Ice-T Is Getting His Own Vans Syndicate Capsule Collection Soon

Submitted by on August 30, 2013 – 9:10 amNo Comment

Ice-T has been in the game for a looooooong time now. In fact, he’s been in the game for so long now that he remembers a time when sneaker companies—and, hell, any companies for that matter—did not mess with rappers. So back when he was coming up in the game, he didn’t get the opportunity to work with Nike or Reebok or adidas or any of the other sneaker companies out there. But since he’s still putting in work—both as a musician and as an actor—a sneaker company has finally come along and decided to pay homage to Ice-T by blessing him with his own capsule collection that includes sneakers, a hat, and clothing. That company? Vans.

That’s right. This fall, Vans is going to release an Ice-T x Vans Syndicate Capsule Collection to honor Ice-T. The capsule collection will include a Vans Sk-8 Hi “S” and a Vans Chukka Decon “S” as well an “O.G.” hat and a couple of T-shirts that were designed specifically for Ice-T’s collection. The sneakers themselves feature a few pretty slick features, like gold-stamped lyrics on the linings and Ice-T’s name embroidered near the heel. Vans is using the collection to give props to a guy who helped pioneer the gangsta rap movement. It’ll be a good way for rap fans to show their love for Ice-T, too. And (hopefully!) it will force some of the younger rap fans out there to go back and listen to some of Ice-T’s old music.

You can check out more information on the Ice-T x Vans Syndicate Capsule Collection below. What do you think about what Vans has done here? Do you think it’s about time that someone gave Ice-T his own sneaker—or do you think that Vans is reaching with this collaboration? Either way, the Ice-T x Vans Syndicate Capsule Collection will be available on September 15 through various Vans retailers.
