Have you been waiting to get your hands on a pair of KFC Crocs — a fanciful footwear collab between Kentucky Fried Chicken and, yes, molded clog-maker Crocs — since you heard about them in February during New York Fashion Week? Well, friends, sorry to report that, unless you are among the very lucky few who managed to snatch up a coveted pair in the first half-hour they became available yesterday, you missed them.

The bold and boldly aromatic clogs — which feature a fried-chicken-printed upper, a red-and-white-striped base made to resemble an iconic KFC bucket and the top of Colonel Sanders’ head wryly peeping out from the back of one shoe’s heel — went on sale at 12 noon ET on Tuesday. By 12:31 pm, KFC announced the shoes had sold out.

“Bad news is the KFC x @Crocs are officially sold out,” the chicken chain wrote on Twitter. “Good news is you can still buy a real bucket of chicken at KFC. Don’t wear them.”

I mean, ha-ha-ha, but people weren’t laughing. Especially the people who got in line for the shoes early — figuring they at least had a pretty good shot at landing a pair of the cobranded Crocs, which came with two removable “Jibbitz” charms made to look and smell like a fried chicken drumstick — and still didn’t get them. No, they weren’t laughing at all.

“Was in the cue line right away and never had a chance to get them - very disappointed,” tweeted one empty-handed customer.

“Sold Out before the page even loaded at release.... I call BS,” wrote another.

“Im gonna stay salty about this. You lost my trust when you took away potato wedges. I was going to forgive you because i love crocs and the design was the best but man.... my disappointment is immeasurable and my WEEK is ruined,” wailed a third.

One person put it succinctly: “Thanks for crushing my dreams …”

Sigh. But people… people, don’t forget. In such situations, there is always eBay.

Quite a few pairs in a variety of sizes are already available on the auction site, waiting for whoever is willing to plunk down up to $500 for a pair (new in box!). No, half a grand definitely isn’t chicken feed. But high fried fashion clearly comes at a price.
