McDonald's and Crocs Cook Up a Novelty Footwear Collection Featuring Iconic Mascots
McDonald's, better known for Big Macs and McNuggets, is stepping into the fashion arena with a quirky new footwear collection. In a bold move, the fast-food giant has teamed up with Crocs to introduce a range of custom-designed clogs that pay homage to some of McDonald's most beloved characters.
A Menu of Footwear:
The collaboration menu offers a selection of three classic Crocs clogs and a Crocs sandal, all inspired by the iconic McDonald's mascots: Grimace, Hamburglar, and Birdie. Not to forget, the designs incorporate McDonald's signature red and yellow hues for that unmistakable branded look.
Accessorize with McDonald's Flair:
Adding to the fun, the collection includes a variety of McDonald's-themed Jibbitz charms. These charms, perfect for personalizing the clogs, feature motifs like french fries, the Big Mac, and the recognizable Golden Arches logo.
Launch Details and Pricing:
Set to hit the shelves on November 14, the clogs are priced between $70 and $75, while the matching socks are tagged at $20 a pair. These items will be available at Crocs retail outlets and selected wholesalers. McDonald's suggests that eager fans keep an eye on both McDonald’s and Crocs' social media for the exact midday release time in the Central Time zone.
Fashion Forward Fast Food:
This partnership marks McDonald's second foray into fashion in recent months, following a previous collaboration with British skate brand PALACE for limited-edition merchandise. Crocs, on its part, continues a successful streak of collectible collaborations, including a Shrek-inspired clog and a Lightning McQueen design from Pixar's "Cars" that delighted fans.
As McDonald's ventures into novelty footwear with Crocs, they're offering more than just a pair of shoes; it's a playful fashion statement that combines comfort with the whimsical charm of fast food culture. With this latest collaboration, both brands are banking on the crossover appeal of food and fashion to capture the imagination (and feet) of consumers worldwide.
