Vans Syndicate – A Look Back At Prior DEFCON Models Over The Years

013 - TNT II Mid Cup S

With the news of another DEFCON shoe release from Vans Syndicate’s “secret-ops” design firm within a design firm, I guess it’s time to drop a little bit of knowledge on all of you.  Most of you may have seen the DEFCON name mentioned here or there, and perhaps on our Instagram feed photos, but most know nothing about them, and what they do, yet you may all own a pair of shoes that they are responsible for designing.  Most of the military themed Syndicate shoes came from them, with the exception of the Carhartt Old Skool, which is of course not a US Military camo pattern anyways.  Not to say, that all they do are camo prints, because they’re the ones who created one of my favorite Vans Syndicate releases of all time, the Warrior Mtn. Edition Mid “S”. If you were able to snag the recent copy of These Days, then there’s a nice article in there about DEFCON, and their history with Syndicate.  I’ve included it after the jump!
