In Vogue‘s April issue, Sally Singer hung out with Zoe Kravitz and Olivia Thirlby while they searched high and low for clog boots.
Though no one, from Alex Wang to Opening Ceremony knew what she was talking about, Olivia insisted, “I’m bringing back the clog.”
To which we thought, “No thank you.”
And then of course they stomped their way down Chanel’s runway and forced us to think about them again. So here we are a couple of weeks later, split down the middle. Last night over post-party pizza I told Faran I’d never ever wear clogs. Ever. She gave them a resounding, “Hell yes.” (Though she’s had this debate before.)
Intern Alyssa says no, “They’re ugly and unflattering. Maybe a step up from Crocs,” and intern Kate agrees, “When I was little I had them in lots of different colors to match my outfits. But my mom dressed me, so I had no free will.”
But Abby loves it. “They make me feel crunchy and 70s and sorta Dead-heady which I always love. I loved tooling around in my mom’s when I was a kid.”
Even if they were the most comfortable shoe in the world – which they can’t be, they look miserable – I wouldn’t. Would you?
