Clogs may be the preferred footwear of nurses, chefs, and dancing milkmaids, but this season, they're getting a decidedly designer update. Thanks to the smart styling choices of Miuccia Prada, Karl Lagerfeld, and Marc Jacobs, these traditional Dutch soles are transformed with sturdy platform heels, pretty satin microprints, and metal studs on the side. The result of all this tinkering is a totally fresh and chic look. And while some of our favorite fashion all-stars¬--such as Alexa Chung, seen here in the much-buzzed-about Chanel pair¬--are already rocking these fresh-off-the-catwalk clogs, we thought we would shine a light on the six most sure-footed examples of this spring must-have in today's Go Buy Now story!
1. Miu Miu Satin Daisy-Print Clog ($495)
The shoes in the Miu Miu S/S 10 show were an editor-favorite, and for good reason. The exaggerated heel and range of sweet patterns such as sparrows, cats, and dogs are certainly dramatic and darling. While every printed pair is desirable, we particularly fell hard and fast for these slip-on clogs. Not only do they feature a cheeky daisy print, but the wooden platform and oversized studs add to the fashion-forward-feel of these covetable clogs!
2. No.6 Store T-Strap Clog ($230)
We couldn't do this GBN story without mentioning the lovely ladies at No. 6, who have been turning out clog-boots for a few seasons now. Though their ankle boot version is Michelle Williams' go-to errand-running pick, we think this denim t-strap style is perfect for a sunny spring afternoon and will go with everything in your closet!
3. Stuart Weitzman Studclog ($345)
With warm weather around the corner, we wanted to feature a style that had an open toe for those of you who love to show off a perfect pedicure! The snakeskin surface adds a sophisticated and luxurious touch to these slip-ons making them an absolutely ideal option for an afternoon picnic in the park or your favorite outdoor concert.
4. Jeffrey Campbell Charli Clog ($135)
If you're wild for the Karl Lagerfeld-designed clogs seen on the Chanel runway, then you simply must consider these black leather kicks from Jeffrey Campbell (or the equally divine tan pair)! These look-a-like lovelies bear a striking resemblance to the designer version, but they have the original beat in the price department!
5. Opening Ceremony W19 Ankle Boot Clog ($520)
Opening Ceremony is once again catering to its fashion-savvy urbane clientele with these red ankle-boot clogs. This pair is the perfect marriage of traditional clogs and grunge-y Doc Martens. We can totally imagine Chloe Sevigny or Kirsten Dunst pairing them with a flirty floral dress for spring!
6. Pedro Garcia Fiona Taffy Eden Calf Clog ($560)
As we've previously mentioned, nude tones are all the rage for the transitional season. Be sure to get a head start on this subdued style with these Pedro Garcia platform mary-janes in a lovely ecru shade. The studding on the side is reminiscent of the Chanel clogs, and the patent leather will definitely help you make a delightful and whimsically chic statement.¬--KM
