Nobody asked for it, but they made it. The long-awaited shoe collaboration between KFC and Crocs will finally roll out to the public on July 28.
Chicken and clog come together in eye-gouging, toe-licking splendor with KFC’s new Crocs. Topped with chicken-scented, drumstick-shaped Jibbitz charms (not edible), the KFC Crocs will be sold on Croc’s website starting July 28 at 12:00 pm Eastern Time.
The bucket clogs, which originally premiered at New York Fashion Week in February, were supposed to come out in the spring. Sky-high platform versions were modelled by Korean artist MLMA (MeLoveMeAlot), but sadly for the vertically challenged, the platform version is for sale.

But since the original announcement, there’s been effective radio silence from all sides – until Thursday, when Eater reported that the Crocs were about to be in stock.
A KFC spokesperson confirmed to Business Insider that the price for the shoes will still be $US60, as announced in the original press release in February. For every pair sold, KFC will donate $US3 to the KFC Foundation’s REACH Educational Grant Program, which provides college scholarships to KFC employees at participating restaurants.
