To Clog Or Not To Clog — 25 Styles That Could Win Over Any Clog Skeptic

When I saw clogs strutting down the runway at Chanel’s Spring 2010 show, my shoulders almost instantly crept up towards my ears and my nose crinkled — yes, we’re talking major cringe moment. My sense of apprehension had nothing to do with the footwear styles being showcased but, rather, I shuddered at the idea of all the rink-a-dink knock-off clogs that would flood the market. Would more dreaded Crocs-like shoes be released? Would  we start seeing those orthopedic-esque rubber clogs with ridiculous prints on them? I feared for the upcoming “dreckitudes” (to quote André Leon Talley) that I’d see walking down the street in their clunky, grandma clogs. Yuck.

Much to my dismay, footwear companies have, in fact, embraced clogs as a spring/summer must-have, but they’re reinvented the classic style to make it modern and chic, adding hefty platforms heels; jazzing them up with embellishments like motorcycle chains, studs, buckle straps, leather braiding, folksy floral embroidery and all-over glitter; and experimenting with materials like wool, suede, denim, leather, and satin. Even more interesting are the clog-inspired platform slingbacks, T-strap heels, ankle-strap sandals, and booties we’ve been seeing — with most featuring chunky wooden heels and exposed metal reinforcements along their periphery that bring home that pay homage to the traditional Dutch footwear style.

Here, 25 styles that would make clog skeptics like myself reconsider their position (and yes, a few of these are on my personal shopping list!).
