Jose Garces, Philly's favorite Iron Chef and culinary icon was tapped to design a pair of kicks, and he went with the Guapos Tacos-esque covered in bottlecaps look. While you might find it odd that a chef designs sneaks, Garces is one of this year's ambassadors for the Custom Culture art contest, which raises money for underprivileged art students. This year the winning school will get $50,000.
In addition to Garces, some of the other famous folks involved in the program include talk show host Conan O'Brien and homewrecking vampire Kristen Stewart. Since the taco truck has been taken off the road, at least we know where all of those bottlecaps went.
