true O.G. godfather of West Coast gangster rap, former Crenshaw gangster pimp turned social commentator, Grammy Award winning mid-eighties founder of early hip-hop collective Rhyme Syndicate, the ever controversial and never complacent, acclaimed actor and respected metal head, Tracy Marrow, otherwise known as Ice-T.  Ice put his stamp on this Syndicate project with an O.G. theme in two directions as Ice-T described them: “One’s more gangster.  One’s more pimp.”

The “more gangster” model is Ice’s Sk8-Hi OG “S” in traditional black suede and white canvas with Slauson Swap Meet -style embroidered fixings (Body Count, OG, Rhyme Syndicate and Ice-T).  Pigskin linings and sockliners stamped with Ice’s lyrics in gold foil throughout.

For Ice’s “more pimp” model, he chose a Chukka Decon “S”,  featuring an added heel pull with “OG” embroidery on an otherwise deconstructed upper with elegantly perforated quarter panels, the Chukka Decon “S” is composed of high quality nubuck and tonal labeling and also featuring pigskin linings and sockliners stamped with Ice’s lyrics in gold foil throughout.
