This year we learned that clogs are more than Crocs

Perhaps an ostrich that has kept his head buried in the sand for the past few months hasn’t heard the news.

Clogs, originally restricted to soccer moms, chefs, and inhabitants of Holland, have somehow sauntered their way onto the runway.

In fact, they’ve become one of the hottest items this spring. We saw them on the runways this fall, and if they’re good enough for Karl Lagerfeld, they’re good enough for us. Indeed the Chanel Spring/Summer 2010 show featured models clonking out in the coveted shoe. It confirmed the fashion world’s confused questioning at the matter; summer 2010 is the summer of clogs.

The most ubiquitous type of this species is the slip-on with a chunky wooden heel. But why not try one of Vera Wang’s biker chick inspired clog for Lavender Label.

Or perhaps the high topped combat boot clog of Top Shop? Or perhaps one by the likes of Jeffery Campbell (sold out on the internet), Miu Miu, Stuart Weitzman or Opening Ceremony?

The choices are infinite; but the supply isn’t. And with that, we’d like to welcome the clog to our radar.
