What are Clogs?

If you are looking for effortless wear and on-trend style, then look no further than the unsung hero of the footwear world: the clog. As stylish as they are practical, clogs are set to rule the summer, and we can totally see why. After months and months spent at home wearing mostly slippers and house shoes, clogs are a comfortable progression into the outdoor world again. Perfect for pairing with everything from three quarter length trousers to garden-ready summer dresses, our selection of slip-on clogs will keep you comfortable at home or take you out and about, whenever you wish.

What are Clogs?

Clogs have a rich history, rooted in the working class communities of Europe, particularly in countries like The Netherlands, Sweden, and England. These iconic shoes, often associated with Dutch culture, have been around for centuries. They're characterized by their sturdy, wooden soles and leather uppers, although traditionally, they were carved entirely from wood. Crafted to offer durability and protection, clogs were the go-to footwear for workers in various fields including farming, mining, and factory work, offering a robust shield against the elements and workplace hazards. Today, they’ve transformed into a fashion statement, melding comfort with a touch of rustic style, yet still echoing the echoes of their practical and hardy origins.

Are Clogs Bad for Your Feet?

The primary culprits of discomfort and foot health issues are ill-fitting shoes, subpar quality, and excessive heel height. Optimal foot health is nurtured by well-fitted, supportive footwear. While high heels can induce pain over prolonged wear due to the elevated position they thrust the feet into, alternatives like clogs, with their flat or low-heel design, promise comfort for extended wear.

Clogs are engineered to bolster the foot's innate arch and contour, promoting proper alignment. Their classic closed-toe and low heel design are tailored for sustained comfort, minimizing strain. Many clogs boast shock-absorbing features, cushioning not just the feet but also shielding the ankles and hips from impact.

For foot health and footwear longevity, variety is key. Rotating through different pairs avoids overstraining muscles and ensures shoes retain their form. It’s not an advisory confined to high heels; wearing the same pair daily can overburden specific muscles and joints and may hasten the wear of your beloved shoes. Plus, giving shoes a day off ensures they dry out thoroughly, maintaining their shape and comfort for longer.

How are Clogs Supposed to Fit?

Finding the perfect fit for clogs can be a bit personal since we all have unique feet. However, there are a few universal fitting tips to keep in mind. Your heel should move freely and easily, ensuring the clog isn’t too restrictive yet stays securely on your foot with every step. The instep should feel snug and supportive but not constricting, offering a harmonious blend of comfort and security.

Your toes should have their own little party space – not cramped, but free to wiggle and breathe. If they’re nudging the end of the toe box, it might be time to consider a step up in size. Remember, a well-fitted clog is the secret to experiencing the comfort and style that has made this iconic footwear a timeless classic.

How Long to Break in Clogs?

The "break-in" period for your new clogs can vary depending on their material and design. To ease into ultimate comfort, consider donning your clogs indoors before taking them out and about. Like a fine wine, they'll mature beautifully, adapting gently to the contours of your feet with each wear.

Slipping on a pair of thick, cosy socks can expedite the breaking-in process, giving the clogs a bit of a stretch. However, tread wisely, as socks can sometimes slide, so you’ll want to step with care. For an extra layer of comfort and prevention, strategically place plasters over potential "hot spots" to keep any rubbing at bay.

In essence, patience is your companion here. Each wear will usher your clogs closer to that bespoke fit, where style nestles seamlessly with comfort. Before you know it, every step will be a cozy embrace, making your clogs an extension of you – uniquely crafted, supremely comfortable.

Long Dresses

Clogs and dresses? Oh, absolutely! This pairing offers a delightful blend of comfort and femininity.
