Luke Combs Crocs Are a Thing Now and You Can Get Them at CMA Fest

A big part of Luke Combs' appeal, beyond his fun and relatable singles, is that unshakable sense that he doesn't take himself too seriously. That and he still dresses like half the guys on the typical college campus. Cross that welcomed sense of levity with his "football Saturdays in the South" dress code and you've got a CMA Fest exclusive: the Luke Combs X Crocs Classic Clog.

Combs' lumber-colored footwear comes with additional Jibbitz charms ( a.k.a. hillbilly bling), inspired by the stickers on his guitar. These doodads commemorate everything from Combs' beard to his favorite liquors and his home state NHL franchise the Carolina Hurricanes.

"I've worn Crocs for a long time, and no one loves them as much as me, so getting the chance to design my own pair of the Classic Clog is cool as hell," Combs says in a press release. "I had so much fun creating these and hope fans have just as much fun wearing them."

On the surface, it's harmless fun and a chance for CMA Fest visitors to take home a rare collectible. Beyond that, a compelling argument can be made that clogging, like its bluegrass-friendly cousin buck dancing, comes from the same folk traditions at the very roots of country music. Through that foggy lens, these shoes are as authentic and traditional as manufactured scarcity gets.

If you're in Nashville this week and want to purchase a pair, you have to pick up a ticket on Thursday (June 6) at the Crocs booth, on Broadway between 2nd Ave. S and 3rd Ave. S. These first-come, first-served tickets are necessary to purchase a pair of Crocs at the designated date and time. No word yet on the price tag, although it'll surely be cheaper to buy a pair in-person than scour eBay in the coming weeks.

The Crocs will be available in women's sizes 6-12 and men's sizes 4-13.
