The well-shod chef
Any chef will tell you that among the most important equipment in the kitchen is their shoes. Foot comfort is essential to culinary creativity. That’s why celebrity Latin chef, Aarón Sánchez, perhaps as famous for his tattoos as he is for his flan, has been collaborating with the makers of MOZO® brand shoes, a division of Deckers Outdoor Corporation.
The new Skulls series of premium-quality slip-ons is an extension of Sánchez’ original Red Skull line. New colors, orange and neon green, have been added and the distinctive embroidered Mexican sugar skull is stitched on the top of the shoe. “We are excited to provide more options for the professional cook who is looking for both style and functionality in the high-energy, chaotic environment of the kitchen,” says Jeff Bua, President of MOZO.
The Skull Series is now available nationwide through select retailers; the shoes cost between $69.95 and $109.95. See all styles at mozoshoes.com. El Paso-born Sánchez is a frequent guest on Food Network programs and is co-host of Heat Seekers with Roger Mooking.
