Clogs in fact are topping all lists of 2021 Spring Fashion Trends. Perhaps you're one of many who have always seen clogs around but wondered what these unique shoes are about. In fact you find yourself seeing a pair and wondering, 'What's the deal with clogs?'.
‘The ancient Romans wore them in their bathhouses, and the Japanese fashioned Geta shoes—the elevated clog and flip-flop hybrids, seen in eighteenth-century woodcuts and contemporary street-style photographs. European farmers, including the Dutch and the English, favored closed-toe clogs for their protective powers in difficult working conditions.
The shoe came to prominence in America during the Depression and the Second World War, when leather was scarce. Boho-chic crowds of the early nineteen-seventies adopted the clog. The new iteration of the shoe had a leather upper and, often, an exaggerated heel that paired to marvellous effect with hot pants.’
