“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, the chief marketing officer for KFC U.S.
Known for its wide array of collaborations, Crocs first announced its partnership with KFC in February. Two KFC x Crocs styles were created. In addition to the mass-produced Classic Clog, KFC x Crocs introduced the Fried Chicken x Crocs Bucket Clog — an avant-garde 4.5-inch platform — in February. Global artist, Me Love Me a Lot (MLMA), debuted the KFC x Crocs Bucket Clog, which was never made available for wide release, at New York Fashion Week that month.
“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, SVP and chief marketing officer for Crocs, in a February 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.”
As well as partnering with KFC, Crocs has teamed up on footwear with celebrities such as Luke Combs, Post Malone and Ruby Rose. In addition, the brand has partnered with high-end labels including Balenciaga and Christopher Kane, as well as Barneys New York, Vera Bradley, Madewell to name a few.
