Recap: Alexis Ross Vans Syndicate Shoe Release


Ever been to a party inside of a laundromat? Well this last Friday night Vans Syndicate teamed up with renowned Los Angeles artist Alexis Ross to host a shoe release party inside of Silver Lake's Thrifty Wash. While we were looking for the location, we had no idea that this event was actually to be held inside of a laundromat, but to our surprise Thrifty Wash was the hot spot. The night marked the release of the "chinese laundry bag" inspired OG Authentic.

Not only was there free left ear piercing being done by Ross himself, but there was also a Street Fighter vs Xmen arcade style battle. The tournament started off with about 12 people eager to win the cash prize of $400.00.  After some intense match ups it was down to two dudes and one janky joystick. Little did everyone know that the winner, Paul Carrillo from the city of Norwalk, was a Street Fighter Veteran. L.A. Taco's Desilu captured the night, click the link below to check out the party and the super limited bucket hats and sweet new shoes.
