You know, the traditionally wooden Dutch shoes, now updated with variations of leather or cork, clogs are hitting the scene hard for spring, as evidenced during the Chanel Spring/Summer fashion show!
So I am on the fence, although this fancy design right here is calling me, but for the most part, I am on the fence.Â I tried once. I have a pair of clogs from Cole Haan, that I would wear with my slacks, fashioned completely against the way we see it for springâ€¦
Did you know this about clogs?
- Factory workers across Europe wore wooden clogs because the wood was readily available
- During the Industrial Revolution in Europe, rebellious factory workers chucked their clogs into the machinery to stop production during labor strikes
- The curvature of the interior base of the clog provides support for feet and legs
- Nurses, doctors and medical assistants, have embraced the clog as their shoe of choice
So, I ask you again, Would you don the clog?
