Clogs are in for Spring. Discuss.

Clogs. I don't know that I've ever worn a pair in my life. I mean, yikes.

I was discussing them and their on-the-cusp-of-being-the-next-big-thing status the other day with my friend Casey, co-owner of The Perfect Pair in Nashville, which happens to have a clog or two in stock. We said something to the effect of, "No offense to nurses, but clogs just remind me of those nursing shoes Danskos." Casey even relayed that her nurse friend told her that on nights where she did NOT need to be going out after work, she makes sure she is wearing her Danskos to the hospital that day. That's how horrible clogs are! My hair girl Valerie even apologized to me the other day for wearing Danskos at Fruition while cutting my hair!

Obviously I am harboring an anti-clog bias and some others of y'all are too, but gosh if Alexa Chung, current super it-girl, doesn't look adorable in this pair by Chanel over there on the left. Get ready, I've seen clogs referred to as 2010's version of the Ugg--you know they're ugly as pure sin, but dang if you don't want to sell a kidney for some. It's weird, I tell you, but I swear I'm getting clog fever. I'll keep you posted. Until then, here are some that I'm considering.

Charlie Platform Clog, Freepeople.com for $148


Seanna Closed Toe Clogs, Topshop.com for $135


Maybe a tad Dr. Scholls-esque, but a little easier to stomach?
BCBGMax Azria at Piperlime.com for $185

I feel like clogs might fall into the category of "I can't pull those off but 'she' can" - meaning if you have the fever, own it! but know how to wear them and do some homework first...? but then again, this rule prob applies to most stuff. and no joke, there is a crock commercial on tv right now - as in for every day wear... omg.
