For their latest release SoCal footwear mainstay Vans teamed up with Montreal-based Off The Hook shop and chef Chuck Hughes to introduce the first-ever “kitchen-ready lifestyle shoe.” Part of the Black Crab pack, the Sk8-Hi Reissue Zip LX features an all-black water-repellant upper with minimal stitching, as well as waxed cotton laces. A cork foot bed set atop the iconic waffle outsole ensures a comfortable wearing experience. Additional features include a gusseted tongue and a waterproof zipper that runs along the back of the heel for easy accessibility.

The Sk8-Hi Reissue Zip LX “Black Crab” drops March 22 at the Vans x OTH store in Montreal and online.
