KFC tweeted a video of the shoe being fried in the kitchen with the caption, “Introducing the official Kentucky Fried Chicken licensed proprietary footwear made in collaboration with @crocs. Do not eat. Coming Spring 2020.”
The shoes come in two unisex versions - the Kentucky Fried Chicken x Crocs Bucket Clog, a sky-high, platform style, and the Kentucky Fried Chicken x Crocs Classic Clog, which features a low-to-the-ground sole. Both options have the iconic red-striping that resembles KFC’s chicken bucket and are topped with a print of the Colonel’s famous fried chicken.

“I would want to punch someone wearing these. I wouldn’t, but I’d want to,” wrote a Twitter user. “These shoes should definitely be added to the “bucket” list,’ joked another. “This can’t be real. KFC is getting out of hand,” commented a third. “And here I thought that Crocs couldn’t come up with a design that was uglier than what they currently have,” wrote a fourth.
Here’s how others reacted:
According to a press release, the KFC Crocs will be priced at $59.99, and “fans” can sign up at Crocs.com to be notified when the limited edition fried footwear is available, which will be sometime this spring.
