Celebrity chefs are the new triple-threats. Check this out: our sister site Eater National is reporting that chefs Marcus Samuelsson (right), Chris Cosentino, and Aaron Sanchez are launching a line of shoes. "The line will be called Sharkz, will have removable footbeds and 'superior ventilation,' and will 'weigh in at a mere eight ounces in women's (10 ounces in men's).' They'll retail at '$59.95 for a plain white or black pair and $69.95 for the Signature Chef-designed versions.'" [Eater National]
