Clogs have existed since the early 13th century when they first appeared in wooden form in the Netherlands. Incredibly, clogs are still in and out of fashion after 700 years. The fashion industry has revamped clogs in a variety of new iterations that, to be fair, don’t look anything like grandma’s gardening clogs (although some do, and that’s also kind of the point). Clog footwear has always been a practical gardening shoe, but they are now considered just as fashion-forward as they are comfortable.
When Birkenstock unveiled its pair of clogs, that’s when the love affair for them started. There are clogs in patterned fabrics, boucle textures, animal designs, and even wooden models with ’70s vibes. There are also waterproof rubber versions for everyday wear.
Men are starting to go beyond the standard black shoe as society grows more aware of the choices they make in clothing. For men seeking more than just a pair of formal shoes, top brands like BIRKENSTOCK have enticing options.
There are several types of platform clogs. The intentionally clumsy look has the same height-boosting effect as a lug-sole boot or high heel, but it stands out much more. This spring, platform clogs appear to be the preferred style among designers. There are numerous variations of clog shoes available in the market.
Retro wooden clogs go well with your geometric pattern outfits and vivid miniskirts. The entirely wooden clogs that emerged in the Netherlands decades earlier served as the inspiration for this form of footwear, which was seen as vital in the 1970s. The contemporary form, which frequently has a wooden heel and leather or suede uppers, is more useful for everyday wear.
The most useful type of clog shoes for men and women are made of rubber, and wearing them is frequently related to sunny days spent in the garden. Even while rubber clogs can be worn to water plants, the material has evolved into a chic, waterproof street-style alternative.
Rubber clogs have been produced for spring by brands like UGG and Gucci, and it is suggested trying them out because they are not just cosy but are simple to clean. Stylistic experimentation is flexible because it can go nicely with sportswear or casual attire. Wearing socks with these goes without saying because these are waterproof UGG clogs and have an inbuilt detachable alternative!

Suede Leather Clogs
BIRKENSTOCK substitutes suede for the usual natural leather to give you a pair that stands out while still being oh-so-understated! This shoe will keep your feet warm all winter long thanks to its natural lambskin footbed and strap lining. These clogs are a great option whether you’re kicking back by a fire or enduring the chilly weather outside.

Birkenstock Super Birki is extremely adaptable and may be used in a variety of professional and personal contexts thanks to the vast range of colours it is offered in. This small shoe is composed of polyurethane, which is water and dirt-resistant and also resistant to oils and greases. This incredibly durable material is washable at up to 60° Celsius and effectively sterilisable.
Its durability and hygienic qualities make it perfect for kitchens, healthcare facilities, and the food industry, yet it may also be used as a useful garden clog. A moisture-wicking fabric lines the cork-latex footbed, which is anatomically contoured. It is easily washable at up to 30° Celsius and may be removed for cleaning.
Clogs seem to have made an impression everywhere in the world. In the past few years, brands like Gucci have experimented with the style. With its foam composition and Swiss-cheese look, the new Yeezy Foam Runner appears to owe a lot to the Croc. Imagine putting a Birkenstock in one of those perforations.
