New work shoes collection from Crocs

May 19, 2008 - United States Of America

Crocs Inc introduces two new sleek styles, the Ginger and the Saffron, designed specifically for women in the restaurant, food service, healthcare, and hospitality industries. Retailers can view the new styles, along with five other Crocs Work Shoes models, the Bistro, Velocity, High Velocity, Specialist and Specialist Vent, by visiting the Crocs booth, no. 6051, at the National Restaurant Association Show at Chicago’s McCormick Place May 17-20, 2008.

The Ginger is the first shoe in the Crocs Work Shoes collection to feature a heel. The 2-inch wedge style heel is designed for stability and comfort in the workplace. The Saffron, a tasteful take on the classic Mary Jane, features an adjustable strap for a secure fit and a roomy toe box for comfort.

Both styles include signature Crocs design elements such as Crocs Lock tread for superior slip resistance on oil, water and a wide variety of slippery surfaces, a Croslite material footbed which conforms to the foot creating a custom fit, and quality ergonomic design minimizing the load on feet, legs, and back.

Offered in classic black and white, the Ginger will be available in women’s sizes 4-10 and the Saffron in women’s sizes 4-12. Both styles will be available at select retail locations in mid-August or at crocsworkshoes.com.

“The Crocs Work collection has been very well received by professionals in the hospitality, healthcare and food service industries,” said Ken Chaplin, Vice President of Global Licensed Products. “We are confident the introduction of the Ginger and Saffron’s sleek styles will introduce more consumers to our Work collection and ensure the continued growth of Crocs within these industries.”

In addition to debuting new products, Crocs Inc will host world-class chef, Mario Batali on Saturday, May 17th from 9:30-11:30am in booth no. 6051. Batali, who introduced his signature orange Batali edition Bistro shoe at the 2007 National Restaurant Association Show will be in attendance to spread awareness of the benefits of the Crocs Work Shoes collection for all restaurant and food service industry professionals.
