Clogs are hilarious shoes. There has never once been, in the history of ever, a clog that was sleek. A clog that was polished. A clog that was, by all conventional standards of dress, really damn cool. But in today’s fashion, being uncool is cooler than being actually cool. And with that ideal comes the clog (or a mule, or a close-toed sandal—all siblings). They’re functional, they’re comfortable—they’re everything fashion used to tell us a shoe shouldn’t be. We say: Fashion rules be damned. Clogs are the chunky dad shoe of summer. Stock up now.
Because you can’t beat a classic.
The chunkiness of a Birkenstock is a staple, but these are a little narrower, if that’s what you need in a shoe.
These barley count as clogs (the back portion folds down underfoot, if desired) but it doesn’t matter. Have you worn them to the grocery store on a Saturday morning yet? It will change you.
Clogs are defined by the same thing this Doc is: kind of a shoe, kind of a sandal. All kinds of good.
