A variation to the original design by Tony Alva, Carhartt WIP and VANS Syndicate took on the challenging task of adding on updates and improvements. The result is the new Carhartt WIP x VANS Syndicate Era Tab “S”, a quartet of VANS Eras with canvas heel panels, signature waffle outsoles, Carhartt logo leather tab on the vamp, and a striking zig-zag reinforcement on the forefoot. But the most notable change is the reflective saddle-shaped panel, a perfect alteration for night skating and one that caused many to call this the “3M Pack.” The Carhartt WIP x VANS Syndicate Era Tab “S” is slated to hit select Carhartt WIP retail locations and online store starting tomorrow. In the meantime, check the highly stylized night-time skate video by director Philippe Petit after the click below.
