kay, this is old news. Really old news. But it's an obvious moment of Celebriclogs worthiness that I've overlooked for years. Until today when I was doing some research on Carly Simon for my day job, and happened upon some photos of her that I just had to share. But first some "Huh, I didn't know that!" moments from my digging. Did you know that her father, Richard L. Simon, was the Simon in Simon & Schuster? Did you know that Carly Simon had quite a number of celebrity suitors...including Warren Beatty, Mick Jagger, Kris Kristofferson, and Jack Nicholson? Did... Continue reading

promised myself not to be a blogger who lets my blog languish. I hate to run across a website where that has taken place. There's nothing more forlorn than discovering a blog so full of fun things to look at and pages to explore, only to realize that the energetic fashionista behind all those interesting looks and wardrobe wonders suddenly stopped posting with no explanation at all. There have been many times that a Google search for a particularly fantastic looking pair of shoes has led me to a blog chock full of cool outfits of the day and titillating... Continue reading

ou don't have to look far on this blog to see that for a lot of us, fashion is a form of self-discovery. It's a journey I've made and documented on past pages here. And I'm sure if you had the time free in your schedule, you could tell a tale that would be full of insights and realizations. Just a couple weeks ago I received this message from PH. He's a clog fan from way back (as you'll learn below), but only recently has he found his footing and started living out his passion. (See photos at the bottom.)... Continue reading

'm only asking because I wish there were more wood-soled shoes being manufactured with stained soles. I love me some dark walnut and blonde alder clogs. But wouldn't it be fun to have an assortment of shoes that had soles that joined in with the fun? This image is pretty impossible to research. It's a product label photo for a line of Hue Original Denim Leggings. So all I think we can hope to do at this point is enjoy the view. Continue reading

hen there was this sweet message from Carl from Maryland who reports, "I recently gifted my girlfriend with her first pair of clogs, and she loves them! Now we go on wood-soled adventures together. Here's a picturesque shot of our his-and-hers Sanitas waiting by the door." Now this genuinely makes me smile! It's an adorable, endearing image. Continue reading

eanwhile, our fellow clog fanatic from down under has sent in this photo of a newly acquired addition to the collection. It's the Camilla clog bootie from Free People. My own sabot seeking partner, Melissa, tells me that right now there are a ton (or since we're talking about clogs, maybe I should say a cord) of wood-soled shoes on the FP site at the moment. That definitely merits some research and a follow up post all its own. Consider it added to the To Do list. Here in the northern hemisphere, these shoes look more like this. Continue reading

ecause you guys have such fun things to contribute! Take this observation from Melissa, our fellow clog lover from Arizona: How do you feel about the latest possible comeback of dr schools classic clunky wooden sandals? Had a pair in junior high last time I remember. And with those comments, she sent along a link to a page on the Anthropologie retail site which revealed the wooden wedges below. Well, how do you feel? I've experimented with Scholl's sandals and styles that are similar in the past, and they never worked for me. I mean, they are wood, and all.... Continue reading

here was a delightful message in my Inbox last week that read, Hello there, I am Belgian, i saw your website. I sale rare, luxury, beautiful new, used, vintage clogs different real brand!!! Prada, Gucci, Chanel, Miu Miu, Vera Wang, Rick Owens... Could you help me and put the link on your website? Now I'm always willing to lend a hand to a clog fan who has some shoes that need to find a new home. But eBay seller ppgeo15 had something astonishing to show me. It's not a joke you can see on EBay. Here some pictures. And attached... Continue reading

een busy changing jobs! And look what my former co-workers surprised me with on my last day at work Wednesday! I guess they heard I have a clog blog and a fondness for shoes! So my partner in clog craving, Melissa, and I sat down in front of my laptop that night and went browsing through the Dansko website. I'll be getting a delivery sometime next week, and yes, I will share photos. In the meantime, I've got a bunch of wooden goodness to post. Today I'm stopping by my new job to shake a few hands and make a... Continue reading

Melissa: Aren't those closed heel Hasbeens awesome! If they actually came in my size, I could see them moving to the head of the line in my closet and getting worn all the time! And I'm someone who doesn't repeat shoes often! But I can't complain too much about the lack of tall size clogs. Through diligence and persistence, I truly am not wanting for fun shoes to put on my feet. And, oh, yeah, I love Sandgrens' clogs, too. Same size issue for me, though. My daughter did get a pair, and she loves them and has worn them a lot.
Carl: And thank YOU for taking the time to write such a supportive message. I'm all in favor of everyone in America finding their own drummer to march to!

ffbeat clogs call my name on a regular basis. And not very tentatively, either. It's usually with the sort of insistent tone that accompanies the voices in your head that say thing like, "The car right in front of you just slammed on the brakes. You'd better do that, too." Or, "Gosh, that cookie sheet is pretty hot after having been in the oven for 15 minutes. I think I should put it down and use a mitt." So you can imagine the imperative I felt when the new closed heel Swedish Hasbeens styles popped up in my Inbox this... Continue reading

he article "Why Do We Breakup Shop?" on Racked.com begins... A few months ago, I found myself in love, or serious like, or at least a kind of real infatuation, with a pair of clogs. “Clogs?” you may ask. “Who can love clogs?” But let me explain. These were not Mario Batali Crocs-in-the-kitchen-type clogs, or even your cool-great-aunt-who-is-a-midwife clogs. These were the hippest clogs that a person who’s ever shopped for clogs can aspire to. From the brand No. 6, they’ve got a chunky wooden heel and a luxe suede upper in a color the company referred to as “mocha.”... Continue reading

nd finally, there are these delightful clog sandals I just spotted over on the webpages of Bed|Stü. Style name: Somalia. We've been hearing from a number of other clog fans during this fresh burst of posts, but this one is my own personal fave. As you've see, I'm just one of a bunch of footwear fanatics that wanted to share my latest find! Continue reading

or you fans of the traditional Troentorp line of clogs, there's this report from one of my regular readers about a couple new colors that have been added to their mix: Hello Lindsey, It's been a while since I've been in touch, but I saw this ad announcing TT's new suede colors and I had to make sure you'd seen it. Two of these styles, the Bordeaux Durer and the Olive Chef are on their website in sizes up to 46! Myself, I contacted them about the Durer in the olive green; I think it's a handsome combo (esp. the... Continue reading

inding fabulous footwear is always a delight. But finding those fabulous shoes at sensational savings makes them even sweeter. Not that long ago we made the acquaintance of a clog lover from Arizona named Melissa. From the photos she shared at the time, I could tell she is a fan of clog sandals. And that stands to reason if you're a clog fan who lives in the southwestern U. S. Melissa wrote to share that she'd made a fashion find of her own: Had to send u this crazy awesome sale! These are dreamy for spring💕 what a great deal!... Continue reading

pside. That's not a word one would normally use to begin a post. But I haven't used the image of the letter U fashioned out of clogs in a long time so I figured I'd just go for it! Far from being arbitrary, though, the word upside is germane to the topic at hand. Because I've been a clog blogger for most of the past eight years. And if you've spent anytime at all on the planet, you know that sticking with anything for a long time has its benefits. Which leads me to the particular observation that one of... Continue reading

eciding what to call this post wasn't easy! Tonight I am a blogger on a mission: get these bloody posts online! So I'm not in a mood to puzzle over the details more than I need to. This particular post doesn't really fall in step with the theme of readers I've heard from lately. In fact, I really wanted to entitle it "Booty McBootFace." But then I realized that if I just put it in the queue following "So Many Clog Fans, So Little Time...part 5," I could have a little in joke and name it something other than "part... Continue reading

an do! That's an attitude that I find in clog fans far and wide. We're not the sort of people to let the shoes (and other things) we like pass us by. And this e-mail from ECHID reader LiddyAnna demonstrates it powerfully. Lindsey: I started messing around with making some high heeled clogs, starting with standard "Swedish style" clogs I've never seen this anywhere (not to say somebody hasn't done it) but... It's Easy. Results can be GREAT. It can be done in a "reversible" fashion Obviously of great interest for GUYS who can't find decent higher heeled clogs. But... Continue reading

nd it goes without saying that I am always in awe of the awesomeness of Swedish Hasbeens clogs. So in awe, in fact, that I've used the word and its derivations three times in just two sentences. Their clog styles are that good. But don't take my word for it. Have a look at the images they've sent me this winter. Platforms! Chunky heels! Lace ups! Shearling boots! Oh, my! Then go browse their website here. Continue reading

eanwhile, regular reader Tracy got me all stirred up with some truly fabulous clogs for sale down in Argentina. For me, they'd be the illustrations to accompany the definition for "shoe lust" in a fashion dictionary. Naturally, with my tall size feet, I find myself standing barefoot on the sidelines only watching the fun. But those of you who are located toward the middle of the bell curve for women's footwear may become smitten. Seriously, these clogs are so distinctively unusual, I find them absolutely irresistible. I hope you do, too. Tracy writes, Hi, A couple weeks ago I was... Continue reading

hen there was this message back in mid-January from a regular reader who goes by simply PH. What can I say but "Welcome to the party here on Every Clog Has Its Day!" (Thanks for the pics, PH! And can I just say, I can't believe that a man wearing clogs would even arouse a first glance in southern California, let alone a second glance.) Hi, Lindsey, I've been reading your blog, specifically Guy Day Friday posts -- it seems you've stopped posting Guy Day Friday posts, but I wanted to share my clog story. I am a regular kind...

e truly are living in a time of change. A time when people are much more willing to say whatever is that's on their minds. Things that most likely wouldn't have been expressed five or ten years ago. One stunning example is the number of e-blasts that I've received from retailers that go where businesses would never have dreamed of going before. I'm referring to those messages that use expletives in their Subject lines. Yes, expletives. I'm certainly not a prude. H@!l, I'm all in favor of the internet reflecting the way people really communicate. But I will admit to... Continue reading

n which I try to catch up on the backlog of worthy messages in my Inbox. Beginning with this e-mail from a regular reader who hails from South Africa but now resides in London. Hi, Lindsey Hope you are well. Wishing you all the very best for 2017- lots of wooden goodness (as you say). I have found a new Portuguese brand that you featured about a year ago - I know their styles are just up your alley. And then there's a link to the latest awesome collection from XUZ clogs. Well, if you'll permit me to indulge in... Continue reading

Gary: I'm a Hasbeens fan, too! It's a shame they cost so much. I have one lone pair of lace up short boots I was able to snag a few years back when they made styles large enough to fit me. And I'm thinking that thanks to you reminding me of them with your comment, I just might wear them to work tomorrow!
