Sole of a Chef
Fashion victim (and chef) Mario Batali has partnered with Crocs to launch a new Bistro model featuring "a thicker metatarsal area to help protect the top of the foot, as well as a supportive arch and foot bed circulation nubs to ensure all-day comfort." They can be sterilized in clean water and bleach, or just toss them in the dishwasher like Mario does. The special edition clogs, due out in late Summer 2007, will retail for $39.99.
Crocs contain dibutil tin that is very toxic to aquatic organisms!
The German magazine Öko-test (5/2007) put them through some lab tests and found dibutyl tin in them.
Tin organic compunds have long been recognised for their negative impacts on health and enviroment. They are among other things detrimental to the immune and hormone systems of animals.

Even if you haven’t taken a cross-country fast food odyssey or eaten out with friends who pack their own gourmet salt, you can show your Frank Bruni spirit with an "I am Frank Bruni" t-shirt, designed by tastingmenu.com. If you’d rather not wear your statement like a foodie superhero, you can order it on a messenger bag instead.
