I like clogs in a funny sort of way. I like that they’re clunky and odd. I like that they’re made of wood as it gives them a rustic charm. I’ve been admiring them from a distance for some time. I had bad experiences with clogs the first time they came around, they kept falling off my feet and I couldn’t understand how anyone could get around in them. They also went out of fashion in rather deliberate way. However, I’m starting to come around to the idea of buying a pair following a sweet tweet from @emmagleason, and after seeing her wear them so well.
Clogs + socks = a perfect match.
I’ve picked out a few of my favorites from the web, but I expect to follow this buying my own pair. I’m sure that admiring them for this long must count for something.
Let me re-touch on that earlier point, clogs went out of style in a rather deliberate way. They were very quickly ‘not.’ Until the Chanel Spring 2010 show, after which clogs seemed to make a loud re-entrance to ‘hot’ – but not for no reason. This version of the clog is very cute [hard to argue with after flicking through the aforementioned Chanel show image].
The question is, how long with they last? I want to know what you think of clogs… Is it worth the purchase, or do you think they’ll be out of style just as fast as they came in?
