Known as much for his creativity on four wheels and a wooden deck as he is with two wheels and American iron, veteran skateboarder and motorcycle builder Max Schaaf is no stranger to the Vans Syndicate family. With his first Syndicate project dating back in 2009, Schaaf’s influential persona is defined once again in the Mountain Edition 4Q “S”, a premium, heavy-duty mid-top, available this Saturday, October 17.
Schaaf’s rugged aesthetic is emphasized in this reimagined silhouette, boasting military-grade leathers, enhanced design details inspired specifically by skateboarding, bikes and Schaaf’s hometown of Oakland, CA. The timeless style comes in an all-black, full grain leather construction.
2015 marks the 10th anniversary of the Vans Syndicate collection, Vans Pro Skate’s celebration of the diverse heritage of ideas, attitudes and influences that make up skateboarding’s unique culture. Vans pays tribute to this milestone by returning to several original Syndicate collaborators to represent a decade of iconoclastic style and heritage.
