** 2014 Holiday Gift Guide **
I’ve been wearing clogs since the age of 12 and I am now 46 years old. If you opened up my closet door you would see at least 30 pairs of different clogs in there. Some I have owned for 15+ years and others I have picked up more recently. Am I a clog addict? You bet, I am!!!
I first fell in-love with clogs as a pre-teen because they were fashionable and trendy at the time. Over the years, I learned to love them for the superior comfort that they offer. Before I retired from nursing, clogs is all I would wear at the hospital. After my retirement in the 1990’s, I found that clogs were my preferred type of shoe due to back pain & hip pain. Once I had my hip replacement last year, they are definitely the first shoe I pull out of my closet when I need to go out.
The reason I am giving you a little bit of history is because I know clogs!!! I mean, I really, really, really know clogs! I have owned tons of different brands, styles, colors, fabrications, sole types, etc. You ladies can have your handbags but I am keeping my fetish with clogs!
Let me introduce you all to Superior Clogs who sells some of the best Swedish clogs that I have ever owned! Yes, ever owned!!! They are designed for an orthopedically sound fit, made of long lasting alder wood, the clogs are made exclusively by Troentorp-Bastad Toffel, Scandinavia’s leading clog manufacturer. For over 100 years, they have been making superior clogs that women just crave for!
For the review I received a pair of the Raphael Original Clogs to review for all of you in the gorgeous black cherry color. It is the perfect color for Fall, Winter and the Holidays…definitely grab this color if you already have black and/or brown clogs as it is just gorgeous, very rich!
They have the original alder wood bottom with a nonslip sole. I love the adjustable buckle so I can get a customized fit. Luckily for me, I have a medium width foot on most days of the week. However, I sometimes swell up & retain fluid and it’s nice to know I can adjust them when that occurs.
They are made out of genuine wet-lasted cowhide leather and then nailed to the alder wood bottom. Those nails are spot-on perfectly spaced too! I would estimate that the back heel is about 2″ high and the front is about 1″ high and they fit super comfortably on my feet. I could walk miles upon miles in these clogs and never get sore feet!
These clogs can be worn casually with jeans or a skirt…or dress them up for the office with slacks, a dress or a skirt. They are very rich looking and can go either way which makes them a workhorse in your footwear wardrobe. They come in a variety of different colors too!
I have been sporting my new clogs around town for almost a month now and everyone (and I mean EVERYONE) who sees them asks me about them. I am super happy to tell them all about Superior Clogs!
