For his latest Vans collaboration, chef Cosentino reworked the Makers Old Skool UltraCush and Slip-On UltraCush for a food-focused lifestyle. Both shoes feature durable liquid and dirt repellant Vansguard® uppers, UltraCush footbeds and the “Made for the Makers” slip-resistant, vulcanized lugged outsoles, to offer comfort for days without sacrificing personal style. The slip and stain resistant Vans classics subtly reference the seafood trade in True White canvas, with Chili Pepper suede highlights and a Black midsole. The addition of chef Cosentino’s “Inspected for wholesome goodness by C.C.” logo embossed into the heel completes the design, while a matching t-shirt with a cartoon drawn by Jeremy Fish of the chef’s likeness (which is also printed on each shoe’s sockliner) rounds out the release.
“Having a partnership with Vans is a childhood dream come true, creating this special collaboration allows me to have the comfort & style with all the benefits of a tough shoe for everyday.” - Chris Cosentino
