Louisville-based chicken giant KFC is getting into the shoe game.
We’re not sure if KFC is serious about the endeavor or if they’re just winging it, but the popular fried chicken chain has partnered with Crocs with plans to roll out two different styles this spring.
We’re not terribly experienced at writing about fast-food players introducing a new line of chicken-inspired platform shoes, so we’ll just let the press release do the talking:
“The … 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 (Tuesday).”
And regarding the second style?
“The … Kentucky Fried Chicken X Crocs Classic Clog (a classic clog version), will be available for consumer purchase in spring 2020.”
Why can’t we stop thinking about the 1990s Sports Illustrated shoe phone?
“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,” KFC marketing exec Andrea Zahumensky said.
