Vans Syndicate – Derby “S” (Samples)

Check out these two sample pairs of Derby “S” ‘s from the Vans Syndicate line, due out later this year.  These popped up on eBay recently, and it appears that Vans has taken the Derby model, designed and made popular by Taka Hayashi for Vans Vault, and have put their skating touch on the shoe.  They’ve added a vulcanized sole, and Dri-Lex material to the lining, to aid in moisture absorption, as well as keeping your foot cool when it’s hot, and warm when it’s cold.  Space-age shit.  You wouldn’t understand.  Available in a suede/canvas combo, in either Black/Lake Blue, or Navy/Warm Grey.  These make for a great skate shoe, but as far as design goes, I believe the Derby belongs on a crepe sole.  What are your feelings on that?  These are now available on eBay in a sz9, in both colorways here.
