In probably the least expected turn of events for New York Fashion Week, Kentucky Fried Chicken released their collaboration with Crocs on something finger lickin’ good, but bizarre.

“As Crocs continues to create new, unexpected brand collaborations, we’re thrilled with this bucket list partnership with Kentucky Fried Chicken that’ll bring fans an unbelievably fun and fashionable take on our classic clog,” Terence Reilly, Crocs senior vice president and chief marketing officer, said in a press release published on Business Insider.

“We’re honoured to feature this fashion-forward style between two iconic American brands that promises to surprise and delight consumers around the globe.”

The footwear brand known for their comfortable shoes have turned the comfortable clog into a realistic recreation of the unmistakable iconic KFC bucket, featuring a red-and-white striped base with a golden textured top that looks like the skin of chicken. Co-branding can be seen on the rivet holding down the heel.

While one pair is just the classic clog, the other features an 11,5cm Croslite foam platform for the more daring and fashion forward consumer.

But what may be the most shocking aspect of the already unbelievable footwear item is the scent.

That’s right, not only can you wear shoes that look like KFC chicken, but they smell like ‘em too!

Each of the clogs will come with two removable drumstick-shaped Jibbitz charms that are scented like the fried food.

But with a price tag of $60 (R900), it’s going to set you back slightly more than a bucket of crispy chicken at KFC would.

The limited-edition shoe is set to be launched in Autumn this year – just in time to keep your feet warm and cosy as temperatures drop.
