Once again, those Scandinavians are ahead of the curve.
I first noticed that clogs were coming back when Alexa Chung appeared on the March cover of Vogue UK. Well, apparently the Swedes noticed in 2008 when the annual Trend Award Gala in Stockholm recognized Swedish Hasbeens shoes.
I'm still not entirely sure how I feel about the reemergence of clogs, but the vintage inspiration behind the Hasbeens and their seemingly high-quality construction leaves me intrigued. The Web site even recommends resoling the shoes and treating them with olive oil - these are shoes that are meant to last!
These Jodhpur boots are kind of calling to me. Maybe they'll ease me into the clog trend.
And even if i never latch onto clogs, I certainly wouldn't pass up the rainbow of leather belts and saddle bags.
