Words via Highsnobiety:
“Vans cooks up a new footwear collaboration with renowned chefs Jon Shook and Vinny Dotolo. Co-founders of Jon & Vinny’s, Animal, Son of A Gun, and a few other restaurants in Los Angeles, Shook and Dotolo designed the collab with a professional kitchen setting in mind, creating some special makeups of Vans’ Authentic, Slip-On, Old Skool and Sk8-Hi silhouettes.
The pack comes adorned with colors and themes from Shook and Dotolo’s various Los Angeles eateries, on top of specially coated water-and-dirt-resistant canvas uppers and enhanced footbeds – so each shoe is well-equipped for the rigors of kitchen work. Durable water-resistant coatings allow the shoes to repel liquid, while upgraded cushioning provides arch support during long periods of standing.”
