In The News: Vans, Dynafit, Altra
Vans and celebrity chef Chris Cosentino have teamed up on a new collab featuring tough, kitchen-ready versions of the brand’s Classic Slip-On and Old Skool silhouettes. The new Vans x Chris Cosentino shoes feature liquid and dirt repellant Vansguard uppers, UltraCush footbeds and the “Made for the Makers” slip-resistant, vulcanized lugged outsoles. The shoes also subtly reference the seafood trade in True White canvas, with Chili Pepper suede highlights and a Black midsole.
