GOLETA, Calif., July 17, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- MOZO® Shoes, the foremost leader of innovative footwear for culinary professionals and enthusiasts and a division of Deckers Outdoor Corporation (NYSE: DECK) unveils its new 2014 styles today. Since its inception in 2008, MOZO has been deeply immersed in the food industry; a glance at many a chef's feet finds them proudly wearing MOZO footwear. This 2014, MOZO found its greatest inspiration yet. Looking to the personalities and ambiances found at vineyards, kitchens, farmer's markets, and top catering companies, MOZO discovered the most exciting styles, textures and colors from which to create, all while maintaining its commitment to shoes that are lightweight, durable, comfortable, and easy to clean. With a 2014 line of shoes that feature pig skinned and diamond plated uppers, lining inspired by butcher aprons, and color palettes that draw from the rich hues found within ripe ingredients, MOZO continues to revolutionize the classic kitchen shoe, giving it such style that it not only redefines the dress code for the culinary industry, but also gives food enthusiasts a shoe that speaks to their passion in and outside of the kitchen. MOZO introduces three brand new styles, The Tour Collection, The Harvest Collection and The Gallant, this summer. For a total of eight different styles, these three newcomers join the existing lines of The Natural Collection, The Forza, Sharkz, Wedges, and The Red Skulls. All collections will be available nationwide beginning this July and August 2014 online at www.mozoshoes.com and through select retailers.
THE TOUR COLLECTION
MEN'S AND WOMEN'S

The collection is available in both women's and men's silhouettes; the women's line under The Maven and the men's line under The Maverick. Both The Maven and The Maverick can be worn as a slip-on or a lace-up. The modern style of the shoe is ideal for holding up to the nonstop movement that cooking demands as well as for adding maximum style, comfort and support to everyday errands. Waxed canvas uppers and superior traction combine to make a shoe that withstands the wear and tear of any kitchen while gel insoles provide comfy cushioning. Three-hole ventilation on the shoe's arches allows for breathability and heel counters add support and stability.
