For the first Syndicate release of the new year, Vans have partnered with zine-maker Weirdo Dave, known for his Fuck This Life magazine, on this printed canvas Authentic.
Dave’s work utilises the traditional tools of zine making (paper, scissors and glue) to create the distinct lo-fi look. His style is transposed in a series of clashing motifs onto the toe and heel counter, alongside a woodland camo upper. The simple nature of the Authentic’s construction means there’s not much else going on here, save for the classic Vans waffle sole and black Syndicate tab on the heel.
