Oh Lindsey! They Look AWESOME! An August Smagust Those boot are made for wearing! So are they winter warm? Are they fully sheep skinned lined? i take it you wear them barefoot like most UGGS? So did you get a 11 or a 12? And how did they fit? I think I'm in Boot envy again! And they look like they would be perfect for the cold winters we have here in Kansas! And I could get me and the wife matching pairs of them! Ok So I want a Special Full Review from You! With Lots of Pictures! Ok I'm Totally in Lust for them Now! But you Look Great as Usual! <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 TTYS, Matt

I just looked at the Nordies Size chart for UGG's and it says a 12 is a 43 and a 11 is a 42 and a 41 is a 10 which is what I am. i'm still think about getting the 11 though. http://shop.nordstrom.com/s/ugg-australia-savanna-boot-women/3164964?origin=sizechart&tn=Sizeandfit_popup And I'm really loving the Chocolate! Oh! it is just Sooooooooooooooo YUMMY LOOKing! LOL! http://shop.nordstrom.com/S/ugg-australia-savanna-boot-women/3164964?origin=category&resultback=878 Well I think I'm still confused except the color! YUMMY CHOCOLATE! TTYS, Matt

Oh Lindsey What are we going to do! We need more info on the fit of these! I'm LOVING Those UGG Australia Savannah clog boots and it gets Cold enough and Snows enough here in Kansas to wear them! But what Size? I know all of my wife's UGG's are a size 5 and she normally wears a 6 or 6.5 depending in regular shoes and Boots! and I know this is the way you usually order UGG's so they fit right barefoot! But these have wooden Clog soles, so are they full lined like hers and get a 9.5 or 10 or do we get them in a 11 and then are they going to be to BIG or just right! I just wish Nordies had them to try on IRL! This really tough and then which Color???? What do you think?? TTYS, Matt

Kathy Ann! I just LOVE you and your Hubby's Style! You Guys are Totally AWESOME and to the SOURPUSSES out there...... I say it time for us to make them feel UNCOMFORTABLE! And really why should we care what they think or say or even waste our time listening to there NARROW MINDED VIEWS any ways!

Hi Lindsey! You Know the fun thing is at first I was concerned when I became a BC that I would Stop being me! But then what I realized was that God Created me as the unique person that I am! And that real that is what God wanted me to be! So when some over self righteous person ask me about what I wear.... I just simply remind him that Actually in the Bible that Adam and Eve were NAKED until they ate the fruit from the tree! At which point they became aware that they were NAKED and covered themselves in Fig Leaves in total shame! So Originally God had no use for any clothes any ways. So How can any clothes be more Gender correct than any others? I mean like are some Fig Leaves more Male Correct than Female? This usually shuts them all up and really how is it any of their business any ways how I prefer to dress! You might say I'm a little bit of a RADICAL but like I say that how God made me! And Actually 99% of the folks I know really like me for me the way I am! The rest I just call them Silly, Silly, Wabbits! LOL!

Hi Kathy Ann! Me and the wife are both Born Again Christians and Like you say, "Who are we to limit the mechanism the Almighty uses to bring about life?" We totally Totally Agree with you on that one! And Yes I totally understand what you are saying about SOURPUSSES! Like I say and ask them, " Why? And How Is my choice footwear harming you or are you just jealous that I wear it so well and you really secretly wish your Husband could or would wear them also?" I like to call these Narrow Minded Folks..... Silly Wabbits! And Yes they do miss out on so much fun in life!

Hi Melissa! Great Video it does explain Evolution Very Short and Sweet! And Yes you are Quite right that most people DO NOT UNDERSTAND the difference! Hi Lindsey! That is ONE AWESOME BEER Comercial! In fact I tink that has to be one the best one's I have ever seen! :) BTW This is a Great Post and I'm really going to have to think about what would be a AWESOME Looking Symbol for all of us!

Hi Evan! I TOTALLY AGGREE! That is the Problem with white socks with Stripes. They just look strange unless your playing Basketball or Track or Etc... with shorts! So my answer is always either go barefoot or the other extreme and wear totally CRAZY Radical Socks! :} BTW Lindsey also has a pair of those JC Ivka Thigh High Boots as well! :] And one last bite of news, The Jeffrey Campbell Foxy Fab Stars Stripes that I wanted for the 4th of July I got yesterday and returned Yesterday! :( http://www.solestruck.com/jeffrey-campbell-foxy-fab-stars-and-stripes/index.html# They were way to big, I would say the 11 was at least a size 12. But the deal breaker for me was they were totally faded out in the colors as compared to the Pictures at Solestruck!
Hi Lindsey! I feel so Honored that you post my pictures in your Clog Blog! I know that most of what I wear is not really true clogs but at least some of the Jeffrey Campbells are like close cousins to them! LOL! Don't fret all! I am doing some very serious looking for some TRUE CLOG Boots to get! A few Weeks back I thought I had them with a pair of Hasbeen's but alas they were one of those pairs that were size 11 or 41 but really fit like a 9 or 39! To much to dare to stretch them to get them to fit and then the soles would have been to small. Like I say I hate when that happens! But I will say I did get a wild and crazy pair for the 4th of July that just came into Solestruck and well I get them this Thursday! http://www.solestruck.com/jeffrey-campbell-foxy-fab-stars-and-stripes/index.html?utm_source=solestruck&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=perfect%2Bfit# I will try and send Lindsey some Quick Photo's of them when I get them. Now that you did post those picture's I going to post the rest of them on my not so AWESOME Blog/ Photo reference site! http://weallneedafryeday.blogspot.com/ I really wish I could write like you you are SOOOO Good at this! :) :) :) So if any one wants to see the rest of the Crazy Pictures, they are posted their or soon will be! But like I say I will always give Lindsey first chance if she wants to post them! I did have another "Matt" moment this week at our Mall! We were going to Sears to pick my wife's New Glasses and I was wearing those same Rainbow Socks and Black Levi Shorts and a Black Harley Shirt but i had my Black Patent Jeffrey Campbell Copen's on instead. Any ways there was a group of 16~18ish Girls waiting out in the Store entrance and i could tell they noticed my LOOK! So I smiled as we walked past them and went and got my wife's glasses. On the way out they were still there and I saw they were smiling back at us. One of them asked Bravely, "where did you get those AWESOME SHOES and Socks! So I told them and we Chatted for a bit and one finally asked me, "Aren't you worried what someone might say?" I told her Nah, I just LOVE Being me more than what any could ever say! Any ways They all Loved the Look! So like I always say, What really make the difference is having confidence in what you do in everything in life. And yes the wife and I have oh way to much fun all the time! TTYS, Matt

Hi Lindsey!, LOVE! LOVE! LOVE! LOVE! LOVE! LOVE! LOVE! Those Boots! The Patent Leather and the Suede! Oh My! I would have bought them as well in a heart beat! And as always there is alway that dreaded send them Back disappointment! And like you say there are so many of those that you so wish you could have and wear but are just that wee bit to small and do I dare try and stretch a size 40 to a 41! As far as Stretching Shoes and Boots I do it all the time if I need to but there are limits. And what I have found is a lot of the higher end designers seem to run there footwear small. What I also learned is if you really want them to fit right even if they are your size you need to have these tools and good ones to do it with. I have made some of my stretchers and others I have bought and I also make my own stretching solution! What I really LOVE is, it is just so nice to do this to a new pair of Shoes or Boots so the a Comfy the first time you really wear them out for the evening, I hate sore feet. Once you do it you will always want them all to fit correctly! TTYS, Matt

Hi Kathy Ann! Sorry for the late reply but we were out of town! And then my Internet was down this morning! Any How Yes we are So Lucky to Lindsey and her great Passion for Clogs and this Blog She is just INCREDIBLE! As far as AWESOME wives, goes...... Well I know of 2... You and my wife! WOW! I wonder what your GF would say if she meet me! I think it's so funny that she says the "GAY" word and yet your Hubby and I both have a wonderful LOVING wife and are very heterosexual! I LOVE people like her like I say deep down inside she is most likely jealous of what you 2 have together! And that is why she says what she does! Lindsey, you are so AWESOME! And I really mean that! :) :) :) And you are so Spot on in what you say! The reason they complain about clothes and shoes and the way we dress is it is a whole lot easier than doing anything else! TTYS, Matt
Thanks Lindsey! Thats what I wanted to hear! So what to get??????? I really want to get me and the wife a matching pair of one of these 3 styles! but which one! Uggs Kaylee's But Which Color???? And which material Suede or Leather???? Jeffrey Campbell ELEVATOR FUR Tiger Stripe's Oh How I LoVE ANIMAL Prints! http://www.solestruck.com/jeffrey-campbell-elevator-fur-orange-black/index.html Jeffrey Campbell El Carmen in Stars & Stripes These would be Oh So Haute for the 4th Of July don't you think! http://www.shopakira.com/products/Jeffrey-Campbell-El-Carmen-in-Stars-%26-Stripes.html Oh this is SOOOOOOOOOOOO Hard to decide!!!!! Please Help!!!!!!

In fact for summer I do very something similar! LOL! A Harley Shirt, Black Levi Shorts, Those AWESOME Socks, and to finish it all off either my Jeffrey Campbell Black Patent Copen's or My Jeffrey Campbell Black Snake 99's or The pair you haven't seen yet My Jeffrey Campbell Zebra Pony Hair Tick's! And we all know that I'm kind of Shy and don't want to attract any attention........ Ok so my nose might be growing but Is this not oh so much fun....... WHOA! Was that a Bolt of Lightning! I Love living on the edge! TTYS, Matt
Hi Lindsey! So what size did you order the UGG's Kaylees in a 12 or a 11? I showed them to the wife and she LOVED them! I think we are going to get matching pairs! I'm thinking that if they run like most UGGs then they should be True to sise. I was wondering what your thoughts were on that and did you get the suede or the leather? Decisions, Choices, and Clogs OH MY! Hi Kathy Ann! Oh the Calamari sounds so YUMMY! And yes IKWYM about places that ruin it with thick batter or OVER COOK IT and turn it in to RUBBER! As Far as the UGG Kaylees go Are they AWESOME or what! Does Lindsey find the Cool Stuff or what! I think I would say give them a try and like Lindsey said, we can always take them back! I think that we all need these! I would get Hubby the 12's and you should get yours in your regular size 8 If i remember right! I think I'll order ours tonight I just wanted to see what size Lindsey got! And I got to go to work right now. :( Oh I did find the link I had for this site that seems to have a quite a QUALITY non Fetish shoes in Larger women's sizes! http://www.barefoottess.com/ I know that quite a few girls from over on "The Purse Forum" recommend them very favorably! Talk to You all later tonight! Matt
Hi Lindsey! AWESOME! I told you we shop at a lot of the same places! I LOVE their Rainbow Toe Socks! In fact i have 3 pairs of those alone not to mention the other.....! LOL! But I actually found them when I was in search of Toe Socks! And I Love the fact that it is a small Family run Business! TTYS, Matt
Oh and Speaking of Tights and Socks.... I have to post this site... This is where I buy lots of my CRAZY Socks from and they sell some of the best Quality ones I have found! So I thought I would share this with you all! http://www.sockdreams.com/products/sock-collections/rainbows/ Great place! And I highly recommend them! TTYS, Matt
Hi Kathy! OH MY! That is the Sweetest Story I've read in a LONG Time! :) I so wish I was there to see it all! I can just Imagine the AWE of the Parents and the total curiosity and innocents of the Toddler's! Aren't Kids AWESOME or what! And I can just see in my mind your Precious Daughter PROUDLY showing off her Mom's Art work! It would make my heart melt! :) :) And you are so right they all will always remember you for the rest of their life! Your poor Hubby never had a chance to compete! LOL! Like I say, You just made me smile from ear to ear! :) But I have to ask how was the Calamari? I sounds like the perfect night! Oh How much Better can it Get! And yes those Opaque tights and the Clogs in that last picture are AWESOME! TTYS, Matt
I totally Love those Blue Knee High Boots as well! But the sad thing is I can confirm that the Hasbeen's Boots RUN WAY SMALL! Lindsey that's why I was wondering if you had ever tried any on so Bad! The other week I Got a pair of 41/ 11's from Amazon and There is NO WAY my true to size Size 41 foot was ever going to fit in these Boots! Now Like i have said before I can at times i can even wear some 10's in some Brands but these are like I was trying to put on a size 9! There was No way I could have gotten these on and if I would have I would have, I would have had to cut them off and they were oh so way too cool looking in the red leather! http://www.amazon.com/Hasbeens-Knee-High-Boot-Knee-High/dp/B004L9M5UO/ref=sr_1_5?s=shoes&ie=UTF8&qid=1308004108&sr=1-5 So what I figure is I would need a size 43 which means yet another shoe sizing to keep track of! I just wish everybody could just agree on ONE SET OF SIZES! So yes I want a pair badly but not till we get this sizing figured out and if they will ever make them in our size! Sorry Lindsey but I think you and I are out of Luck with these! :( TTYS, Matt
Hi Kathy! You and your Hubby will look AWESOME wearing them together! It really is a lot of fun! In fact I half a mind to buy the wife and I the same pair of them as well! Or..... Maybe the Orange and Black ones!!!! Or maybe these? http://www.shopakira.com/products/Jeffrey-Campbell-El-Carmen-in-Stars-%26-Stripes.html SO MANY TO CHOOSE FROM!!!! And yes Kathy and your Hubby will ROCK the folks from Podunk tonight! Trust me I know lots of them they live all around me here! That's why I have so much fun Living here! And your Daughter how AWESOME! I LOVE Calamari! The best I ever ate was down on the Baja on a surfing trip during the 80's! (It is actually where they catch most of the Humboldt Squid that most restaurants use!) Nothing like freshly caught and fried or grilled and some Yellow Fin Tuna on the grill with it! On the beach with perfect waves at sunset and Dos Exes Beer! Ok Now I made myself want some! TTYS, Matt
