Clogging the Streets: The NEW ClogsPosted on July 18th, 2010 No comments
The wedge has reigned as the king of spring and summer shoes for the last half-decade or so, but when time came for me to get a new pair, I felt strangely ill–kind of like when watching too many episodes of Jersey-themed “reality” shows. Luckily, clogs have reasserted their place among shoes as as a legitimate alternative to wedges or high-heeled sandals ever since they showed up at the Chanel Spring/Summer 2010 fashion show last year. Thanks, Karl! This doesn’t mean you have to emulate Karl Lagerfeld’s version or traditional Dutch clogs, though. Everyone from Jeffrey Campbell to Lanvin has jumped on the clog bandwagon with versions that run that gamut from more traditional close-toe clogs to open-toe sleeker versions.
Here are our picks for the cutest clogs of the season.
DV Dolce Vita “Jezebal” clog combines a cute peeptoe with a stacked heel and oodles of style:
The Charli platform clog from Jeffrey Campbell more closely emulates the Chanel S/S 2010 clogs and features a convertible strap that can be worn along the front or as a slingback. Wear with pushed down socks and a floral dress.
Sam Edelman’s Flair clog marries the standard clog silhouette with rough-and-tumble burnished chain accents.
When fall rolls around, these clog booties from Opening Ceremony combine style and comfort perfectly.
