Much like the metaphor used to divvy up the bill, this trend leaves a bad taste in my mouth. Clogs are no doubt a strong trend for Spring, as models stomped down the runway in Holland’s national shoe. Over the holidays I had plenty of time to ponder this trend (DEEP, I know!) and the question I kept coming back to is why? Why would come spring, after 7 months of unsightly winter boots, would one want to keep feet under wraps? Why ruin a fresh spring pedicure? Why would one want to stomp around town in heavy wooden shoes? Why would one want look like a milkmaid?
We’ve done clogs. They were called Crocs. They were hideous. The company went bust. Dutch Treat? This spring, I’m watching my waistline.
