Yesterday, my friend and fellow Frisky staffer Jessica IM’d me a link that took me to these furry clogs for sale on Endless.com:
Jessica: Talk me into or out of these clogs.
Leo: Hmm … out of, I think.
Jessica: Really? I need new boots for winter. I can’t find my old ones.
Leo: Well, a furry clog does not a winter boot make … Keep reading »
I’ve been seeing clogs in all forms on the pages of glossy magazines and on the feet of celebrities. I’m sure this is a big trend, but how can an average, moderately-stylish woman take part? I don’t want to look as if I stepped out of the ’70s, though. – Nicole
I know exactly where you’re coming from. So much can go wrong when wearing clogs because they were a shoe that really defined an era. Having lived through one resurgence of the clog back in the early ’90s, I think I’ve figured out the best current way to wear them. Find out after the jump. Keep reading »
Clogs came back. And they’ve yet to go away. We were slow to accept the clunky ’90s footwear, but have gradually learned to accept their place in the trend-o-sphere (and possibly in our closets). When we spotted these high heel clog boots on Asos, however, we did a full-on whaaa? The clog plus boot, eh? So what would you call these? Cloogs? Blogs? (Oh wait, no, that’s something else.) So here you have it, people: Cloogs. We should have known something like this would happen, but now we’re fully prepared for the next onslaught of clog-like footwear, including Clumps, Cligettos, Clogfoms, and Clog-Clops.
What do you think of Cloogs? We have to admit, we’d probably come around if they were styled with something hot. [Asos] Keep reading »
Clogs are sooooo big this season. Well, every single pair except these pierced nipple clogs. (Glimpse the uncensored version, after the jump!) They were designed by Kenneth Kirschner, a creative director at an advertising firm in Amsterdam. Normally, here at The Frisky, we’re all for crazy out-there shoes, but not ones that look like they need a bra. Besides, where are you going to wear them — a Super Bowl half-time show?

Is it just us, or is the usually adorable Alexa Chung looking more appropriate for a day in Amish country rather than front row at the Chanel couture show? [We know, we know, they're Chanel clogs, but still ... -- Editor] [Elle UK] Keep reading »
Depending on when you were born, you may remember when clogs, those wooden-soled shoes originally worn by fair-skinned milkmaids in Holland, were resurrected as favorable footwear for the fashion-forward in the ’70s and then again in the early ’90s. For those of you who may have missed the earlier waves (or just miss the earlier waves), you’re in luck (?). Clogs are cycling back into fashion, as seen on the catwalk at Chanel and Louis Vuitton, not to mention the feet of everyone’s favorite fashionista, Sarah Jessica Parker. This time around, the clogs are high-heeled, making the already-difficult-to-walk-in shoes a virtual death trap on the streets. Usually, when function is sacrificed for style, the pay-off is a hot look. Do you think that’s the case with these clogs? [via Daily Mail]

Before I started ninth grade, I carefully selected a few new pieces of clothing that I thought would help me make the transition from awkward junior high student to stylish high schooler. Among these items were a pair of Gap jeans, a brown silk-blend knit Banana Republic top, and suede J.Crew clogs. Man, I loved those shoes. They made me feel so chic — and tall! — as I clomped around my high school’s hallways. Keep reading »
