McDonald’s Drops a Buzzworthy Collab With Crocs



McDonald’s has seen recent success with reigniting love for its mascots and introducing Grimace, Hamburglar and friends to a new generation. Now the fast-food chain is building on that fan love by teaming up with Crocs on a shoe collection based on the iconic characters.

McDonald’s first global shoe collaboration features four colorful pairs decorated with Crocs’ Jibbitz charms that retail for $70-$75. Each shoe also has a complementary pair of socks for $20.

The adorable styles include purple Grimace sandals lined with faux fur and decorated with charms featuring the mascot and a milkshake, a nod to the viral success of the Grimace Shake this summer. They’re paired with fuzzy purple socks showing Grimace’s smiling face.

The limited-edition collection launches Nov. 14 through Crocs.com, Crocs stores and select wholesale partners.
