Chefs Chris Cosentino, Marcus Samuelsson, Aaron Sanchez to Launch Footwear Line

Do You Buy Products That Are Designed by a Chef?

Today the news broke that chefs Marcus Samuelsson, Aaron Sanchez, and Chris Cosentino are adding shoe designer to their résumés. The trio have teamed up with Mozo shoes, a brand that makes slip-resistant shoes, to launch a special footwear collection, called Sharkz. Each shoe will represent the personality and background of the chefs, and they'll retail for $60-$70. While chefs designing products is nothing new — it seems as if every celebrity chef has a personal line of pots, pans, or knifes — I'm wondering who purchases these products. Do you buy cookware or clothes that are designed by chefs?

No. For the most part, they're expensive and ugly. Giada's Target stuff is adorable, but some of the other stuff I've seen has been bright orange and oddball colors and shapes.

Not at all. I specifically don't because they are almost always more money than other perfectly good items.

I needed wooden spoons and couldn't find any that I loved. Bear in mind, I live in a smaller town. I went to Target and Giada's line was new so I checked out her set of 2 wooden spoons. Excellent! Pleasant surprise. I recommend them.

I have some great little nested measuring/prep bowls designed by Mario Batali. I use them all the time.
