The real icing on the cake — or should we say, gravy on the mashed potatoes — is that each shoe is topped with a removable Jibbitz charm that looks like a fried chicken drumstick — and smells like one too.

The shoes have a spring 2020 release date and will cost $59.99. 

‘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,’ Andrea Zahumensky, KFC U.S. CMO, said in a press release.

And there’s more: To promote the collaboration, the Crocs also designed a Bucket Clog version of the shoe, which has the same design and chicken-shaped charms but also comes with a 4.5-inch platform. 

The Bucket Clog platform made their New York Fashion Week debut this week on the feet of artist Me Love Me a Lot (MLMA), who wore them out to Christian Cowan’s show on Feb 11.

The heels of the footwear also feature the Kentucky Fried Chicken name and the upper half of Colonel Sanders’ head. 

‘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,’ Terence Reilly, Crocs SVP and CMO, said in the press release. 

‘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.’
