Currently Obsessed: with my new clogs from Sven Clogs! It seems one is either a lover or a hater of clogs. Clearly, I'm a lover. Comfortable. Practical. Height without instability. Oddly cute in a quirky sort of way. And in the case of Sven clogs, hand-made to order in Minnesota (which is my beloved home state, so I may be a little biased there). Oh, and I can wear them for over 6 hours of non-stop standing on me feet. Um, yes please.
I've shared my love for clogs, Sven clogs in particular, in the past. But most of my clogs belong in my summer shoe wardrobe, so one of the things on my fall Want List was a more "fall-ish" looking clog. I follow Sven's instagram, so when they introduced the peep-toe halter it went to the top of my list.
It took me almost three days to settle on a leather and color because there were 78 colors/leather options to chose from, but I finally settled on the NuBuc in Cedar which is a warm, reddish brown. I'm usually a sz. 8.5 in most brands of shoes, and the sz. 39 is what works best for me in clogs.
I'm not going to lie, Sven clogs aren't cheap. More than I'd normally spend on a pair of shoes. I planned and saved up eBay sales money for this purchase. But I've never regretted a purchase from Sven's. They're hand-made to your specifications, choosing heel-height, wood base color, and leather color. Plus, they're one of the friendliest most accommodating companies I've ever bought from (must be that "Minnesota nice" people always talk about).
Which is why I immediately went back and ordered this same style in black leather.
What can I say, when I like something I really like it.
