Vans Syndicate 028.169 x Jason Dill – OG Authentic “S” (2.7.15)

UTP_1

Jason Dill has once again blessed us all with another one of his original designs.  He chose the OG Authentic “S”, which features some subtle differences from your typical Authentic, that are more true to the silhouette of earlier years.  It’s nice to see that he takes his opportunities seriously, and really digs deep for inspiration and creativity.  We’ve included a few of his notepad sketches so you can get a rare look into the creative process.  Some were even jotted down on top of a newspaper article.  Great ideas need to be written down as soon as possible!  If you’re a fan of his Fucking Awesome brand, then you’ll be stoked to know that he incorporated his childhood photo that all you FA fans are familiar with, on the tongue of each shoe, and it appears the photo was taken from one of his boards, before and after being skated.  Why didn’t anybody else ever think of that?!  Vans was so on board with this shoe, that they decided to create a custom box for it, covered in the same art, and they gave it a special release date, being this Saturday the 7th, at all Syndicate dealers who ordered them.

Now for some official press info and pics, thanks to Silo (available on their webstore, Saturday):
