Growing up I spent many days working in restaurants, either as a server or a cook. I loved every minute of it, especially cooking delicious food in the kitchen! I worked hard, and so did my feet! I was a little lost when it came to footwear and never really found a great product. These days I am not working in a restaurant, although some days I feel like I am as I run around cooking meal after meal and serving my kids their breakfast, lunch and dinner… and don't forget snacks, so I depend on good footwear to get my feet through the day!
After years of searching I was ecstatic when I came across MOZO, an exceptional company, creating innovative footwear for culinary professionals.
Their goal is to produce exceptional footwear and who better to get advice from then from world-renowned chefs Marc Samuelsson, Aaron Sanchez and Cat Cora. I am a huge FoodNetwork fan, and am constantly watching their shows. Remember my NRA post back in June when I even got to meet a couple of them in person? Knowing that they collaborated with these great chefs got me very excited to try a pair out for myself.
I received a pair of Sport Canvas flats (Walnut) from MOZO's Farmers Market Collection. This specific line is inspired by Chef Cat Cora and is perfect for going from "work to play". As a busy mom, I thought what better footwear to have than a canvas flat inspired by Chef Cat Cora! If anyone knows what hard work is, you can count on her!
Before getting this pair to review, I had visited a Chiropractor. He looked at my feet and my choice of footwear and cringed! Perhaps I needed new shoes? I love shoes and l love cute shoes, so when he told me I needed shoes that would support my feet, I knew I had found the right ones.
Their Famers Market Collection: Sport Canvas flats are incredibly light weight. It actually took me some time to get used to them because my feet felt so light! It has been a little rainy here in Chicago lately, so having the waxed canvas uppers for water resistance has been great! There is also a midsole cushioning and a molded footbed with quilted padded lining for extra comfort and makes a great fit for my feet! I also took some great advice too, and threw them in my washing machine, then let them air dry just to get them to soften up a bit. Worked great!
My feet have been so spoiled lately, it's hard to imagine life without my MOZO Sport Canvas flats!
