As you well know, most magazines are busy plotting their next moves in the digital realm. It is in these times that, in a move of highly questionable judgment, the VANS Syndicate ‘zine has chosen to align our efforts in the opposite direction and focus on analog publishing with the inaugural release of THESE DAYS, VANS Syndicate’s biannual newsprint periodical. Like VANS Syndicate itself, THESE DAYS is an exploration into the lifestyles and personalities that inspire us and contribute to make our shared culture so rad. We hope these stories will inspire you too.
