Vans Syndicate x Eric Dressen Spring 2009 Half Cab “S” Pack

27 January 2009, 19.00 | Posted in Skateboarding, Sneakers | No comments »


Eric Dressen expresses himself through his skateboard loudly and fast, but always in control. When not skating, he’s quiet and would rather not be at the center of attention. Since the late 70’s, Eric has been rolling on his board all the while following the code of conduct set by fellow skaters from Santa Monica and Venice. A kid when the Z-Boys were in their prime, their antics truly inspired and shaped his explosive skating talent. Eric was featured in Skateboarder magazine at age ten, turned pro at the age of twelve and years later became the back-to-back World Street Champion in 1987 and 1988. He can skate any type of terrain with confidence; pools, pipes, streets, ditches, parks, ramps.

For Spring 2009 Vans Syndicate worked with Eric Dressen on a pack. It pulls a direct influence from the classic fedora – a symbol of pride and honor – in a way that was not too obvious. The rich felt overlays, ribbon quarter panel, gold leaf custom lettering, and gold satin linings makes the subtle statement in perfect detail.

The Eric Dressen Half Cab “S” is available in black, brown and gray and will be released at premium retailers beginning of March.
