Watch out, these shoes from KFC could make you blow your diet.
What do Crocs and Kentucky Fried Chicken have in common? We’re not sure, but you will soon be able to buy a pair of Crocs that resemble a bucket of chicken. KFC and Crocs introduced two special pairs of the plastic clogs at Fashion Week in New York City. The chicken-scented Crocs will be available for sale to the general public later this spring.
Two pairs of the Crocs were debuted on the runways of New York Fashion Week. The Kentucky Fried Chicken X Crocs Bucket Clog, a super high platform shoe, was worn by artist Me Love Me a Lot, MLMA and won’t be seen off the runway. The bottom of the Classic Clog version features the classic red and white stripes of the KFC bucket, and the upper portion of the shoe is covered in images of the KFC crispy coating. Each shoe is adorned with a removable chicken leg that smells exactly like the famous KFC chicken.

Crocs was excited to bring these two global brands together to the audience at one of the world’s biggest weeks in fashion.
"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 Chief Marketing Officer.
This isn’t the first time KFC has branched out into the retail world. Last year, the company launched a Colonel Sanders pool float, chicken-scented fireplace log, and a Colonel Sanders Halloween costume. The Kentucky Fried Chicken® X Crocs Clogs will be available at crocs.com for $59.99. Diehard fans can sign up and get an email when the tasty-smelling shoes go sale.
