When it comes to New York Fashion Week, fried chicken and crocs aren’t the first things that come to mind.
But seemingly when you combine the two they are considered worthy of a place at the world’s most prestigious event in fashion.
KFC and Crocs have teamed up to launch their new ‘Bucket Clogs’ for the occasion and the results are quite something.
The clogs feature signature KFC bucket stripes printed with fried chicken imagery and bizarrely chicken-scented shoe charms.
Debuted during New York Fashion Week
The quirky new shoes were worn by global artist Me Love Me, during New York Fashion Week, who teamed her sky-high platforms with a sequined jumpsuit.
Terence Reilly, Cross Senior Vice President said: “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.
“We’re honoured 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.”
The shoes come in two unisex versions – the Kentucky Fried Chicken x Crocs Bucket Clog, a platform-style, and the Kentucky Fried Chicken x Crocs Classic Clog, which features a low-to-the-ground sole.
The limited-edition Crocs – created alongside ad agency Weiden and Kennedy – are a level up from the Balenciaga Crocs that debuted in 2017 and flew off the shelves (despite costing over £600)
At $59.99 (£46.23) the Bucket Clogs cost a fraction of the price.
