Fast-food giant McDonald’s has joined forces with iconic Australian brand UGG to create a limited edition pair of slippers inspired by chicken nuggets, aptly named “Nuggies.” These unique booties are designed to resemble chicken nuggets, right down to their texture, and they come packaged in a giant sauce packet instead of the typical shoebox.
The collaboration brings together two beloved Aussie favorites: McDonald’s chicken nuggets and UGG’s cozy and stylish footwear. Liz Whitbread, McDonald’s senior brand manager, expressed excitement about the partnership, stating, “We’re excited to bring Nuggies to life — combining two iconic Aussie favorites that are perfect for a cozy night in.”
Here’s the catch: Only 50 pairs of Nuggies will be given away for a limited time of six hours exclusively through the McDonald’s website. To have a chance at scoring a pair of these unique nugget-inspired slippers, you’ll need to act quickly.
The giveaway event is set to take place on September 5th, from 8 p.m. (EST) to 2 a.m. (EST) in Australian stores. During this time frame, eager customers can visit the McDonald’s website and follow the provided instructions to enter the giveaway. However, with only 50 pairs up for grabs, competition is expected to be fierce.
This collaboration isn’t the first time fast-food brands have ventured into the world of fashion. In 2020, KFC partnered with Crocs to create a unique shoe, the “Bucket Clog,” which made waves during New York Fashion Week. These limited-edition clogs featured KFC’s iconic bucket stripes, fried chicken imagery, and even chicken-scented shoe charms. The unusual combination of fast food and fashion garnered significant attention, with international artists and fashion enthusiasts embracing the quirky footwear.
As the Nuggies giveaway approaches, fans of both McDonald’s and UGG will be eagerly awaiting their chance to secure a pair of these one-of-a-kind chicken nugget-inspired slippers. With only 50 pairs available, lucky recipients will not only enjoy comfort and style but also become proud owners of a unique piece of fast-food fashion history.
