Yesterday’s mention of Dutch clogs was all about April Fool’s fun, but there is actually a real resurgence of the style happening at the moment. Inspired by the Spring 2010 Chanel Show, high heeled clogs are trending. It’s such fun to see things filter down from catwalk to retail level in such a short space of time (remember this post?). Wooden soles, leather and suede uppers, studded trims, and a platform heel to boot. Casual, earthy and very 70’s.
I saw a few high heeled clogs in action during our recent trip to Europe, but I haven’t yet formulated an opinion on the look. My initial impression is that they won’t work for me because they’re just too high and my feet slip out of clog styled shoes. Also, their 70’s bohemian vibe is not my style. But clogs were on the Chanel runway show, so out of my sheer passion for Chanel, I’ll keep my eye on the trend. Who knows how clogs will continue to be interpreted as the season unfolds.
I’m sure pretty sure high heeled clogs can be worn with style. What’s your take on the look? Is this something you would wear, or could appreciate on others?
