Chefs cooking in restaurants are required to wear uniforms and specific kitchen shoes to prevent accidents. In light of the limited amount of choice of footwear for chefs, popular skate shoe brand Vans paired together with chefs Vinny Dotolo and Jon Shook to create a line of slip-on shoes that are designed specifically to be suitable for working in kitchens.

The collaborative line features six different shoe styles that are chef-tested for proper kitchen use. The footwear was designed together with the chefs to provide functionality in their workplace as well as style. Features to the shoes include water-resistant coating so that the footwear stays dry through spills, slip-resistant soles and added cushioning to provide chefs support while they spend hours upon hours standing on their feet.
