Chuck Hughes X Off The Hook X Vans (Black Crab Pack)

Date: March 11 2014

By: Sneaker Freaker


For so long, the feet flyness of discerning chefs has suffered while they ply their trade, with even the most leathered-up ball boots not appropriate for the slippery floors of the kitchen. So chefs have been forced to wear garish black rubber contraptions under their checkered pants, and some have even resorted to Crocs. Gasp. Montreal restaurant mogul Chuck Hughes believed there was a better way and his friends at Off The Hook were all ears. They let him sub-in on designing duties for a colab with Vans, and Hughes put something together for his hot plate homies to be proud of. The result is the 'Black Crab' pack, blacked-out renditions of the Sk8-Hi Reissue Zip LX and Authentic LX, with a few choice adjustments for pro cooks. The uppers are water repellant with minimal stitching to stop the soak-through, waxed cotton laces wick away moisture too and non-slip waffle outsoles make sure you don't get caught slippin'. The Black Crab Pack drops March 22nd, 2014 at the Vans x OTH store in Montreal and online.
