I used to think of clogs as a "mom shoe." Then two things; I became a mom and simultaneously the clog trend skyrocketed.

You may have seen on Instagram my growing collection of clogs this spring and summer. I've only worn the sandal version so far, with either an open or closed toe and an ankle strap, and I'm adding the classic version by Sandgrens to my collection for fall.


What I love about them: the closed toe for the cooler months, the real wooden sole, the low heel height to maximize comfort and walkability, the neutral color, and the real leather. These are such a versatile shoe and look great with everything from jeans to dresses, and they pair great with tights as well. They're a perfect transition shoe in that they're open in back but have a closed toe, perfect for these early fall days with chilly mornings and warm afternoons.


A few notes on fit: they should fit tight at first, but the leather will stretch with time and mold to your foot. If you're not used to wearing clogs, the wooden sole can be somewhat of an adjustment the first time you wear them, but there's nothing like the feel of broken in clogs.

Love these! I'm wearing this style here.
