Clog-watch


I hate to say it but this clog thing is slowly growing on me. These were shown at the KG and Carvela press day and the main thing is they feel really light – must be hollow inside. I think the glitter ones (above) are the most interesting – innovative and stylish. The beige patent ones (below) would look sweet on someone like Alexa with black ankle socks and an APC-like little denim dress.

Not so crazy about the combination of red + patent + clog. ‘Cheap and nasty’ is the phrase that comes to mind…
The red suede ones (below) are my favourite – I’m picturing them with loose denim shorts and a half-tucked grey marl sweatshirt with elbow-length sleeves. I think buckles and straps are going to be important on clogs this time around – bare heels on a traditional clog are too reminiscent of (whisper it) mules…Ugh.

Thoughts?

    I read this post and it's snowing outside! When I see these photos on the screen all I can see in my mind is purple toes and frostbite.

    But come summer, love, love, love.

    COME TO THE CLOG SIDE!!!!

    *beckoning with spindly finger* yes, come little one, come join us on the clog side.

    I'm glad they're back en vogue, I used to love stomping around in the last pair I had around 1999. I don't like those glitter ones much but like the others.

    I am really not a fan of those clogs, sorry, but I liked clogs on the runway. I'm just a sucker for Chanel, even Chanel clogs, I guess.

  5. That's Not My Age says:

    Loving the glittery one – the patent version's not bad either. Could be worn with knee socks to avoid the frostbite?

  6. Miss Cavendish says:

    Agreed that these (except the shiny red) are attractive iterations of clogs (a word I more commomly associate with drains than style). I'll be looking to see how more like these (ahem) clog the market.

  7. Caroline, No. says:

    I love them! And they are surprisingly comfortable.

  8. Shay says:

    I'm into it. Love my mohops, I've had them for a couple years now.

  9. Sabine says:

    As someone whose (nearly) only flat shoes are Dr Scholl's wooden heels the clog is very close to my heart. So, yeah, why not. Especially the first ones for Christmas.

  10. Blue Floppy Hat says:

    I agree straps have to be substantial, and I like those glittery ones- the shape somehow reminds me a little of Comme des Garcons's summer shoe shapes from a couple of years ago..

  11. ELLE says:

    I see what they're going for but there's something about these styles that are off. Maybe its the low heel. Hopefully we'll see some good Chanel copies on the high street in Spring.

  12. All Women Stalker says:

    They will never grow on me. They look painful to walk in. And not pretty at all.

    Mmhh…the first ones are indeed the most interesting… Although I'm still not on the clog side…

    Don't think I've ever been fond of anything glittery but the top pair are really great.

  15. Make Do Style says:

    Loving them – I've already admitted to being a clog harlot and now you've fed it further!

    I LOVE the brown ones at the bottom. If you're interested in good red (non-hooker like) clogs try

    Still not my favourite trend, but a smattering of glitter helps.
    I have to say the red suede ones are my favourite too. The colour and texture just 'works'.
