VANS SYNDICATE AND DEFCON: DIGITAL CAMO


DEFCON members stay under the radar and invest energies into the visual construction of their heartfelt passions. A multi-faceted approach to marketing, design, and photography focuses on shaping brand identities that respond to the fast-paced evolution of online marketing in the digital age and a glutted marketplace. DEFCON collaborators like to take their time, think before they speak, and choose authenticity over corruption.

On October 1st, DEFCON comes up for air to corroborate their long-standing partnership with the Vans Syndicate group. Both models were inspired by Navel Special Warfare AOR1 and AOR2 camo, and are a testimony to the close bond between DEFCON and members of the Special Forces community.

AOR1 and AOR2 camo were developed by Seal Team 6/Devgru during the early years of the war on terror. The material contains a classified infrared reflective weaving component making it “night vision goggles stealthy”. AOR1 is the dessert option and AOR2 the woodland counterpart. The camo was initially issued to Navel Special Warefare tier one unit, Devgru, and was first revealed to the mainstream public by the Bin Laden raid blockbuster, Zero Dark Thirty. Today it is fielded by all Seal Teams.

The Vans Syndicate DEFCON models are a non-classified / non-ITAR, visually similar versions of the AOR1 and AOR2 camo. The Sk8-Hi Notchback “S” is reinforced in the front, protected by a camel colored fire-proof Warrior Suede®, has a gusseted tongue and printed digital desert camo on a ripstop quarter panel, and intricate detail on tongue, inside collar, and side stripe. Second, the Old Skool “S” has been made privy to similar treatment with black Warrior Suede® and printed digital woodland camo on ballistic mesh, quarter panel, and tongue. Both shoes feature moisture wicking Dri-Lex™ linings.
