On Tuesday night, a new bird came home to roost at KFC: clogs.
KFC and Crocs unveiled their shoe collaboration at New York Fashion Week when the artist Me Love Me a Lot wore a platform pair to the event.
“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.
This spring, fans will be able to purchase a classic clog version of the platform shoes that MLMA wore at Fashion Week on Crocs.com for $US60. Unfortunately, the platform bucket clogs that MLMA wore 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,” Terence Reilly, Crocs’ senior vice president and chief marketing officer, said in the press release.
Fans who want to be the first to get their hands on these finger-lickin’ shoes can sign up on Crocs’ website to be alerted when they become available in the spring.
