  2. Well, I think I'd take sneaker blogs' word rather than an anonymous' uneducated comment. Just my opinion.

  4. Yo b,I'm jes sayin.u run a sneaker blog to educate people,that means to do that,u gotta give em facts! Do your research before postin shit up so you DON'T get SONNED by your readers. Pop art hosois r diff from syndicates coz the got artwork on the inner sock liner and on the insole.thus the name "pop art" While syndicates r just more expensive and come in a dust bag and a nicer box.

  5. I still stand my ground on what I put there. I know that sometimes I name models wrong, and I CLEARLY stated it in my about page that I don't have that "godly" sneaker intelligence that you're bragging about, but this time I really think I got it right. Unless you can give me proof otherwise. Thanks!

  7. Alright, so you're telling me, that all these websites are wrong?

    http://www.kicksonfire.com/2010/11/16/vans-syndicate-bash-vulc-hosoi-blue-black/

    http://www.eukicks.com/vans-syndicate-bash-vulc-s-x-christian-hosoi-royal-blue/

    http://www.nicekicks.com/2010/11/vans-syndicate-bash-vulc-hosoi-black-blue/

    Then if you're right, and all these websites aren't, I'll gladly edit this post and change it.

  8. way you can distinguish btwn "off the wall" and "syndicate" models are the heel tabs. "s" models have just "vans" on the back with a diff looking letter "s" for syndicate.heres a pic from the vans syndicate site-http://www.vanssyndicate.com/014/hosoi.php if you notice on the GR bash hosoi vulcss,they say "off the wall" on the heel tab. and most of those sneaker review sites,if you notice the date of the blogs you posted, were 6 months before the actual release of the shoe. so by then, theyre pretty much unofficial news. take a look at the 2nd to last link you sent me. "nicekicks" http://devcom.nicekicks.com/tag/vans-syndicate/page/2/...theres 2 blog entries on consecutive dates, aug 5th, and aug 6th. on the 5th they were correct, dubbing the black and red pairs as the syndicates. on the 6th they call the "pop arts" "wtaps"? which they are most definitely not.and the box, syndicate boxes pull out, and theyre all black. the ones pictured is the regular flimsy pop art box. out of all those sites that you listed earlier,hypebeast is the most reliable .they listed the blue ones as just vulc bash. and Primitive for sure is legit since PRod owns it. he has a vans,and a syndicate account. so yea, those sites were wrong, as you can see from the actual vans syndicate link i sent you. but im sure as the release date drew near that year, im sure rumors and speculations were replaced with official news. now.if you still need more proof,show me how to send you actual pics of my pairs?

  9. and dude, it dont matter to me if you change or edit your post. cause i like to research on my own when i want anything. but what if some kid who reads your blog, walks into a store that doesnt have a syndicate account,(because not all stores do, not even the regular vans stores) lets say the supreme store in new york, where customer service is NOT a priority, and asks for blue hosoi syndicates. that kid will most likely be in for a bad experience.

  10. Oops my bad wrong comparison,supreme carries all tier levels of vans.

  11. Those blue and black hosoi pop arts were even sold at vans phils this year.and they for sure don't have a syndicate or vault account. G1 has a vault account but that's about it. Bunker used to carry syndicates but I'm not sure if he had an account or he just resold them.

  12. If you're that confident, then maybe I'm wrong. And of course I'll change it if it's wrong, what's the sense of the model names if they ain't right. Thanks!

  14. Yeah maybe not all are right, but more than anything else, they have more information. Yeah, kicksonfire is alright. Btw, sorry for the unnecessary first comment, was a little bit ticked off at that time by other hate comments in other posts. Thanks for checking the blog out!
