Widely known for his creativity on a wooden plank with four wheels as he is on two wheels riding American iron, veteran skateboarder and motorcycle builder Max Schaaf has once again teamed up with Vans Syndicate. The pair first teamed up back in 2009 and now to celebrate Syndicates 10th anniversary he’s back with a new creation, the Vans Syndicate X Max Schaaf Mountain Edition 4 Q “S”, a premium, heavy duty, mid-top, marking the fourth release in the anniversary series. Schaaf’s rugged style is is emphasized in this re-imagined silhouette, boasting military grade leathers, design details specifically inspired by bikes, skateboarding and Schaaf’s home town of Oakland, CA. The timeless design comes in an all black , full grain leather construction.
The 4 Q “S” also features a raised collar for increased ankle protection, has interior warrior suede and heat resistant linings. Custom debossed logo detail on the upper and the tongue, a really cool Vans Syndicate logo in the Velcro strap!
