Leather? Check. Snakeskin? Check. Leopard Print? Check.
No, this isn’t a look inside the late, great Pat Butcher’s wardrobe, it’s the Spring 2012 collab from Vans and pro skaters Jason Dill and Anthony Van Engelen!
The three-piece Syndicate ‘S’ collection of low top sneaks features the Authentic Pro ‘S’, the Old Skool ’92 Pro ‘S’ and the Sk8-Low ‘S’. Each of the shoes feature premium leathers, pigskin linings and AVE and Dill’s Scorpio logo on the footbed. Check the pictures below!
Authentic Pro ‘S’
All faux snakeskin everything! I love how bold the print is but also the way the silver, black and white colours keep it quite subtle.
Old Skool ’92 Pro ‘S’
I think these might be the closest I’m ever going to get to the Leopard Sk8-His (check Yani’s pair here), but i’m not mad at it! The leather on these looks so luxe and the furry faux leopard print contrasts against it so nicely.
Sk8-Low Pro ‘S’
Last but certainly not least, these are all about the detail. A modest black and white shoe on the outside, these beasts feature both snakeskin and leopard print on the inside lining!
