Oh Mario Batali, when will you understand that fashion DOES matter, even just a little bit??
Though, we guess he IS synonymous with his orange Crocs — and we get how important branding is! Still, yuck!
For Mario, it's all about comfort (the FOOD is what's important)! The orange is just for flair… but that flair might not last, and not because of Mario's doing!
Orange Crocs are being DISCONTINUED! So, he did what any sane chef would do: he bought 200 pairs of them, just in case!
Here's what he said as to how many pairs he owns:
Probably 30. I just ordered 200 more because they’re about to take orange out of the field. They made a special run for me before they retired the color. They’re gonna stop the Mario Batali orange! It’s preposterous! But they’re doing pretty well without me. Nothing lasts forever, baby.
At least that's a great outlook!
Plus this opens up a huge opportunity for someone to design him a NEW shoe that isn't so offensive… you know, after he's done with his 200 pairs in 700 years!
Still, we love him! We can't help it!
