Who Else Can Wear Mario Batali's Orange Crocs?

Mario Batali rocking his orange CrocsCelebrity Chef Mario Batali, well known from his own shows on Food Network as well as Iron Chef America, is also known for his signature orange Crocs that he wears in the kitchen, on red carpets, and even when at the White House. Who would think about wearing orange Crocs? Certainly not me...until recently.

I was at a meeting of the American Academy of Podiatric Practice Managment, of which I am a member of the Board of Trustees. Crocs is one of our champion corporate partners and was exhibiting at the meeting. Crocs has a specialized line known as CrocsRx as well as a line of Crocs Work shoes. While many are neutral colors, the orange Crocs were jumping out at me.

CrocsRx is a line of crocs that are specially made for a host of foot concerns. All of the CrocsRx line comes in higher quality materials and offers more support than the traditional retail Crocs. The Relief is a clog that offers a footbed that his heat moldable and is ideal for common foot problems such as bunions, hammertoes, heel pain, and arthritis. The Cloud line is ideal for diabetics and is even approved for coverage by Medicare under the therapeutic shoe bill. It comes in four widths and is constructed from a silver embedded material which offers protection from bacteria.

Crocs Work Shoes offers a washable clog that features a superior non-skid sole. It is approved to be used in the hospitality, food service, and healthcare environments. These shoes offer support, cushioning and protection for those working in the service industries. While you can rock the orange Crocs like Chef Batali, there are other colors to choose from as well.

I now have my pair of Mario Batali orange Crocs. While my wife has told me that I'm not permitted to wear them out of the house, I've already broken that rule. So far, the reviews are positive...I'm totally pulling them off!
