DK if you need to sit down for this news, but here it is: The humble clog, with its clunky wooden sole and bohemian vibe, is more. Stylish. Than. Ever. Really!!! It popped up in recent runway shows like Lanvin, Molly Goddard, Miu Miu, and even Dior, proving this point in a major way (see the high-fashion pics below). Once I picked up on the trend, I started to notice them EVERYWHERE. I spotted them on the subway, they were popping up in all my favorite stores, and I even
heard saw coworkers sporting them.
The New Yorker has dubbed wearers of the iconic shoe the “clogerati,” and you can’t turn a sidewalk corner in NYC without seeing at least one member. In an age where “ugly” shoes are becoming more prominent than your standard high heels and flats (based on my own anecdotal evidence, at least), there has never been a better time to fully welcome the clog—arguably 2019’s newest “It” shoe—into your life.
Need further convincing? No. 6 clogs have gained an almost cult-like following, Aidy Bryant’s character, Annie, dons several pairs in her new Hulu show Shrill, and there’s even an Instagram account dedicated to the #ClogLife.
The styles don’t all look like you emerged straight out of the base of a windmill in the Netherlands, by the way. They come in the classic round-toed slides, but also have open-toed silhouettes and more strappy designs if you’re going for a non-traditional iteration.
If you want to join the ~clogerati~ yourself, slip on the below shoes for size. #ClogLife starts now.
