June 17, 2013 – Goleta, CA – MOZO® Shoes, creator of innovative footwear for culinary professionals and a division of Deckers Outdoor Corporation (NASDAQGS: DECK) reveals an exciting creative collaboration with acclaimed chef and lifestyle entrepreneur Cat Cora. With two lines, the Caviar Collection and the Farmers Market Collection, the MOZO-Coracollaboration speaks to culinary influencers of all types – from the mother who is passionate about experimenting in the kitchen to the industry professional working long hours on her feet. Beginning June 15, 2013, the shoes will be available nationwide through select retailers and online at www.Zappos.com.
“We are thrilled to introduce this partnership with Cat; beyond being our first footwear collaboration with a female chef, MOZO is honored to partner with such an inspiring trailblazer in the industry. With the Caviar and Farmers Market Collections we are giving women a stylish and thoughtfully designed option for both everyday wear and professional footwear,” says Jeff Bua, MOZO Brand President.
As the first female Iron Chef, a successful restaurateur, author of three cookbooks, an avid philanthropist, and the first female inducted into the American Academy of Chefs® Culinary Hall of Fame, Cora indeed offers a seasoned perspective on what female culinary professionals and influencers look for in a shoe.
“My collection is about supporting women as they move throughout their day. Whether at work, around the home, or running errands, women need a shoe that not only performs in a culinary atmosphere but also complements their lifestyle and personal flair,” says Cora.
The Caviar Collection includes the Divine, a refined clog in black and brown leather, and the Fresco, a beautiful wedge in black and brown leather with teal accents. The Farmers Market Collection is a casual and colorful line including two flats: the Sport and the Fab. Both silhouettes are available in black leather and in assorted waxed canvas colors such as black, walnut, pink, yellow, and green.
