The best clogs were expensive. I remember paying $65.00 for a pair of European clogs in size 36. Mine were full-shoe clogs (they had backs on them rather than open or straps). I had them in gray, navy, brown and a bright tan. My friends called my tan clogs my "duck shoes". I loved wearing them with my Levi cords and my tight ski-style turtlenecks and my ski sweaters.

The clogs with the brass thing nailed to the front of them. They were so heavy. In an attempt to get her clogs out of the way, my friend opened the door to the basement, threw her clogs down the steps and shut the door, only to hear her dad cussing. He was walking by at the precise moment the 50lb. clogs were sailing down the steps and hit him on the side of the head. Ahhhh, the memories.

I begged my mom for clogs and she would never buy them for me. I finally saved my money and bought a pair. She kept hiding them and tried to throw them away several times I don't know why she hated them so. Now most of my shoes are sort of like clogs or mules. She laughs she said I never got over her not buying the clogs!

I bought mine from the shoe store - Thom McCann. In my family, we got 2 pairs of shoes a year, but I made sure I got what all the kids were wearing.

I was allowed a new pair every spring which I wore with almost anything all summer mostly with bare feet. Remember how exciting it was to go shopping for them having to choose the colour of the year. Being european they were the kind H. Stowe describes above. Remdember that the mother of the girl next door would not let me into their house on my bare feet straight out of the clogs. Well, we soon found others to play, poor girl she was an only child.

Forgot to tell you that my best pair were red with green flashes on them and thick, soft rubber soles underneath. I had to beg my mother for them but they were well worth it I looooooved them.

Not many people wear real clogs these days but this website has a huge assortment of different styles. Do not know if they ship outside of Europe though.

I graduated highschool in 1983 I still have my clogs Anatomy and MIA clogs. I still have my Zodiac leather boots that I wore in higschool over twenty six years with big long flare skirts and the layered looks. The good old days are missing when things fit.

They had wooden platform bottoms for the most part & usually the leather was tooled w/ designs.

I got my first pair of Bastad clogs in the late 70's and have never looked back. I get strange looks from some men but only positive comments from women. I just wish that clogs would come back into style like they were in ths 70's.

I borrowed my first pair from the cute neighbor girl who wore them to mow the grass. They looked so sexy on her feet. They had 4" heels and a 1" platform. I asked her if I could try them on and she said that I could keep them if i wanted to. That started my obsession with clogs. I still have her clogs and wear them. She became my first girlfriend and loved to see me wearing her clogs when we went mudding together.

I had several pairs...the real ones...wood soles and small heels. They has little air holes in the leather on top. I wore my white pair when I worked in a hospital - those and my good ole Dr Scholls! I was called the noisy girl with the clogs as they made quite a racket up down hospital corriders!

I love wearing clogs as a guy. I think they look cool on guys. I wear only the original clogs from the 70's and 80's- always san socks. Wish they would make today's clogs with better quality!!!

my mom said no clogs because, well, it is true they rot in the snow.

Started wearing wood/leather clogs in high school in the late 70s.Not very many guys wore clogs, mostly the girls. Loved the clopping sound echoing in the school hallways! Always wear clogs with bare feet, it just feels so good. Love love love clogs, even today.
