For this release, Vans and Cosentino styled the Made for the Makers Old Skool in black and grenadine, adding touches to maximize comfort for chefs around the world. Vans UltraCush™ footbed provides comfort for the days they’re constantly on their feet, a Vansguard™ canvas that repels water, as well as reverse-waffle outsoles for added traction. The shoes feature a small “SF” on the side, paying tribute to Cockscomb’s San Francisco roots.
Cosentino has been praised for his dedication to his vision, which he has woven into all his projects. He is hailed as an educator, a philanthropist and a creator, aligning with Vans’ mission to cultivate creativity and self-expression.
