Vans cooks up a new footwear collaboration with renowned chefs Jon Shook and Vinny Dotolo. Co-founders of the Animal restaurant 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.

Stay posted for release information, and while you’re waiting, read about why the Vans Authentic is the best shoe ever.
