Original. Comfortable. Kentucky Fried. Kentucky Fried Chicken® X Crocs™ collaboration is taking fashion to new heights in spring 2020
Louisville, Kentucky, February 12, 2020- Kentucky Fried Chicken®, purveyor of world-famous fried chicken, has partnered with Crocs, the creators of the world's most delightfully comfortable shoes, to introduce this spring's hottest shoes – 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 biggest week in fashion on February 11. 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 U.S. CMO.
Featuring a realistic Kentucky Fried Chicken pattern and a nod to the iconic red-striped bucket, they're sure to fulfill all your finger-lickin' fashion dreams. And don't forget the sides – this 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.
"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 SVP 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. Fans can sign up on Crocs.com to be the first to receive a reminder when the limited-edition fried chicken footwear is available for sale this spring.
