Crocodile Shoes is a British 7-part television series made by the BBC and screened on BBC One in 1994.

The series was written by and starred Jimmy Nail as a factory worker who becomes a country and western singer. The show's eponymous theme tune "Crocodile Shoes" became a chart hit for Nail, as did the album of the same name.

A sequel, Crocodile Shoes II, followed in 1996 and the theme tune "Country Boy" was a hit for Nail too.

Paddy McAloon of Prefab Sprout supplied five original songs to the two series, all of them recorded by Jimmy Nail.

The series is currently being re-screened on UK channel, Drama, as of February 2016.
