Water resistant Vans Syndicate Sk8-Hi and Old Skool “S” 026 Eric Dressen 026 “S” Pack now available in-store at Black Sheep and online in our web store.
No pro in the history of skateboarding ever made a successful transition from the ‘70s skinny board era through the ‘80s vert era to eventually become a pioneer in the modern era of street skateboarding. None, zero, zilch, nada. None, that is, except for Eric Dressen, OG Venice and Santa Cruz legend. Eric has witnessed firsthand the rise and fall of skateboarding three times over, and has come out a better man for it. These days, Eric still skates for Santa Cruz and has expanded his artistic output to include tattooing full time at Will Rise in Los Angeles. Eric truly is one-of-a-kind, and the embodiment of Vans Syndicate culture.
The Vans Syndicate Dressen Pack includes an Old Skool in Army/Water Resistant and Sk8-Hi in Black/Water Resistant both in water repellent, durable canvas upper with tonal accents and military style labeling details.

Vans x Yardsale Collection
Vans x Yardsale Collection now available at blacksheepskateshop.com with free shipping while supply lasts.
Started in 2013, London’s Yardsale combines the culture of its suburban South East London home with the luxury and leisure of 1980’s Los Angeles. Paying homage to the rawness of the classic Dogtown era, Yardsale combines influences from their own stomping grounds to imagine their first-ever Vans designs through the lens of skating the grey suburban streets of London.
The Vans Yardsale collection highlights the Authentic Pro and Epoch Pro, two timeless skate silhouettes, complemented by a matching track jacket apparel staple. The Authentic Pro is crafted with premium suede tan uppers, while the Epoch Pro is dipped in a smooth burgundy fuzzy suede; each footwear style is unified by an embroidered Yardsale logo on the tongue, and a black and white stripe on the sidewall foxing. Engineered with Vans Pro Skate technology, each Pro style delivers upon Vans’ classic style and progression, offering durability and support through the integration of UltraCush™ HD footbeds for heavy impact, Duracap-reinforced uppers for ultimate durability, and Vans’ original waffle outsoles for maximum boardfeel.
