Clogs clacked their way into the trendysphere this summer a few seconds after Alexa Chung was spotted managing to walk serenely in a pair. Chanel seems to be the origin of this renaissance, with the high street hot on its shapely heels. Walking in them does take a bit of getting used to, but it’s worth persevering as they gradually become slipper-like on the comfort scale. We’ve had a sneaky (well, not really sneaky, it’s kind of our job…) look at spring summer 2011’s styles and the clog is definitely going to be around for another season.
If you bought clogs last summer let us first congratulate your extreme trendiness, and secondly assure you as you stare morosely out of the window at the general air of unpleasant chillyness, that clogs are for the winter too. You can try layering your clogs with woolly tights and socks, juxtaposing greys with browns for that geeky look seen on several catwalks. Or, if you don’t want fashionable but rather soggy feet, get some clog boots. The classic chunky wooden sole units and stud details translate really well onto boots, like these lovely little numbers from Rocket Dog. With their substantial block heels they can be smart as well as casual, and the plush faux-fur trim gives them a sexy edge. Everyone made a fuss over them when they arrived at Scorpio HQ, and we think you’ll like them too.
