A few months ago, I started a post about clogs but faced some serious hesitation as to whether or not to actually run it. I really should have taken my own advice, but instead I allowed the fear that all of you would think I had lost my mind for endorsing such a silly style take over and I held off. Then Mr. Karl Lagerfeld had to go and show clogs during the Chanel Spring 2010 presentation and now this silly little style is gaining crazy momentum and is being hailed as the hottest spring trend.
As much as I worship Karl, I didn’t need his seal of approval because I honestly love clogs and could not be happier that they are making a comeback (even though I’d wear them even if they maintained their passe status!). Clogs are a great substitute for flip-flops in the fall and winter and can serve as your slip it on and wear-then-with-anything-go-tos. Rock your clogs with bare feet when it’s warm and with tights or funky socks when it’s cold.
If you share my sentiments and can’t wait to clomp around in a pair of clogs, then read on for the styles I’m currently crushing on!
Vera Wang Lavender Label Daisey Motorcycle Pumps, $325 (also comes in brown). There are no words to describe how badly I am pining for these.
Gucci Janis Clogs, $745. An absolutely to-die-for alternative to your standard platforms.
Matisse Footwear Savannah Shearling Clogs, $135. With shearling lining and rubber soles, these clogs are the ideal way to stay comfy and cute in the winter.
Diane von Furstenberg Suede Empire Wedges, $295 (also comes in black). So fantastically bohemian with a modern sensibility.
Frye Belted Harness Mule, $168. A great way to add a biker-edge to your daily look.
UGG Abbie Clog, $134. Go back to the basics with this classic style.
