....after McDonald characters, like Grimace and the Hamburglar....


McDonald’s and Crocs release line of shoes inspired by Grimace and the Hamburglar

....Grimace may be a vaguely bear-like creature of unknown genus, but he’s certainly not hibernating this season.

On Nov. 13, McDonald’s and Crocs announced a collaboration that takes the nostalgic characters of McDonaldland and immortalizes them onto Crocs footwear with a full line of shoes, socks and Jibbitz charms.

The line, which the brands say will “elevate any look” become available beginning Nov. 14. The line is McDonald’s first-ever collaboration with Crocs, joining Taco Bell and KFC in the collection of fast-food-themed foam footwear to hit the market in recent years.

The brands matched Crocs’ Classic Clogs and Cozzzy Sandals (yes, that’s with three Zs) with McDonald’s characters Grimace, Birdie the Early Bird and the Hamburglar, as well as the chain’s color scheme, to create a limited-edition collection designed to give fast-food lovers a way to step into the literal shoes of their favorite mascots.

The shoe line is now live on the Crocs website, at Crocs retail locations and select wholesale partners, while supplies last.

The shoes — complete with Jibbitz charms — cost about $70 to $75 a pair, and the socks are going for $20 each. Here’s the full lineup:

Grimace x Crocs Cozzzy Sandal

This shoe is inspired by Grimace, the possible taste bud and this summer’s viral sensation. These sandals are lined in faux fur the brands say will “have you feeling like you’re walking a day in Grimace’s shoes.”

Featuring his magnetic visage on the straps, the Grimace Cozzzy Sandal comes with a Jibbitz charm to represent his Birthday Shake, which inspired memes for months and cemented his status as the internet’s bestie. It also can be paired with matching socks (which seem to be sold out as of publication).

Birdie x Crocs Classic Clog

Birdie the Early Bird’s Classic Clogs come in the character’s signature yellow and pink, with Jibbitz that represent her origins as the chain’s breakfast mascot.

In addition to her eyes, scarf and figure as Jibbitz on the shoes, her “favorite menu item,” a McDonald’s Egg McMuffin, also is included in Jibbitz form. The clogs can also be paired with Birdie-themed winged pink socks (which also seem to be sold out).

Hamburglar x Crocs Classic Clog

Everyone’s favorite beef patty larcenist is immortalized with a pair of Classic Crocs decorated in Hamburglar’s iconic black and white stripes. His Jibbitz charms include his hat, smile, tie and wouldn’t be complete without the object of his affection: a hamburger. A set of matching socks are also available to pair with the look (though they also look to be out of stock).

McDonald’s x Crocs Classic Clog

Folks who want to show their love for the brand as a whole can sport the McDonald’s x Crocs Classic Clog. The shoes come with Chicken McNuggets, World Famous Fries, Big Mac, drink and logo Jibbitz charms. You can also buy these five charms on their own for $20.

McDonald’s says that this marks its first global shoe partnership. So, in honor of the Crocs partnership, McDonald’s will donate a portion of the proceeds to Ronald McDonald House Charities.

I love this post mostly for the fact that I now know that we live in a world where even plastic sandals are now sold with the offer of no interest financing. big grin smiley

I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.

My sole complaint with Crocs is the imprinted size often being unrelated to the physical size.

Someone opined that it might be the result of bad counterfeiting.

I hadn't realized they were a target.

The Crocs that fit me that are correctly rated for size are few and far between.

For around the abode and to the sidewalk and back, I love 'em.

I'd not pay for the McDonald's version and wouldn't wear them for free.

I've bought some 'colorful' shoes on the cheap that people didn't like.

None of the colors bothered me.

The McCrocs are an absolute non-starter, even for free.

Anyone that feels different, party on.






I am that Masked Man.

All you can do, is all you can do.

There’s trouble — it's time to play the sound of my people.

Your boos mean nothing to me, I've seen what you cheer for.

Insisting on your rights without acknowledging your responsibilities isn’t freedom, it’s adolescence.

I've been to the edge of the map, and there be monsters.

We are a government of laws, not men.

Everybody counts or nobody counts.

When a good man is hurt,
all who would be called good
must suffer with him.

You and I have memories longer than the road that stretches out ahead.

There is no safety for honest men except
by believing all possible evil of evil men.

We don’t do focus groups. They just ensure that you don’t offend anyone, and produce bland inoffensive products. —Sir Jonathan Ive

An armed society is a polite society.
And hope is a lousy defense.

You make me pull, I'll put you down.

I *love* SIGs. It's Glocks I hate.

There is some darkness within me that draws me to the chaos of putting into the world a 6’2”, 350#, 65 year old Black man wearing size 17 Hamburglar Crocs.

Alas, they only run up to size 13. And also cost a stupid amount of money. big grin smiley
