Can’t do it, can’t do it, cant do. Getting on the clog bandwagon has been a back and forth dilemma for almost a year now. I like to stay ahead of the trends, and wearing clogs before the masses was my initial plan, but unfortunately the selection at the time would of done me more harm than good. Why should I put on plain black clogs? The same black clogs that were in style almost a decade ago? Have we not evolved in our designing abilities?
Then Proenza Schouler proved me wrong, with their version of the clogs and I was back on along with everyone else it seemed..
I’ve seen so many interpretations of the clog, during the spring/summer season of 2010, I started to wonder if the government made it a requirement for designers to make them. On the plus side there were choices when it came to look, comfort level and cost for me. Clogs are trend shoes, not classics, like kitten heel or flats, so paying a lot for something that will have a shelf like of months, doesn’t make sense to me. Still, I decided to take part in my right of passage as a fashionista and shop for a pair that would suite me.
I found a few that were cool, outrageous, expensive, trendy and extremely high. Some were actually beautiful while others took my breathe away and not in a good way.
