After first teasing the project with a not necessarily safe for work splash page, Concepts finally unveiled its new Vans Syndicate collaboration online today -- the "Combat Zone" Sk8-Hi. This unique collaboration pays tribute to the Combat Zone, a formerly notorious Boston neighborhood historically associated with adult entertainment, crime and violence. The "Combat Zone" Sk8-Hi features a laser-etched upper, pink liner and a graphic on the heel inspired by one of the neighborhood's old neon signs. 

The limited edition Concepts x Vans Syndicate Sk8-Hi "Combat Zone" will release at Concepts on Saturday, March 30.
