KENTUCKY FRIED CHICKEN UNVEILS KFC-INSPIRED SHOES
On Tuesday, during New York Fashion Week, Kentucky Fried Chicken unveiled its latest ‘finger-lickin’ collaboration (this time with Crocs, Inc) – KFC-inspired clogs.
“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,” Andrea Zahumensky, the Chief Marketing Officer of KFC US, said in a press release.
The clogs feature KFC bucket stripes, images of fried chicken, and chicken-scented Jibbitz drumstick charms on top. The charms, despite smelling like chicken, are not edible. Thank goodness!
The shoes will be available for purchase this spring and will be sold on crocs.com for $59.99. The platform bucket clogs (still from the collaboration) which artist, Me Love Me A Lot (MLMA) wore to the fashion week will not be available to the general public.
“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,” Says Terence Reilly, Crocs’ Senior Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer.
Recall that in 2016, KFC collaborated with spice company, McCormick to produce a line of edible nail polish.
Now, the question is, would you wear KFC x Crocs’ clogs?
