GOLETA, Calif., June 17, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- MOZO® Shoes, creator of
innovative footwear for culinary professionals and a division of Deckers
Outdoor Corporation (NASDAQGS: DECK) reveals its second creative collaboration
with famed restaurateur, chef, and author Marcus Samuelsson. The new
style-forward line, the 125^th Street Collection, is now available nationwide
via select retailers and online at



"We are thrilled to team up with Marcus for the second time. He is not only a
force in the culinary industry, but also a fashion icon. The new 125^th Street
Collection offers professionals a shoe with so much street-style that they can
wear it in and out of the kitchen," says Jeff Bua, MOZO Brand President.

"I am obsessed with shoes and was excited ^ at the prospect of bringing
street-style into the kitchen. So often you see chefs working in shoes that
don't properly help them perform. The 125^th Street takes the cool factor of a
street shoe and merges it with the intelligence of MOZO, leading to traction,
support and long-lasting comfort that truly support the cook," said

The 125^th Street Collection  is named for the iconic street that Samuelsson's
award-winning restaurant, Red Rooster Harlem, calls home. The collection
includes three different mid-cut designs available in waxed canvas, black
patent leather, and a scuff resistant black synthetic upper. Each of the shoes
gives an insider's nod to the professional kitchen with a molded, diamond
plate toe-cap inspired by industrial steel grating. Additionally, one of the
Chef's shoes in the 125^th Street Collection features a waxed canvas design
that showcases the famous wallpaper that adorns Red Rooster Harlem's walls and
is a page from Samuelsson's grandmother's handwritten recipe book.
