McDonald’s and Crocs fans are about to elevate their look courtesy of McDonald’s x Crocs first-ever collab in New Zealand. The brand mashup is inspired by both Crocs Stars and Macca’s loyalists and will drop with a full line of shoes and Jibbitz charms beginning 8th November in more than 30 countries around the world, including New Zealand.
From a Classic Clog with a McDonald’s spin to a throwback, limited-edition collection inspired by iconic McDonald’s characters – Grimace, Birdie and Hamburglar – the new shoes are designed to give consumers a way to live out their unapologetically bold fandom every day.
The Crocs are being sold in New Zealand exclusively through Platypus and an in-restaurant pop-up store.
The “Croc thru” will be in residence at McDonald’s Britomart from 9 am Wednesday 8th November, selling the shoes for just three days and allowing you to get fries with that. Across Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, Crocs and Macca’s fanatics can pick up a pair from the limited stock between 9.00 am and 7 p.m.
The full McDonald’s x Crocs Collection includes a line of shoes with Jibbitz charms available for between $149.99 – $159.99 a pair, including:
- Grimace x Crocs Cozzzy Sandal: Inspired by everyone’s purple bestie, these sandals lined in faux fur will have you feeling like you’re walking a day in Grimace’s shoes. The Grimace Cozzzy Sandal features his loveable expression on the straps, and comes with his favourite treat – a shake in the form of a Jibbitz charm.
- Birdie x Crocs Classic Clog: Early birds like Birdie will be the first to get these Classic Clogs in her signature yellow and pink, with her favourite menu item – a McDonald’s Egg McMuffin – as a Jibbitz charm.
- Hamburglar x Crocs Classic Clog: Feel as stealthy as the Hamburglar himself with these Classic Clogs in the Hamburglar’s famous black and white stripes and Jibbitz charms featuring his go-to order (a hamburger, of course).
- McDonald’s x Crocs Classic Clog: For those who want to sport Crocs in a classic McDonald’s style, the McDonald’s x Crocs Classic Clog is for you. The best part? With new Chicken McNuggets, World Famous Fries and Big Mac Jibbitz charms, you can wear your go-to order everywhere you go.
“We’re constantly blown away by the way our fans show off their love for McDonald’s, and as it turns out, Crocs’ fanbase is just as passionate,” said Luke Rive, Director of Marketing at McDonald’s New Zealand.
“We’re excited to team up with Crocs – another brand that’s deeply embedded in culture – on our first-ever global shoe collab that absolutely fuels the shared brand love. Like McDonald’s beloved characters, Crocs are a part of many of our consumers’ earliest and often most memorable moments. Together, we’re bringing that nostalgia to new generations with experiences around the world that are as bold and audacious as our fans!”
