With just a week to go before its official launch, Boston retailer CONCEPTS finally unveiled its collaboration with VANS Syndicate this morning. Even while these first images are enveloped in artificial smoke, the VANS Sk8-Hi silhouette is instantly recognizable. In premium black suede with beautiful paisley-like details laser-etched along the lateral paneling, CONCEPTS furthered the elaborate design to the interior with a satin lining in bright pink. As a final touch-up to the theme, the designers hid VANS' ubiquitous checkerboard pattern from plain sight and instead placed it underneath behind the translucent waffle outsole.
Though no details are available at the moment about the collaboration's curious "Combat Zone" name, this limited edition is set to be available this Saturday, March 30th, at CONCEPTS with possible availability elsewhere later on.
