    They look good, would be really cool of they used a dark sole of some sort.

    Do Vans have much of an arch support or heel support? I thought I remembered them basically being flat–but haven’t owned any since 8th grade (like 30 years ago). :o)

      These are completely retooled from the original vans. Grip, lining, sole, gusset, etc. Actually pretty comfortable.

    Pretty cool… There’s only one Syndicate authorized store in the area. Can’t get them online.

    If anyone is still looking for these, I tracked them down at a skateboarding shop in Tempe that ships inside the US for free. They had some of the larger sizes in stock.
