Clogs for autumn and beyond

22

Here’s a nice high-heeled specimen from the clog masters at No. 6.

White clogs can be tricky, but these clear the bar because the white isn’t too bright. I also always appreciate studs instead of staples.

Beklina is a California brand that makes this ribbed number. It comes in quite a few colors, but this blue is so dreamy.

A good-looking, well-priced pair with a cushiony footbed.


These also come in black and brown, but something about the taupe is calling to me.

OK, this pair is kind of pricey, but the details—the cone heel, the big buckle—are just so good.

These have a luxe feel to them, and I’m betting they’re comfy.

Magnafied is a brand out of Denmark, and they’re my current favorite for clogs, because of the rubber sole insert that makes them worlds more walkable than their competition. They have a lot of cool colors and prints on offer, but of course I’m drawn to this yellow pair.

These are from Dansko, which means they’ll probably be pleasant to move about in.

    I have the blue Beklina pair and I must say they are extremely comfortable. Such a worthy purchase. I’ve walked for blocks and blocks in them with no problem – and I get complimented all the time when I wear them. Win win!

    I have the No6 ones in the first pic and they are my sexy going out shoes! They are hard to master to wear every day – it’s a shame because they make my legs look awesome and long and are very stylish. The leather top is taking a long while to break in.

    I’ve had several pairs of No.6, and like them a lot – but recently purchased two pairs from this Etsy shop & they have been even better. The cut of the leather at the top of the foot seems more flattering on me. Note, you can order with different (non-lug) soles: https://www.etsy.com/listing/622460105/new-clogs-moccasins-wooden-clogs-women

    I think someone on Andrea’s “I want to be her” blog that tipped me off to Lotta from Stockholm clogs. Pretty reasonable prices and the magpie in me went straight for a gold pair and a high yellow suede pair. There are often sales/seconds as well!

    Ooof. I know that clogs are a “thing” but…. I have no idea why. My mother was Dutch. I grew up with real clogs in my house (she gardened in them) and even then I thought they were ugly.

    But that is the beauty of beauty– it’s in the eye of the beholder.

      I’m with you. I don’t get the appeal at all! I also find them impossibly uncomfortable to walk in.

    I love the look of clogs, but when I try and wear them, I make so much noise and I am completely embarrassed! How do you walk in them without sounding like a herd of tap-dancing buffalo?? Even with the rubbery stuff on the bottom I’m just clop clop clopping around and I feel like a spectacle. Is there a technique you can teach??

    Finally a post that doesn’t sing a siren song to me! I love the look of clogs, but I have never been able to walk a step in them, as in, they fall off, I fall down. This is a fit issue, right? And I second Beth’s question—clogs present so many mysteries! These sure are good looking specimens, though…

    Does anyone know of a brand of clogs which have the interior big toe indentation? I remember this feature was the reason I was able to walk comfortably in them years ago. I think they were from the brand Olafs Daughter.

      I was just perusing the yellow ones by Magnafied, and they do.

    Clogs are so much fun and yet, so impractical for everyday life. I love the idea of just being able to slide my feet in and take off clomping. I bought a cheap pair from ASOS to sate my craving, but I still want every pair of these as well. (Count me among the clog-pilled.)

    I like the look of them, but I guess my feet are too narrow or low volume because I have a very hard time finding a pair I like that doesn’t fly off my feet if I try to walk. I will admire from afar, even though those blue ones are lovely.

    hi people! I said this before, but then I forgot – be careful when you schedule your booster. I got mine yesterday. Grateful to have it, of course! Feel mildly yucky today – question is, howwwww am I still this stupid? This wasn’t the day for that. Oh well.

    For those of you who have a difficult time keeping clogs on your feet…I always opt for the ones with backs––I’ve got two pair of Dansko with backs––and they never come off my feet. My feet are normal width with a high arch for those who need more info.

      Ditto!! Besides being cute imo, one big advantage of a clog is that since the soles are so stiff, your feet don’t seem to bend/pronate/etc. as much – and this can turn into a big deal later in life! (If you don’t have foot problems now, I recommend taking steps to make sure that you do not get any!) … … … … I have some Frankie Dansko boots that I can’t get my green superfeet into – I use these smaller arch supports, I forget the name – and then otherwise, I wear the superfeet with all my open-back clogs, at home during the winter. Point is, I am going to be on the lookout for just such closed-back clogs as cw recommends – bc if you can make them work, they can be really great!! Comfortable *and* cute, which some people I know think is not possible. (Literally!) … … … … However, I agree that it’s not worth falling, just to have the look. No no no. Yeah don’t do that.

    Love those yellow clogs! I’m always attracted to clogs when you write about them, and post photos of them. One of the interesting things about aging, though, is the padding we once had on our feet somehow disappears making clogs unwearable, at least for me. So, while I enjoy the posts, I can no longer wear clogs because of the wooden soles. I’m not quite comfortable shoe ready but clogs are now on the “verboten” list! 🤣

    I once saw a woman walking into a bookstore in Los Feliz and she was wearing clogs and she looked so cool! I went out and bought a pair and immediately fell and sprained my ankle. Clogs require a level of physical coordination I do not possess.

      Sorry to hear it! I broke my foot falling off the Beklina clogs…but still wear them. (The orthopedic boot I had to wear for months, though, wasn’t nearly as stylish.)

    I love clogs so much, and did not know about the brand Magnafield, so thank you! (Well, thank you/darn you!) I may have to spring for those yellow pair. For those of you who find them difficult to walk in, I find that wearing them with socks helps, and I tend to use arch supports in all my shoes (just the drugstore Dr Scholl brand, which you can take on and off and put on any shoe). I love that you can slip clogs on and off; I hate bothering with laces. And yes, I love how they look! (It’s the Euro-phile in me, I guess! 🙂
