Shawn Stussy’s label S/Double has created a lot of talk and speculation recently and this project with Vans Syndicate looks to have added to the positive image set out. Here is a look at the AV SK8 Lo designed by one of street cultures godfathers inspired by a marine come boating theme. Here is Shawn Stussy’s run down of the collaboration.

I was approached by buddies at Vans to take an existing style they were already running and pick some materials, colors and such… I decided to massage the avsk8lo model because I felt they never gave this model enough love in the choices available… So here you have it, thick waxy leather up front, ballistic nylon where normally canvas would be used… Waxed cotton laces and a red leather footbed with some graphics… This joint will be available in Navy w/white stitching and Black w/black stitching…
