VANS AND SHUT PRESENT: SYNDICATE/RODNEY SMITH: 48-HOUR SHOP TAKEOVER
Vans is honored to partner with Rodney Smith in announcing the Syndicate/Rodney Smith: 48-hour Shop Takeover this weekend in NYC. As co-founder of the influential and infamous Zoo York and Shut Skates crew, in the nineties Rodney Smith and his pioneering brands gave rise to the careers of many East Coast legends who would go on to follow a trail he blazed over a decade earlier. Steady grinding it out for 35 years now, he’s seen more than his fair share come and go, yet Rodney remains committed to the ideas and ethics of New York City street-skateboarding that, since day one, he helped define.
