These KFC x Crocs Clogs Will Be Releasing Soon

Earlier this year, we reported on a KFC x Crocs collab which debuted during New York Fashion week and had fans of both up to their ears in excitement for a potential general release. Well friends, I don’t know how much more you can contain that excitement, but just know that it’ll be for only a little while longer.

That’s because the crispy Crocs Classic Clogs have a release date next week on July 28th on for $59.99. This highly anticipated pair also comes with two removable, chicken-scented, drumstick-shaped Jibbitz charms.

What’s better is that this release is hinged to a good cause, with $3 of every purchase going to the KFC Foundation’s REACH Educational Grant Program, which helps employees at participating KFC locations to further their education through college scholarships.

You know what they say when it comes to fashion, a good statement piece is crucial in one’s wardrobe. Pretty sure a pair of Crocs Classic Clogs looking like a delicious bucket of KFC chicken fulfills that notion to the max.


Starbucks And Nike Collaborate To Create A Beautiful Pair Of Sneakers

Nike and Starbucks, two of the biggest brands in the world (ranking in at 17 and 67, respectively), have teamed up in order to bring us the next pair of shoes we don’t need but dammit we want.

This isn’t the first time two giants from the food and fashion industry have collaborated, and certainly won’t be the last.

The Nike SB Dunk Low Premium Starbucks edition shoes have a brown suede-looking canvas with subtle, streaky swirls of khaki, made to mimic both the steam coming off of a fresh cup of coffee and the wrinkly, rich brown tone of a handful of coffee beans. The Nike Swoosh is painted in classic white with the standard Starbucks green outline, along with the heel, tongue and base of the shoes.

The shoes are available now for a limited time in select Nike retailers. These shoes, as do many of the shoes in the Nike SB Premium line, retail at $100. Personally, I think the shoes look dope as hell, and I would buy them for the clean-looking color scheme alone. Of course, I would try to get away with calling them the Andes Mints Edition or something, because “Starbucks shoes” is just too much.

Hamburger Crocs Are GQ-Worthy Food Swag


It takes a strong individual to be willing to wear Crocs in public. For the shameless food lover who couldn’t give a rat’s derriere what people think, Japan just launched a collection of hamburger-styled rubber sandals that really do manage to be more garish than the original.

With a light brown rubber upper and two wavy layers of red “ketchup,”  green “lettuce,” and dark brown “beef” inner and midsoles, the Crocband Hamburger Clogs will be available starting tomorrow from the Crocs Japan online store. There are even special mini burger, french fry, and soda Jibbitz to help you really up the something-something ante.


$49 buys yours. Fries and soda, sadly extra.

Mario Batali Orders 200 Pairs of Soon-to-be Discontinued Orange Crocs

Orange Crocs

Celebrity chef Mario Batali is known for his love of Crocs. So is it really that much of a stretch when he decided to stock up once he heard they discontinued the orange color? It might be if he ordered 200. Which he did.

Upon finding that the brand was going to stop selling the bright orange shoes he loves, the chef decided he needed to order as many as he could before they retired forever. While the traditional bright orange was confirmed as discontinued, Bistro Mario Batali Edition Crocs (which come in orange) are still available for purchase. So for those looking to rep some Batali-esque swag, there you go.

Ice Cream Heels Are Fashionable & Unfortunately Inedible


For the record, this Foodbeast writer is opposed to stereotypes. Even though she is a she, she has, like, two pairs of regularly worn shoes, and is a fan of neither ice cream, nor heels.

But these shoes are super cute, and I will fight any girl who disagrees. Not really, but mostly because I don’t expect there to be many disagreements.

Crafted by designer Karl Lagerfield for Melissa footwear, the heels are cute, flirty, ice-cream-accented, and plastic. So don’t eat them. Just admire.


Be on the lookout for purchasing options, too. Meanwhile, check out the shoe here.

Finally, Sriracha You Can Wear


For those Sriracha addicts who secretly fantasize about skinny dipping in a pool of the delectable hot sauce, here’s the next best thing: Sriracha Stilettos. While the boys are out of luck on this one (although, if you can rock it, I salute your brave soul), there’s nothing sexier than a woman in heels . . . of hot sauce. At least, that’s what I hear.

Hand-painted by the talented folks at Hourglass Footwear, you can have the signature rooster sauce emblazoned on just about any shoe style your prefer. So theoretically, the boys can start easy with Sriracha “flats.” Just something to think about.

Cheeseburger Vans

Food on your shoes? Not exactly. This pair of Vans Slip-Ons collaboration shoes links up one of the most popular street shoe companies with one of the world’s most popular foods — the cheeseburger. The shoe’s artwork captures the burger, bun, pickles and ketchup, all in a tall order. These Vans collabos have been on a roll lately, it was just a few days ago we were introduced to those Rainbow Sprinkles Vans. Nice little lunch+dessert combo, don’t you think? ($50 @ HotTopic)



Rainbow Sprinkle Sneakers

With these fun and colorful sneakers, you’ll feel like you’re wearing cupcakes on your feet.  The pink canvas is printed with a pattern of rainbow sprinkles.  Hot Topic seems to be the only place that carries these in adult sizes.  Even the official Vans online shop offers them for kids only. ($45.00 for adults @ Hot Topic & $32.00 for kids @ Vans)
