hasbeens-clogs

Personally, for me, I’ve come to terms with the fact that I’ll never wear clogs – I can’t figure out how to walk in them – but I’ve never been able to decide if I love them or hate them.

It’s a little like Birkenstocks… When tourists wear them with shorts, they’re the ugliest (Since Seth Meyers made fun of them at the CFDA , okay, I thought I’d aloow myself to do the same;-), but on a super awesome girl with super awesome style, sometimes I’m surprised by the coolitude that can come from those darn clogs.

So what do we think here? We love ‘em or hate ‘em?

    Oooh, I used to have a pair of great, comfortable clogs in highschool, I wish I had held on to them. I’d wear them with my summer maxi dresses.

    Enjoy your weekend and your award lovely! :)

    Elles sont superbes ! Mais je dois avouer qu’on faut avoir une vrai confiance en soi et son style pour quelles aient l’air mode. on peut s’inspirer de celles que Chanel avait fait pour l’été 2010 je crois !

    It’s exactly as you wrote it: it depends on who’s wearing them. But for me clogs are a definite ‘no’.

  • andrea June, 8 2012, 9:03 / Reply

    it really depends on the person wearing them. If the person is cool, they are cool. But if they’re not cool, they’re not. Personally, I wore them in the late 60s with my dragging on the ground elephant bells as part of my hippie persona at that time, so I don’t want to revisit that. It won’t look cool or ironic, just like a woman stuck in a time warp. : )

    Ha moi et les Birkenstocks c’est une belle histoire. Je trouvais ça aussi pas terrible, vieux. Ma mère et mon grand-père en porte. Et puis j’ai testé. Je les porte tous les jours hivers comme été. En pantoufles ou en sandales. J’adore ! Avec un jean slim et même un blazer. Bises Garance ;)

    Love ‘em! Clogs are feel-good shoes to me. I have always worn them at one time or another since childhood. Now it depends on my mood. Over the years, I have had an equal number of people come up to me to say: “yay”, “nay” (shrug my shoulders to both). Ultimately, clogs are more personal expression and less fashion statement. Mmmh, is there a difference?

  • ncf21 June, 8 2012, 9:11 / Reply

    J’en ai porté pendant deux ans quasiment tous les jours quand j’étais ado (en été, en hiver avec des chaussettes). Je ne sais pas comment j’ai fait, j’allais même aux concerts avec! Par nostalgie j’ai racheté des Swedish Hasbeens un peu comme celles de la photo il y a quelques années, je les ai mises environ deux fois, dont une aux Buttes-Chaumont où j’ai failli mourir (ampoules+entorses sur le terrain en pente). Je les ai revendues sur Ebay. No regrets.

    J’aime l’idée de marcher sur du bois et l’esprit scandinave. Par contre je ne suis pas sure de la version haut talon. Avec robe longue paysanne je préfère le sabot classique.

  • MdG June, 8 2012, 9:23 / Reply

    Alors, les sabots épais comme ça, je dis non. En tout cas sur moi, après sur des filles toutes fines avec de longues jambes sublimes, ça peut être simpa avec un jean, un haut décontracté.
    Moi, ce que j’adore par contre c’est les sabots genre ceux de chez scholl (http://www.sarenza.com/scholl-band-flat-s149-p0000030452?ectrans=1) , pas forcément pour le côté esthétique, mais surtout pour les souvenirs que ça réveille en moi. Les étés passés sur la plage, en Italie. A peine arrivées en Italies, après environ 15 heures passées dans la voiture avec mon père, ma mère, mon frère et ma soeur, avec ma mère la première chose qu’on faisait c’était aller dans le magasin de chaussures juste à côté de notre hôtel pour acheter ces sabots. Un peu une tradition de famille. Et la satisfaction de les enfiler tout de suite et d’entendre le clac clac clac alors qu’on marchait les quelques centaines de mètres jusquà la plage.
    Bon, c’est décidé, cet été j’en achète une paire :)

    I believe they can look great with a proper outfit (think bootcut lightblue jeans), but can be horrendous at the same time when the outfit isn´t styled correct. I have decided they are not for me either, but that has more to do with the shape of hasbeens, bit the clog itself (after all, I am from Holland) xoxo

    Oh Garance please please please promise me to not ever, ever, ever again compare clogs with Birkenstock.

    Birkenstock is the pinacle of shoes, the most amazing thing invented after deodorant, my second skin during the summer. I LOVE THEM!!! I can hike for hours, travel, drive, dance, even sleep in those!

    As for clogs, hummm, what can I say, they’re comfy and make this nice sound (hlap-hloup-hlap-hloup) but all in all, they bring connotations to me which are not politically correct enough to be mentioned in your lovely blog :-)

    By the way, I loved your dress at the awards! Congrats once more!

    I personally looove Birkenstocks!! I have two pairs, first ones are white, designed a bit different then that usual ones, and second ones are mint, for this summer! They are super comfortable and they can also give a chic look to some elegant dress you would usually always whear with high heels!

  • Laure June, 8 2012, 9:53 / Reply

    I hated them until I bought my first pair.
    And then I started wearing them when I wanted to add a quirky touch to my outfits. They add the unexpected feeling of not being too dressed up or perfect. ‘What should I wear today? I don’t want to be predictable … Aha! I ‘ll put my clogs on!’
    And I love the sound they make! Because of this they make me feel different for sure. And for the way they fit on the feet. Plus, with this noise they make you can’t go unnoticed haha!
    Kisses!

    chere garance-

    i read your blog faithfully, but have never commented; when i clicked on this morning, and saw this foto with the attached text, i felt i had to. i LOVE clogs. i have since i was about 8 years old. i have multiple pairs; high, low, wedge, sandals, boots…their combination of ruggedness, hand made rough-hewn design aspects, and their ability to easily agree with a casual outfit, while making one feel slightly more dressed and sexy are what i adore (and they last forever! and are comfortable!). sometimes i am sad they have become so popular. of course, they are not for everyone, nor do they flatter every leg. they are also a little noisy. BUT, i am faithful; when i need a shoe fix, and all other options fail, i head for the clogs.

    I have to say that I love them. I love the staples and the height and the hippie/casual flair they impart.

  • Jacqueline Christina June, 8 2012, 10:00 / Reply

    Funny – I’ve been wrestling with whether or not to buy (replace) a simple pair of Dansko clogs. I had a simple black pair for years. And I was always shocked when fairly stylish people or fashion forward folks would complement me on them. I wore them with more of my bohemian’ish outfits or if I was going for a modern – industrial – Swedish time themed outfit. I wore them out – threw them away and have yet to replace them and I’m wrestling with wear (play on words) they fit in my wardrobe right now. I follow your blog and find that your influence over my fashion decisions weighs in more and more (because I love your style…I adore your perspective…and it always makes sense!) It would be so much easier if you would just say “yay” or “nay” on the topic of clogs and then I could move on. Please, make the decision for me this time. Strange how so much agonizing over a simple pair of shoes is such a big decision for me right now (considering I usually don’t blink an eye at buying shoes).

    et bien moi j’ai des birkenstock slim rose miami que je porte quand je vais a la plage, elles passent super bien car elles sont dites “slim” donc moins “grosses godasses” que les anciennes et la couleur est super (ils ont fait de gros progres ^^)…et pour celles qui comme moi ne peuvent pas porter des tongs cause petit grain de beauté entre les orteils, et bien je te dirai que c’est une bonne alternative :)

    ..les sabots de couleurs et plats me rappellent mon enfance aussi
    et puis comme on dit, c’est la tenue que tu met avec qui rend ca chouette ou beurk

    sinon le reste du temps je suis en ballerines..et j’en ai une grosse collec mais par 30° et a la plage..il fait un poil chaud ;)

    Dear Garance,

    I”m so happy you bring this up. I have a love (the look), hate (the discomfort) relationship with clogs. I see girls who wear them casually around town and it adds to their casual non-chalant style of “I don’t care what I look like but I was born with IT so I always look good.” But, I wasn’t born with “it” and I for sure don’t know how to walk with clogs so I’m starting to think I’ll never wear them either. But every time I see a girl in cute clogs, I still dream…

    PS Congrats to you and Scott for the CFDA awart. Just like you wrote about Leila Bekhti and how you feel proud… so I feel about your accomplishment. Brava! Keep on shining.

    the first time I saw a Birkenstock I wanted to puke…but then fell in love with them over a summer in Amsterdam, good for certain looks, same goes for clogs, but I have been accused of being crunchy! Both are the opposite of what I really hate for daytime, which is the Jersey cougar look of stilettos or sky high platforms. Anyway, love your site Garance!

    For me, I wear Birkenstocks in New York as an homage to my native Northwest home in Spokane, Washington. There, many of the girls wear sporty sandals with dresses. When I wear them in the city, I’ll run into New Yorkers who also lived in the Northwest and they become a conversation piece. But I don’t know about clogs. Those might be a stretch for me.

    Love!!! I’m a huge believer in clogs. I’m a big fan of most wooden sole shoes on a whole and have a bit of a collection. I treat them almost like trainers, normally wearing them with jeans or trousers. The cobbler that care of my shoes adds a thick outer sole and padding on the inside for comfort.

    Congratulations to you and Scott, Garance your magnificent illustrations have inspired me to start drawing again.

    Love clogs, especially these high heeled ones from Hasbeens. Hate Birkenstocks, Uggs, and especially Crocs (which are so popular here in Colorado) . I have this pictured shoe in black, but it is not as comfortable as I imagined it would be. Too bad. So I don’t wear it a lot…but I still love the style. I love the real wood in it and the visible staples. It is like wearable art.

    I have a pair of light blue Swedish Hasbeens sandals, and they are great. They don’t look like glogs, which I’m not fond of, but they’re just a modern version of the old fashioned clogs and I love them. Just check them on SJP, she has the high heel version in several colors!

    Garance, I am a daily fan on both your and Scott’s blog, but rarely comment… this one, however, I must… CLOGS: These hefty shoes are a must in many parts of the world. I live in a resort town (Park City, Sundance Film Fest … ) and clogs are the way to go. They are great in snow, you can slip them off before entering a home, and some brands simply form to your feet … almost like slippers. In addition, congratulations! XO C

    I had a pair just like these, with tooled decoration and some color, I remember. It was 1974, or thereabouts. You had to be careful not to turn your ankle, and your jeans were flared over the clogs. Just gripping them with your toes was a workout. Would not want to try it today, I am way too “mature”.

    I’m from Sweden, from where clogs originate (Swedish hasbeens) and I simply cannot understand the hype around them… They are super uncomfortable, slip off constantly and really? they’re not all that pretty… I suppose it (as always) lies in the attitude of the wearer, anything will look great if worn with the proper mix of self confidence and attitude!!

    Moi j’adore les “Softclox” qui ont une sorte de charnière ce qui fait que c’est très confortable à marcher avec. J’aime le bruit que font les sabots en marchant sur le trottoir.

  • Fancy French Cologne June, 8 2012, 2:08 / Reply

    Yes, only on the right girl! Personally, I like them best when they look more rock ‘n roll with studs along the sides rather than the staples. In that case, they remind of a shoe a beyond cool tattoo artist (think Kat Von D) would wear :)

    Hi Garance!
    In the relaxed northern hemisphere the Swedish hasbeens clogs have been quite popular for some years already and those of my friends who actually have them have referred to the comfortability of walking in them. I personally don’t like the “heavy” look but at least in Finland people use them in the summer time.
    So hate for the look, love for the comfort!

    :)

    Impossible à refourguer car, à voir dans mon entourage et sur le web, tout le monde trouve les sabots hideux. Mon cerveau se creuse actuellement les méninges pour leur redonner une quelconque nouvelle vie un tant soit peu utile…

    I love them! But I have to be really picky about style and color so that they totally, capital T, suit me. Only open back clogs in brown suede with a real wood heel worn with an outfit that plays up my legs and waist. Worn any other way and I look like a short person trying to look tall.

    I agree, Garance, it takes some style finesse to make clogs look great. Those are super cute! (And I’m not a clogs-girl myself.) I don’t like when the heel is shorter than these in the picture. I think they look really frumpy when they have small heels. The higher the heel, the sexier the clog (isn’t that the case with most shoes?).

    Personally I love them, at least the ones that are just a tad more modern, slimmer lines, maybe a higher heel… Works really well with rolled up/cut off (just above the ankle) jeans or chinos and a big white men’s shirt. (And then I slap on a lot of red lipstick and go for a very feminine small clutch, love the contrasts!) I think I’ve always found clogs cool because my very fashionable mum wore them a lot when I was a kid!

    At least these have a cute heel. In the NW, women wear clogs that look like bedroom slippers. Hate them. Or Crocs – an even worse version of the clog. Even the word “CLOG” is ugly.

    Nope. I wear clogs to run down the driveway to get the mail but have never worn them out . Never owned birkenstocks or crocs. But some people can wear a sack and look great…just not me. I have tiny feet too, big bulky shoes make me look footless.

    C’est moche et inconfortable, ne surtout pas céder à cette tendance qui fait le pied lourd et rustique (ne pas oublier que la mode, si au départ n’est que pour les filles “tendance”, se démocratise et touche un plus large public, alors non au sabot qui n’arrangera pas les looks moyens!)
    Non vraiment, voilà bien un drôle de retour sur le devant de la scène!

    I have a soft spot in my heart for clogs. When I was in elementary school I would wear my mother’s clogs from the seventies–smaller heel but in a beautiful camel colored leather. (and yes, I had freakishly large feet as a child.) But would I wear them again? Some things are better left to happy memories…

  • Ulrika June, 9 2012, 1:32 / Reply

    These were the shoes I and my friends ran around in when we were kids, although at that time a more basic model. Then they disappeared, to reappear again a few years ago. More stylish than way back, but reminding me of happy childhood summer days. So what did I do? Got myself some pairs, of course, since they now come in a multitude of models, heels, colors. Difficult to walk in? Maybe, if you were not born Swedish, but more easy than ordinary heels!

    They’re not the most attractive shoe. I presume that you’d have to walk a certain way to prevent them from slipping off of your feet, similar to mules. Of course, having never worn a pair, that’s only a presumption.

    As a Swede who has been wearing clogs since childhood, all I can say is: clogs are not supposed to be high-heels! The clogs in the picture are not real clogs, they are fashion-whore clogs. This is what clogs should look like:

    No wonder yours are difficult to walk in, a good pair of clogs should be as good to the foot as any Birkenstock. I think of these shoes as equivalents. And they are as stylish as you want them to be, just like Birkenstocks. It´s all about attitude.

    LOVE them! Own several pairs – I wear then all winter working from home with cozy socks – they are so comfy. I have a couple pairs of Hasbeens too – they are not comfy, but cute with wide leg jeans and striped top…. chic without the “HEY! Look at me” vibe….

    I have this pair sitting under my bed. Never wore them, but love the idea of looking forward to wearing them one day. I can see how they would look great with quite a few things. Besides, I have fond memories of wearing clogs as a child. And they are good memories. I am surprised by how strongly people feel about clogs. As far as bad footwear is concerned, I can think of a lot worse than clogs and Birkenstocks. Like the Toms that everybody seems to favor and rave about nowadays.

    I’ve always loved them. wore them when I was 14 and again at around 28. I’d still wear them, but somehow think that the time for me and clogs is over. I still admire them when I see them on other people though. Saying that, does anyone remember how much it hurts when you kick your ankle with them. (which is all the time!) OW!!

    Love them. I own a navy blue pair, high-ish heel like the ones in your picture, but I prefer the finish on mine (smaller tacks). They are comfortable, but like all heels not ideal to walk for miles although they are super comfy if I have to stand around a lot, contrary to other heels. I wear them with straight jeans and simple shirts. Casual, fresh. I like that they elongate me without giving a ‘dressy high heels’ look. I really like the ‘strappy sandals’ version on other people but not on me as I have a most unfortunate case of ‘cankles’ and straps near the ankle are one of my biggest no-no’s .

    Clogs became really trendy in Melbourne about two years ago. A local designer Lisa Gorman started stocking them in her Gorman stores and the following year every girl in Fitzroy owned a pair. It was really popular to wear them with black tights or colourful woollen socks. They were great because girl’s often wore them to create quite cute and quirky outfits that were a colourful contrast to the ageless Melbourne black. The height of their popularity has passed now – many have moved onto platform sandals!

    J’aime certaines. Je n’aime pas celles qui sont ouvertes à l’arrière, sans sangle, puisqu’elles paraîssent (et sont) inconfortables. Aussi, il faut qu’il y ait une arche légèrement marquée, sinon je trouve que ça fait trop lourd. Aussi, le talon ne doit pas être trop haut car ça fait vulgaire! No 6 en fait de jolies (surtout celles de type sandale) et j’aime bien les ‘peeptoe high’ de swedish hasbeens.

    tout dépend de la marque (du suédois sinon rien) et ce qu’on en fait.
    Les Swedish que tu montres sont super sympas avec un jeans boots cut qui retombe au dos du sabot, sur le sabot. Parce que le problème du sabot, c’est ce déséquilibre entre l’avant très couvert et l’arrière très ouvert. Portés ainsi, avec un jeans, ces Swedish sont extra, on dirait que l’on porte des bottines avec semelles en bois. Et les traditionnels sabots suédois, rouges par exemple, portés avec un micro short, c’est aussi très sympa l’été (bon, à condition d’etre bien foutue, hein…). mais toi, toutes ces options devraient très bien t’aller… Et les Swedish sont très marchables, bizarre que tu n’arrives pas à marcher avec…(d’autant que j’ai vu que tu avais des plateformes à semelle rigide et c’est un peu pareil…)

    I dislike them for sure – they can easily look wrong and cheap but maybe a selected few can rock ‘em, well done to them! But usually it’s because it is the actual person and their style that I adore :-)

    I love them in any way and almost in any shape since 1986. That’s was the year I get my first pair (from Sweden) when I was living in Cuba. And the funny thing was that nobody knew were or how to get it or what was the meaningless having one. And either understand what the sound comes from. They sound a lot sometimes. But I can’t resist me to the fact that they are so wearable with jeans, long or short skirt and hippies dresses in the summer or at vacations.

    Ps: Itsn’t so difficult to walk with clogs. It’s a matter of training at home if you don’t have woods flooring and you neighbors would be disturb that you walk at home and make some noise. Now that I’m living in Sweden I haven’ t some of them at all actually ( that’s ironic). But I ‘m going to get those from Hasbeens.
