Vans Syndicate x 8Five2 – Authentic “S” & Cab-Lite “S” (Video and pics)

The latest international Vans Syndicate release is scheduled to drop soon, this time with Hong “Muthafucking” Kong’s very own 8FIVE2 skate shop.  This will be their third Syndicate release, and their fourth Vans release.  You may recall their Versa Mid “S” with the white toecap, as well as their Seylynn “S” which was technically a Zero Lo “S”.  Their non-“S” release was a black Chukka Low, wrapped in premium black leather, with their signature floral camo pattern on the lining, in some purple hues.  This time they will be releasing two models, the Authentic “S”, and the Cab-Lite “S”, both wrapped in their signature floral pattern, but this time in a tan and golden colorway.  Both pairs feature brown accents throughout, and sit on top of all white vulcanized soles. 8Five2 has put out this awesome video, and I’ve attached a few pics of the shoes after the jump.  Both shoes are now available for purchase from 8FIVE2’s webshop!

Fun fact:  Those of you who are new to Vans collecting, and those of you who were original Offthewallsite (RIP) members, may have never heard of their first collab, the all black Chukka Low, with this same floral print (except in purple) for the inside lining.  It released sometime between the old and new OTWS, and wasn’t on a lot of people’s radar, but being that they were produced in limited numbers, they attracted a few of us die-hard collectors.  Mine are still on ice!
