Nailed in Sweden

All right. I gave in. I didn't think I would succumb to the "clog fad" but yet here I am, +one pair of Swedish clogs.

I had my doubts about Hasbeens. First of all, I wasn't sure how I would feel about having a solid wood heel, platforms no less. At 3.5 inches the shoes sound high but in actuality it's not that bad because the platform is built into the toe part too. Second of all, clogs? After 1975? After 1990? What?

But actually I think Hasbeens can be pretty cute depending on how you style them. The trick is being able to modernize them for 2010. What really persuaded me to get them (despite them being on sale for less than 1/5 the reg price, I love a sale) is that the shoes are all natural. The company actually says that you can bury them in the ground and it would be all right. Don't get me wrong, they're plenty study, but made of natural leather and wood. In fact, I only just olive-oiled the heels (per instructions to protect the wood) over the weekend. I think they will weather very well and I can't wait to wear them.

Despite the wooden heel, surprisingly the shoes have been comfortable so far but I'll keep you updated.

clop clop clop.
