As if there weren’t already too many awful licensed shoes out there, KFC and Crocs teamed up to make the worst shoes ever created.
Maybe I’m a little behind on the times, but I thought Crocs went out of style ten years ago. Regardless, the footwear company teamed up with KFC for their Bucket Clogs, a limited edition shoe featuring a fried chicken print.
Admittedly, the fried chicken print on the clogs don’t look that bad, and it might have looked good on a shirt — but it definitely doesn’t belong on footwear.
The last thing I want to be reminded of when I’m eating KFC is a pair of Crocs clogs. When I think of Crocs, I think of smelly, sweaty dads at Disney World.
The worst part is that these Crocs actually smell like KFC, so your clogs will smell like a mixture of feet and chicken. That’s disgusting.
“Each pair of co-branded footwear comes with two Jibbitz charms made to resemble and smell like fried chicken,” according to the announcement.
These KFC Crocs are unisex and come in two variations. You can either get the normal clogs-style or a sky-high, platform style pair.
“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 CMO Andrea Zahumensky said in a statement.
I’d argue the opposite — these shoes are what fried chicken footwear nightmares are made of. But Zahumensky was right that these shoes definitely have an unmistakable look.
It should go without saying that footwear and food should be completely separate, but if you have no shame and want to wear these out in public, you can own a pair of these KFC Crocs as soon as this spring for only $59.99.
