Kentucky Fried Chicken, purveyor of (what else?) fried chicken, has partnered with Crocs, the shoe brand, to introduce Kentucky Fried Chicken x Crocs Clogs.
KFC and Crocs partnered to create two versions of the limited-edition Crocs. The first, Kentucky Fried Chicken x Crocs Bucket Clog, is a sky-high, platform, avant-garde version that global artist Me Love Me a Lot (MLMA) debuted while attending shows during New York’s Fashion Week. The second, Kentucky Fried Chicken x Crocs Classic Clog (a classic clog version), will be available for consumer purchase in spring 2020.
“Combining the unmistakable look of our world-famous fried chicken and signature KFC bucket, with the unparalleled comfort and style of Crocs, these shoes are what fried chicken footwear dreams are made of,” said Andrea Zahumensky, KFC’s U.S. chief marketing officer.
Featuring a realistic Kentucky Fried Chicken pattern and a nod to the iconic red-striped bucket, the clog also comes with two removable, chicken-scented Jibbitz charms that look like a fried chicken drumstick. This tasty collaboration of American icons is truly an Original Recipe for success, the company said.
“As Crocs continues to create new, unexpected brand collaborations, we’re thrilled with this ‘bucket list’ partnership with Kentucky Fried Chicken that will bring fans an unbelievably fun and fashionable take on our classic clog,” said Terence Reilly, Crocs’ senior vice president and CMO. “We’re honored to feature this fashion-forward style between two iconic American brands at one of New York’s biggest weeks in fashion that promises to surprise and delight consumers around the globe.”
Available in unisex sizes, the Kentucky Fried Chicken x Crocs Classic Clog will retail for $59.99 USD.
