The McDonald’s-inspired Hamburglar, Birdie and Grimace shoes Crocs just released are the creepiest things ever

These shoes all have eyes and they stare back at you.

It’s not hard to make an ugly pair of Crocs. The shoes are just generally hideous pieces of footwear.

They’re basically just wearable thumbs for your feet. Did anything about that last sentence sound aesthetically pleasing? Your answer should be no. If it is yes, please let me know immediately and send me your location so I can inform the authorities of your whereabouts. Thanks.

Anyway, I digress. The point of this article isn’t to tell you that Crocs are ugly. You know that already.

What I’m here to inform you is that McDonald’s and Crocs have collaborated to make some of the most heinous pieces of footwear I’ve ever seen.

The brands released four pairs of Crocs — three clogs inspired by McDonald’s, Hamburglar and Birdie as well as another pair of fuzzy slides inspired by Grimace.

Here’s a look.

Yikes, right? I don’t know what’s worse — the fact that these all exist or the fact that they also have eyes. It makes them even creepier. Grimace, in particular, is just staring into the depths of your soul and telling you to go buy a Big Mac right now.

Grimace was already creepy as is. I don’t need his eyes staring right back at me from my feet. That’s weird.

Listen, man. If you’re into these, more power to you. But you’ll never catch me in a pair.

NBA and college players are rocking the Sabrina 1s, the new sneaker from the WNBA star

The hot new kicks worn by basketball players this season are Sabrina Ionescu’s signature sneakers.

Every now and then, a new basketball sneaker comes along that turns into be the trendy pick of the season for NBA and college players to rock as they’re swishing 3-pointers and throwing down dunks.

In the past, that sneaker is often a variation of a Jordan Brand shoe, or a signature kick from an NBA player.

This season is a little bit different. A whole lot of players are rocking the Sabrina 1s, Nike’s signature sneaker for WNBA star Sabrina Ionescu.

Nike announced that the New York Liberty guard would get her own signature shoe back in March, making her the third current WNBA player to get her own sneaker. And the kicks seem to be a hit among all hoopers, from women’s and men’s college basketball into the NBA.

The most recent NBA All-Star to sport the kicks in a game was Jrue Holiday:

Here’s who else is rocking the Sabrina 1s:

16 best celebrity costumes for Halloween 2023, including Paris Hilton as Britney Spears

Not to be dramatic, but some of these are truly iconic.

If there’s something strange in your neighborhood, Who you gonna call?

Break out the spooky music and the best costumes money can buy because Halloween is upon us. That means plenty of great costumes from kids, athletes in the NFL and NBA and anyone else who wants to get in on the fun.

Winnipeg Jets goaltender Connor Hellebuyck and his wife got the party started with a solid version of Travis Kelce and Taylor Swift, and Robert Griffin III (AKA”Robert Gryffindor”) showed up to the Wake Forest-Florida State game dressed in Harry Potter gear. Perfection.

Here’s a roundup of the best looks you need to see:

Kim Kardashian’s SKIMS underwear partnership with the WNBA is a sign business is booming in the league

Kim K. and the WNBA has a nice ring to it.

The WNBA is full of bosses on and off the court, and Kim Kardashian is familiar with their game.

The WNBA is experiencing a ton of growth. Fittingly, the 2023 season was the most-watched regular season since 2002. Viewership numbers were up 21% as the league set new records across WNBA digital platforms, social media, and sports betting.

The 2023 WNBA Finals also gave fans one of the best matchups they could hope for as the league MVP, DPOY, and the two best teams went toe-to-toe for a chance at WNBA history. It’s only fitting that a matchup like that was the most-watched Finals in two decades.

These phenomenal athletes are getting the recognition they deserve. Brands like Google, DICK’s Sporting Goods and PlayStation are partnering with the WNBA to support women and empower them as they show the world that women are ballers too.

The league has landed on the radar of another woman who knows something about breaking records.

Kim Kardashian and her underwear brand SKIMS are announcing a multiyear partnership that will make SKIMS the WNBA’s official underwear partner.

“The athletes of the WNBA are trendsetters and cultural influencers,” said Commissioner Cathy Engelbert. “We are excited to work with SKIMS, a brand that has quickly cemented its status as a cultural centerpiece, to elevate each other’s brands and celebrate female athletes and their impact in society.”

Kardashian echoed Englebert’s excitement, saying, “We look forward to working together in amplifying our joint values of women empowerment and individual confidence.”

Fans can expect to see the WNBA and SKIMS rollout promotions throughout the 2024 season and as the calendar approaches the 2024 AT&T WNBA All-Star Game in Phoenix, Arizona.

SKIMS is also expected to receive exposure that includes on-court virtual signage during national broadcasts and across the league’s digital platforms.
