There are so many different styles of clogs on the market. From trendy to traditional and everything in between! Selecting and buying the right pair can be confusing. There are many factors to look at to make sure you are getting the right shoe for your needs. It is not always about looks.

If you need some help with your clog purchase, here are some tips that can help you make the right choice.

  1. Choose a Heel – Decide if you want a low, medium or high-heel style. Take into consideration on how you will be mainly wearing them. For example, if you plan on wearing them to work or for long hours of the day, select low or medium heels. If are going to be wearing them for night’s out, by all means, select a pair of high-heels.
  2. Consider Fabrication – If you want them to last for many years, we suggest selecting a good pair of genuine leather or suede clogs. If you are looking to only own them for 1-2 seasons, go for a canvas or fabric, velvet, or faux leather fabrication. In addition, some fabrications require that you treatment with leather conditioners and cleaners to keep them looking nice. That will be an added expense but well worth your efforts.
  3. Classic or Trendy – If you select a classic style, they will always be in-style and can be worn for many years and with just about everything in your wardrobe. If you go for a hot and trendy style; well, we all know that trends come and go quickly. In addition, trendy styles may have limited possibilities when working with items you already own in your wardrobe.
  4. Construction Style – Decide if you want an open-toe, closed-toe, open-back, closed-back, lace-up, slip-on, etc. type of style. That’s right ladies, these days clogs come in all different kinds of styles and you need to decide which style will work the best with the shape and size of your foot. In addition, the construction style will also depend on where you live and what season of the year you plan on wearing your new shoes! If you live in very cold and/or wet climates, you will probably want to avoid open-toe and open-back styles during the cold winter season.

Assess your needs when shopping for your perfect clog style. This list will give you something to think about so you can make the right choice for your needs.

    • Hi, Robert!

      If you need a closed back clog, go with the Professional or Van Gogh. In the open back clogs, I recommend the Traditional, Rembrandt, or Monet.
