The Clog Comeback

I've tried to ignore it for months now, thinking it might go away. But my friends, clogs have made a comeback! From the runways and fashion blogs to storefront displays and my InStyle, clogs are everywhere these days.

I've never owned a pair and most likely never will. I'll be sticking to my ballet flats and flip flops this summer (I know, so very uncool) but will you be buying a pair? Or do you already have some and just need to dust them off? So what do you say: Yay or Nay?




And just a reminder, this is how clogs used to look back in the 1800's. It's absolutely crazy these wooden shoes are still around!

I can not do it, I just can't. Not me, makes my feet look like Ronald McDonald's

Katie said...

I don't think I can do it, but I guess you should never say never!

Senorita Fashionista said...

I wish I had kept mine from high school days, but I am totally in they are more stylish than ever!

Slumber Designs said...

I could never pull these off. But how is that celebrities always look so good in something that looks so ridiculous on me?

rouli said...

Definitely nay for me!

Tamara Nicole said...

Hmmm not so much for me? reminds me of my mom back in the day lol. I';m sure if they had a cool style it might be ok on other poeple lol!

RLG said...

I'm no slave to fashion, so yes, I love mine. So much easier esp when you're trying to get out the door with a few little ones (in the fall and winter). But with summer on the horizon, flip flops for sure. xoxo

Nooooooooooooooooo....

OceanDreams said...

I don't like clogs, they are too clunky for me!

eliza said...

i actually love the clog comeback, but i won't be wearing any myself as i tend to stick to flats & avoid shoes that will make me any taller!!

thanks so much for the sweet comment on my blog :)

I will most certainly look like the last image if I purchase clogs. Love Rachel's outfit! Just think it'd be so much cuter with some little satin Raposo flats.
She works it though. Happy tuesday sweets! xo

Lavender and Lilies said...

I'm not a fan of clunky ones. I might not mind a few pairs but I don't imagine myself ever wearing them.

Glam Girl said...

I can't say I'm very happy bout this trend, it looks well in pictures, I don't think I'll wear it

Trish said...

No Ma'am! Can't do it!

And I agree, how come the celebs can pull it off and look cute? I just think they are way too chunky shapeless. Don't get me started on crocs. I know some people swear by them but I just can't do those either!

Deliciously Organized said...

I'm a pretty big flats person myself. And sandals. I'm not sure about clogs for me...at least for now :)

Tiny Quirks said...

haha i think clogs are so ugly, but they're so chunky and they pull together any outfit! i'm kind of obsessed with them....tehee

Hello Lover... said...

Say it ain't so! I will not be jumping into this clogwearing bandwagon. And yes it is so true - celebrities somehow manage to pull off (very stylishly) looks none of us regular folk ever could!

Thanks for the comment on my blog, it means so much!

Maria said...

Holy cow, I love your blog and your comment which i read at work made my day!!!
I kept reading the same about the clog trend and I hesitate, however I love the images you posted of them, you may have changed my mind!!!

Jaime @ La vie...J'aime said...

I can't do it either! Even if Chanel started the trend again lol

CL, said...

ah i was sceptical at first, although if karl thinks they work (chanel s/s '10) then hmmm maybe i could compromise! but great pictures :) happy easter doll!

ashlina said...

oooh i love those wedge clogs....yummy!

La Dolfina said...

OMG I love clogs!! If they are truly back that makes me very happy :)
I'm going to go find me some now...
Thanks!

tinypaperheart said...

i've been seeing clogs more, too!

Anna said...

not into clogs either! i kept hoping it would go away too, but alas here they are...STILL! haha mary kate makes them look so fab, but i don't think i could pull it off!

I actually do own a pair of clogs by Michael Kors that I adore and where whenever I can. They have a nice heel so with the right boot cut jeans look great! Love your blog, I am so glad you commented so I could be elcomed by your lovely furry friend and find you! Dog lover myself,

Kerri said...

If I could guarantee I'd look as fab as these celebs in them, I'd buy them in a jiffy, but as I don't want to run the risk of looking like a dutch milk maid I think I'll give them a miss. But never say never!

bananas. said...

no, no, no! i just can't do it! sorry. but you go on with your clog self!!!

Sonya said...

Yah for sure! However, I like the peep toe ones a lot more than the closed toe, looks more modern and less old-time cloggy.

Sarah said...

Not a clogger but have considered succumbing to the pressure since the dansko are cloglike and comfy. although i'd only wear them with long pants.

DiamondsandTulle said...

I like those peep-toes! I'm okay with them - will have to see if I get a deal on a pair or not.

kirstyb said...

i have a pair they arrived yesterday. they are super hard to walk in LOL. will take some practice! and where to wear them?
On a leisurly stroll lol xoxox

Semi Expat said...

I love the look of them I have to say... but you know that old saying - if you are old enough to remember wearing a trend the first time you should not indulge again and I am afraid UNFORTUNATELY I fall into this category :-( !!!

DANDELION DAYDREAMER said...

What a lovely blog! I look forward to browsing through it this evening, love your picks! as for the clogs.... undecided! xox

LA said...

Clogs or not clogs, that is the questions that is driving me crazy... =)
But finally the fashion will win haha

jah!!!

Sarah said...

If only! I love how they've come into their own this season. I'd embrace clogs if I were a more coordinated walker, but in clogs, I would only be able to stand in one place, which might not be a bad thing...

iamchasingthirty said...

I was just eyeing a pair on Piperlime. I think they're darling. Now whether or not I can pull them off (and be semi-comfortable!), that will be the question!

Josie said...

I desperately wanted clogs when the girls on "Full House" wore them. But I really don't think I have the nerve or the ability to pull them off now... Bravo to those who do, though!

drollgirl said...

i think i find this trend a bit baffling! but i can be VERY SLOW to absorb and accept things that disturbed me in the past! some of them are worse than others. and i don't see me wearing any of them. :)

carolina postcard said...

yikes - those are never cute, even on an Olson twin. Nope, don't think I'll be going there.

Missy said...

cant believe we did similar posts again! we must both be on the same fashion page! fab blog sweetie x

apparellel said...

Beth@The Stories of A to Z said...

LOL! That last pic is great. I'm not a clog girl myself but I like the look...just not on me. Thanks for visiting my blog and stopping to say hello. Blessings.

Fashion Meets Food said...

I am not all about the clog. I think it's tacky and I just can't talk myself into something hideous. Although I am the one that HATES gladiators!

xo

Brandi said...

I'm so not a clog person. I'm much happier with ballet flats -- simple and sleek. I'm afraid if I wore clogs, one would fly off my foot someday and seriously injure a passer-by.

Shannon of ** Happiness Is...** said...

I've been trying to ignore this too! Grrr. Nay for me. Never liked them. Plus they fall off your feet so easily ;) xo

Jessica said...

I like the open toed clogs a lot...but not so much with these close toed ones...spring and summer are for tooooes!

Kristin said...

They've been growing on me. Jeffrey Campbell has a pair that I love!

Lola said...

i'm saying yay, but i'll buy sandals inspired by clogs 'cuz i'm only 16.

Lorena said...

I am so upset at myself!
I had the COOLEST clogs ever and gave them away a few years back.... I never learn the lesson that fashion is a boomerang!
