R e s t a u r a n t D a i l y N e w s S u n d a y, M a y 1 9 , 2 0 1 3 4 4 CROCS@WORK'S BISTRO SHOE: WORK NEVER FELT SO GOOD Crocs™ has long been known for offer- ing comfort footwear. Utilizing the same proprietary closed cell resin Croslite™ technology that sets Crocs footwear apart from the rest, Crocs@work™ work shoes provide professionals in food service, restaurants, hospitality, hospitals and healthcare industries the ultimate in comfort footwear designed to meet workplace standards. Some of the features and benefits include slip- resistance, being built for a purpose, value priced and being lightweight to provide all day comfort. Crocs@work work shoes provide superior comfort to workers on their feet for long periods of time. The exclusive Croslite material conforms to the foot creating a custom fit and the added roominess allows the foot to bend and expand naturally to reduce fatigue. With a closed heel design and its Crocs Lock tread with special slip resistant benefits (a tread that provides industry standard slip-resistance), the Crocs@work Bistro (#10075) shoe is perfect for kitchen aficionados. Additional design elements include a thicker metatarsal area to help protect the top of the foot, as well as a sup- portive arch and foot bed circulation nubs to ensure all-day comfort. In addition, Crocs@work work shoes have the added benefit of being odor resistant and can be cleaned with soap and water. The Bistro is available in a signa- ture Mario Batali edition featuring a raised Mario Batali signature and the iconic Batali Otto flowers on the heel strap and come in classic orange and graphite colors. The Bistro is available in black, navy and white. Both Bistro styles retail for $44.99 and come in women's whole sizes 6 to 12 and men's whole sizes 4 to 15. To learn more about Crocs@work work shoes or to order a pair of Crocs work shoes, visit www.crocsworkshoes.com. The 16 styles in the Crocs@work work collection have undergone dura- bility and comfort testing to ensure that Crocs@work work shoes are designed not only to exceed your foot's expecta- tions—but professional industries' expectations as well.

DANSKO TO PARTNER WITH CHEFS BRIAN MALARKEY AND STEPHANIE IZARD AT NRA CONVENTION Dansko announced it will partner with celebrity chefs, Brian Malarkey and Stephanie Izard, at this year's NRA Show. Stop by the Dansko booth 6839 on Monday, May 20, to meet Brian and Stephanie. Both will be on hand to share their love of Dansko shoes and the importance of proper footwear in the kitchen, along with tips and techniques for all things cooking. Brian Malarkey, who includes his black patent Dansko Professionals as part of his signature style, was most recently a judge and mentor of the winning team on the new hit ABC show, "The Taste". In addition to coaching the winning team, Brian is executive chef and partner of Searsucker restaurant in the heart of San Diego's bustling Gaslamp District. Here, Brian showcases his talents and high energy in the restaurant's exhibition kitchen. In addition to Searsucker, Brian's ever-expanding food empire includes six restaurants and a catering and events company throughout the western United States. Brian's award- winning technique and high energy style have earned him the highest accolades among fellow chefs and foodies. In case you can't tell from the names of his restaurant, Brian has a flare for fashion, fabric, footwear and of course food. Stephanie Izard is well known nationally as being the first female winner of "Top Chef", a Food & Wine Best New Chef and for her award-win- ning Chicago restaurant, Girl & the Goat. Stephanie opened her second Chicago restaurant, a diner called Little Goat, across the street from Girl & the Goat in Chicago's West Loop area in December 2012. Little Goat encompasses a diner, artisan bread and coffee shop, bar, and classroom and private events area (called Little Goat Kitchen). Stephanie's cookbook, Girl in the Kitchen was published in 2011 and expands her talents to writing. Stephanie also has a newly launched product line called "The Flavor, By Stephanie Izard," consisting of sauces and rubs. She stays on her feet and keeps us on our toes, so stay tuned for more from this talented and well- heeled chef. Both Brian and Stephanie can attest to the fact that they spend a great deal of time on their feet, in the kitchen or on tour, and how having comfortable, sup- portive footwear is one of the secrets of their success. Dansko XP, now available for both men and women, looks the same as the Dansko Professional—the iconic shape and shoe that started a comfort rev- olution—but features a cushioned insole for a softer ride. In addition to the inter- nal cushioning, the outsole is certified slip resistant. For more information on Dansko, visit booth 6839 at the NRA Show. After the show, head to dansko.com or contact the company at press@dansko.com or 800- DANSKO-4 with premium shock absorbing PU insole. The full grain leather upper also features a padded collar and tongue for comfort while the soles are durable with traditional Goodyear welt construction. Similar to the Ranger, the Challenger work boot is composed of a full grain leather upper with the added Dickies (Cont'd. from p.4) protection of a waterproof membrane. This work boot was created with light- weight technology for ease of movement, but also maintains any workers safety with direct injected PU midsole with oil and slip resistant TPU outsole.
