Vans x Andy Kessler


We stopped by KCDC Skateshop over the weekend to pick up our very own pair of Andy Kessler x Vans Syndicate Old Schools. Andy was a dear friend of ours and KCDC was his shop, so we can be sure he is smiling down as friends line-up to support the collaboration.


The Old Skool and SK8-Hi Syndicates have black leather uppers, perforated accents, electric blue laces and also boast Outlast technologies to help regulate temperature. They were actually designed with Andy’s input before his passing, so they are extra special to us. The heel tag has been updated with a New York City Skateboarding logo and the insole and box feature a tribute to “AK”.
