The "Black Crab" collection from Montreal retailer Off The Hook, celebrity chef Chuck Hughes, and Vans is set to release this Saturday, March 22. The collection features an all-black Vans SK8-Hi Reissue Zip LX and an Authentic LX—two popular models from the Vans Vault collection.

Now, you might be wondering why, of all people, a chef would collaborate with a skate company to create a shoe. Well, First We Feast got a chance to speak with Hughes to learn more about the collection and find out how these Vans play a role in the kitchen. That's right—it's not just your typical all-black sneaker. Find out more and read Hughes' feature on First We Feast.
