McDonald's, Crocs introduce 4-shoe collection

McDonald's x Crocs collection became available Tuesday

McDonald’s has launched a limited-edition collection with foam clog maker Crocs.

A quartet of McDonald’s-themed shoes are at the center of the collection that became available Tuesday, according to the Chicago-based fast-food chain. The companies also teamed up on themed socks and Jibbitz charms. 

Beyond this latest collaboration, some others that Crocs, widely known for its foam clogs, has done in the past include Taco Bell, Vera Bradley, 7-Eleven, Hocus Pocus and Peeps, according to its website.

The fast-food chain’s Hamburglar, Grimace and Birdie characters provided the basis for three of the shoes in the McDonald’s x Crocs collection. The purple Grimace-themed ones are faux fur-lined sandals while the other two are clogs.

McDonald’s also used Grimace for a popular limited-edition "Birthday Meal" that included a purple shake earlier this year.

On the second-quarter earnings call held in late July, Crocs CEO Andrew Rees identified collaborations as a driver for the brand in North America, saying, "We see collaborations continuing to drive very high interest in the Crocs brand and, in fact, growing interest in the Crocs brand." He also pointed to new products and "strong marketing support."
