Chuck Hughes Has His Own Vans Sneakers -- And You Can Get Them

Related To:

Chuck Hughes is the mayor of Awesome Chef Styleville. He continually takes his passion for cooking and cool design and creates beautiful things. For proof, you can look at his limbs, adorned with artwork of bacon, lemon meringue pie, lobster and arugula, to name an armful. Now he's taking his authority of food fashion and adding some function to the form. Chuck's teaming up with Vans and a Montreal-based boutique called Off The Hook to create two pairs of all-black, kitchen-ready sneakers they call the "Black Crab."

According to the release, both are "constructed from water-repellant materials with minimal stitching on the uppers and with waxed cotton laces to withstand the at-times tumultuous kitchen environment." In any case, they're definitely more fashionable than bright orange Crocs.

The $134 shoes will be soled (shoe joke) at the Off The Hook store in Montreal or on their site starting March 22 if you can Oxford them (shoe joke). Even if you can't literally get a hold of Chuck Hughes' shoes, you can still figuratively take a walk in them by tuning in to Chuck's Eat the Street every Thursday at 10pm ET.
