The "Ugly" Shoes You Used to Make Fun of Are Officially Back

Brace yourself because the shoe trend that is "officially back" is one either you used to love or you used to hate. The trend we want to draw all of our attention to right now is clogs. It's been quite some time since the chunky wooden shoes have had a moment in the spotlight, but after careful observation, it's been made clear that the shoe style is undoubtedly cool again. Beyond designers like Jacquemus coming out with fresh-feeling versions, we are also seeing a rise in the cow-print clog trend. Consider this story your official report on both trending styles because we love each equally. 

Since clogs have the stereotype of being clunky and "ugly," we wanted to prove to you that this time around, they are actually pretty chic, and the 19 pairs ahead are here to prove it to you. With fall's cool temperatures right around the corner, you're going to have to put away all of your strappy kitten heels and exchange them for something a bit more seasonally appropriate. This year, we encourage you to swap them for cute clogs. Additionally, if you constantly find yourself a bit sick of all your ankle boots, clogs will serve as a nice alternative among your trendy fall footwear assortment. But enough chitchat—time to shop the trend.
