I think the last time that I wore a pair of clogs, I was in high school. I remember being so intensely in love with them [cue the undulating fabric of time for my shoe flashback] They were a heather gray flannel upper, with brass studs connecting the upper to the solid, chocolate rich wood sole. They were wedge clogs that I purchased from J. Crew, one of my favorite high school shopping haunts. I would wear them in the 14 inches of snow that we'd have during the winters and again during the showers of April. I walked 3 miles in them daily, to-and-from the train station in my town to my house. I literally wore those shoes until the rubber soles wore off and continued to wear them, wearing down the wood to splinters. [cue again the undulating fabric of time bringing us back to reality]
However, I am not so sure that I am willing to resurrect, for me, the passion of the clog. Some styles are better left in the tomb.
The fashion forecast for spring 2010 is inundated with clogs thanks to the likes of Mary - Kate and Ashley Olsen, oh, and Chanel's Spring 2010 collection. From the classic to the crazy, there's a sole-satisfaction for everyone. Everyone but me. And though there was a time in my life when I, too, indulged in le clog, I prefer to let it remain that way -- an undulating fabric of time shoe flashback.
What say you? Are you girls feeling the return of the clog?
