Concepts x Vans Syndicate “Combat Zone” Sk8-Hi

From Porky’s to the Kennedy family, Massachusetts-based Concepts finds inspiration in some rather unexpected places. The cult store looks to a notorious, mostly forgotten chapter of Boston’s history for its latest project, a partnership with Vans Syndicate on a new iteration of the Sk8-Hi. Paying homage to an area dubbed the “Combat Zone” by writer John Cole in the ’60s, the Concepts x Vans Syndicate “Combat Zone” Sk8-Hi draws upon the debauchery and rebelliousness of a locale once known for violence, crime and prostitution. Made from premium pig suede, the sneakers feature laser-etched leather quarter panels, pink satin linings, and crystal-clear waffle treads with checkerboard patterns. Each pair also comes finished with a Combat Zone/Vans Syndicate-specific graphic package complete with dust bags and a satin-lined slider box, resulting in a delightfully decadent take on a classic skateboarding silhouette.-HypeBeast
