With the Maloof Money Cup going on in New York this weekend, a whole slew of events have been going down in the city over the last couple of days. We were on hand to check a few out, including this one here. Prior to hitting the town, I wandered over to Shut to check out the latest installment from one of the best labels around today, Vans Syndicate. For this release, New York street skating fixture Rodney Smith linked up with Vans to put out two extremely high quality pairs of shoes, which we showed you here a few days ago. In addition to the shoes, Rodney Smith skate decks, a special Vans tee and Starter hat bearing the Syndicate name were also made available.
