he internet never fails to astound me. Even now after all these years, I still marvel at the things you can find online. But every so often I am dazzled by the sheer breadth and scope of things you can buy online, too. Who knew? The direct link to this eBay listing is here. Continue reading

lame Jimmy Page. Or even more specifically, his bass player back in the day, John Paul Jones. I've mentioned that I'm in a band here in the Chicago. We're a tribute band with a twist. Every couple months we put together a show featuring a new artist. So rather than flogging the same hits each time we take the stage, we work up a whole new set of music. Ambitious? Without a doubt. Exhilarating? You bet. Time-consuming? You don't know the half of it! It takes plenty of focus and energy to make it through my workday in one piece.... Continue reading

talian shoe maker Ouigal just came out with an open-toed clog sandal named Carol that you can view and covet for yourself over on It's available in a trio of colors. The pink shoe is "Bubble." The light blue shoe is "Sky." And the clog sandal in natural suede? That's listed as "Phard." WTP? Comparable wooden goodness from Ouigal (but no mysterious terminology) available over on Continue reading

kay, you fans of wood-soled shoes who find yourself in need of tall sizes. A whole set of those crazy platform sandals that Rick Owens created is available in only size 11 over on But they ain't cheap. Sharp-eyed readers will recall that Mr. Owens' Spring 2015 ready-to-wear collection got a belated nod here on ECHID last September. Happy shopping! Continue reading

ne of my regular readers just dropped a message in my Inbox today directing my attention to the Toms shoes website. Toms is known for their social minded approach to business. As they declare with justifiable pride on their website, "With every product you purchase, Toms will help a person in need. One for one." What my reader and I both found to be cause for celebration was not only the fact that they're offering clogs as part of their product line, but also that they're manufacturing those clogs from a size 5 up to a size 12. Bless you,... Continue reading

Jan: You shop like I do! The weird shoes are the ones that tend to call my name. Keep us posted if you buy a pair. We'd love to see pics and get a fit report.

spotted these two clog-flavored confections. The Sherma certainly appears to be on a wood sole. I can't tell for sure about the Ellen. Unfortunately, the product description is no help. I have long been a wood clog purist, but I have to admit, I purchased a faux wood pair of clog boots at the end of last year, and I've enjoyed wearing them quite a bit. You can surf over to the Nasty Gal website and take a look at these styles here and here. Also: I wanted to say "Hey!" to Tiffany who stopped me on my way to... Continue reading

Jan: Ha! So it does! I was so busy thinking the Silje didn't have enough platform for my current style preferences that I didn't even register the fact that the toe is pointed!

GL: Indeed! Though with price tags like that one, I find that I do have my limits!
ust look at all the wooden goodness that just popped up on the JC website! OMG! Hope you can find space in your closet for all of these! The Silje is my personal fave (hence the bigger image), but I would certainly take a crack at the Malou wedge heel traditional clog if it came in my size. And I love how the most over the top of those outrageous applique clog sandals (that bring to mind the joyous excess of Irregular Choice's most irreverent shoe designs) is already marked "SOLD OUT." How gratifying to know that lots of footwear... Continue reading

o sooner do I write up a post about how there's nothing to report when the next day I stumble across an intriguing new clog. Apologies to any of you who might be interested in it. It's apparently been available online long enough to have sold out in multiple sizes. I'll just make up an excuse and say I was waiting 'til now to tell you about it so that my U. S. readers could use their tax refunds to splurge on making this purchase. Yes, that's what was going on. Seriously, some price points just leave me speechless. Here's... Continue reading

on't think I've been slacking off! I've been keeping my eyes open, but I only have one sighting of wooden goodness to mention. Bless you, Calleen Cordero, for never failing to catch our eyes! I just got an e-mail about this Los Angeles based shoemaker's Fall 2016 line. Thought you'd like to see the image that accompanied it. Glad to see that what tops our list, tops hers! P. S. Once you click through to the Calleen Cordero website, they currently have the Spring/Summer 2016 fashion shoot video posted. It's been cold, grey, and wet here in Chicago for days....

he latest discoveries by your friendly, neighborhood footwear fanatic. Re-introducing Calou Stockholm I published a fairly lengthy post on Calou clogs back in 2011 (and you can see it on ECHID here), but this Swedish maker of stylish footwear fell off my radar over the years. But yesterday while nosing around the Zappos website, I ran across a couple of intriguing designs bearing the Calou Stockholm name. These are decidedly both in the clog boot lane so you know they made my heart go pitter-pat. But surf on over to the Calou Stockholm website and go gaga over the variety... Continue reading

London Lady: Ooo! Might those be the Response clog sandal as pitctured on this page? I got Melissa a pair via eBay a couple of years back, and I have the closed toe pair known as the Answer (I think). Fun shoes indeed!

So many shoes. So little time. It's so true. Just sighted: Piper platform shoe from Freebird x Steven, available through Nasty Gal. John Fluevog is also showing us clog addicts some love once again. And this pair from Jeffrey Campbell is back on my radar again over at Solestruck. They say it runs large. And they've dropped the price. Those are two features that always get my attention. Oh, dear. I initially dismissed the Piper from Freebird x Steven from my wishlist when I sat down to compose this post. I've long been on the search for the perfect oxford... Continue reading

hat else could you expect to feel for virtual footwear? My favorite feature: "Walking sound with volume, on and off control." Be sure to click through to the Second Life Marketplace website and take a moment to ponder the other colors and textures available. And just for the record, yes, if they were real, I probably would see if they came in my size and order a pair. Continue reading

o I mentioned being on a boot kick lately. Not booties that stop at your ankles. But honest to DOC* boots. You know, that reach up to your knee? Or higher? And when you've got footwear that comes that far up on your leg, you've got to have the right clothing to work with it. And to work it! Like skinny jeans. And leggings. Rest assured, I have those items already hanging in my wardrobe arsenal. But there's this creative part of me that looks at a situation and pops up with a "What if?" question from time to time....

nsert the usual blogger apologies here: been super busy, so much on my To Do list, been thinking of you. Well, it may be true, but I'm not cutting myself any slack. If I'm the wood-soled shoe evangelist I've set out to be, I need to share the excitement whenever I feel it. And that's why I'm a bit stunned I haven't mentioned a certain Sam Edelman pair of clog sandals that I ran across weeks ago. I even did and ECHID search and then physically visited the past couple months of posts to make sure I haven't told you... Continue reading

Gary: Thanks so much for your comment. I'm glad I could help inspire you. There are a number of clog makers I've featured here over the years who simply decided one day that they would make shoes. You might want to reach out to some of them to see what words of wisdom and insight they have to offer. And please keep us posted on your journey!

PHILIP and London Lady: Thank you! I wrestle to get something posted regularly because I know there clog fans like yourselves out there, but I also do it because I just plain feel like I let myself down if I don't. I mean, there are cool shoes to enjoy, and it brightens my week when I can share my finds with people who appreciate them!

his is just crazy. I dig this blog. A lot. I've really enjoyed creating a space where like minded lovers of all things wooden and good can come together to revel in some of the fabulous footwear that fashion designers have dreamed up. If I had my way (or as Melissa would put it, if I were Duchess of The Universe), I would devote at least three hours each day to researching, designing, writing, and uploading a brand new post. Because I dig shoes. And this blog has been an excellent portal for sharing and celebrating that passion. But the... Continue reading

ell, to be honest, I can think of a couple dozen things worth telling you about. But in the hectic run up to my band's performance this past Tuesday night and then dealing with the aftermath of all the things at work I've had to catch up on because I chose to take a day off, I have been running non-stop. At least that's how it feels to me. You'll have to ask my partner in footwear fantasizing, Melissa, whether or not I've been anything other than a moving blur in her field of vision. But in between the earning... Continue reading
