Skate wear and work attire have a lot in common because the people who put on these lifestyle-specific clothes and shoes need reliable garments that support their rugged, everyday tasks. That's why the Tab 'S' Syndicate Era skate shoes made by brand collaborators Carhartt WIP and Vans are such a rad-looking, durable-tough product for workers and skaters alike.
Carharrtt has been a brand trusted by workmen and women for over a century and its Work in Progress (WIP) collection sees this all-American clothing company smartly branching off and making urban street wear.
By collaborating with a legendary skate shoe company like Vans, the Syndicate Era Tab 'S' shoes are able to skillfully combine the look of skater style with the proficiency of Carharrtt's workplace-specific attire.
