Crocs @ Work™ Awarded American Masters of Taste Gold Medal Seal

The Gold Medal Seal for "Superior Comfort Work Shoe" is Given by Chefs In America

NIWOT, Colo.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Crocs, Inc. (NAS: CROX) was selected as an American Masters of Taste "Superior Quality" Gold Medal Seal winner by Chefs In America for the Crocs @ Work™ line. The collection was a winner in the "Comfort Work Shoe" category for the following Crocs @ Work™ products: Bistro, Bistro Vent, Mario Batali Bistro, Mario Batali Bistro Vent, Mercy Work and Neria Work. The shoes were judged superior, and the judging was conducted "triple blind" in Northern California by a panel of Chef Masters of Taste.

"We commend the manufacturing expertise of Crocs, Inc. for producing a line of work shoes that offer comfort to chefs and others throughout the hospitality industry," commented members of the Masters of Taste judging panel.

The judging was part of the on-going U.S.A. Taste Championships founded in 1986 with the establishment of Chefs in America, whose professional board members gather weekly to conduct taste tests on a myriad of foodservice and retail products. The protocols of "triple blind" judging ensure accurate and fair judging results by requiring that the evaluators do not know who the manufacturer is, what the product variety or appellation is and what the other evaluators' scores and comments are.

The Crocs @ Work™ collection is built with the patented Croslite™ material to provide all-day, on-the-job comfort. In addition, several styles come with Crocs Lock™ technology that increases slip-resistance. These work shoes are also odor-resistant and easy to clean with soap and water for even the messiest of jobs.

"Crocs @ Work™ was created with comfort, style and functionality in mind to help provide today's service professionals with the features they need for on-the-job success," said Dale Bathum, Crocs' chief product officer. "Whether you're a chef, flight attendant, nurse, or hostess, Crocs @ Work™ products are comfortable and stylish enough to weather the toughest of shifts."
