In yet another return to his DFW roots, superstar musician Post Malone is giving away pairs of his much-anticipated new Crocs, but you’ll have to head to a Chicken Express in Southlake to score the free shoes.
The giveaway is going down all day Wednesday, December 4 at the Chicken Express restaurant on Highway 114 in Southlake, but Post Malone won’t be in attendance, according to Fox 4 News. Apparently “hundreds of pairs” of the shoes are up for grabs, but expect for the crowds to be thick — earlier this year, when Post Malone released his first Crocs collaboration, people lined up for hours to get their hands on a pair.
In 2018, Post Malone visited the Southlake Chicken Express location where he worked for about two years in high school for a documentary filmed in support of his wildly popular album Beerbongs & Bentleys. Calling it his “first and last job” before pursuing a career in music, he was apparently only working there to save up enough money to buy a pair of Versace shoes. “He’s the only guy I used to make wear a hat,” Post Malone’s manager at the restaurant said in the documentary. “He had long stringy hair and I thought ‘oh my God, this guy isn’t ready for the fast food business.’”
This is Malone’s second major merch play in DFW in recent months. Earlier this year, the rapper (singer? sing-rapper?) teamed up with Bud Light to release cans of the beer emblazoned with his face, and those sold out almost instantly.
The shoe giveaway kicked off at 10:30 this morning, and if this photo is any indication, the lines are already seriously long and the shoes will likely be gone in a hurry.
