He seems like such a good dad & it’s obvious his sons love him very much.

Has anyone ever seen Mario in any shoes other than those orange crocs? 🙂 He should be their spokesperson.

I didnt know Mario had kids! They’re lucky to have a dad who’s a great chef!

Actually, as of May 2007, Mario is an official Crocs spokesperson, having endorsed their Bistro shoe in their Work Shoes line. They even created a special Mario Batali version of the Bistro shoe- which he’s wearing in these photos- in his signaure orange with his raised signature on the strap instead of the Crocs logo. He’s also doing ongoing appearances, testimonials and recipes posted to

The Bistro shoe can be found here:

Here’s the press release announcing the partnership:
