I love all things Rachel Comey, not just her clogs, but they do hold a special place in my heart. Because Rachel Comey’s Clogs are SO GOOD, and I love clogs. Sadly, though, I don’t own any of the three pairs of Rachel Comey clogs I bought anymore. I had two pairs of the Beaufort “bow” clogs, one in black and one in taupe, and also a pair of clog sandals. Sold them all. The Beaufort clogs I loved (they were so comfortable, and incredibly lightweight), but I never really liked how they looked with my larger calves. Now that they’re smaller (my calves), I wish I had the clogs back.
That’ll teach me for getting rid of stuff. No, just kidding. I didn’t love them ENOUGH on me to keep them around. But I do love the Idolan clog. In fact, I wanted those to be my summer shoe purchase but I just couldn’t swing it. And then I thought I’d wait for them to go on sale at Shopbop, but they haven’t. They are on sale everywhere else (on Rachel Comey & Totokaelo, and bird), but I don’t have the cash for that right. And anyway, I just used some credit at Shopbop to buy a new pair of Swedish Hasbeens.
But back to Rachel Comey. Her shit is expensive. And I can’t say necessarily that it’s worth the price, because I’ve never paid full price, but I can say that the clogs seem to be even lighter weight than No6 or Swedish Hasbeens; I was always astonished at how light they were. And light shoes means easier walking. They were always comfortable too. Except the sandals. The straps on the sandals tore my feet up. But that was an exception. And obviously, people swear by her Mars booties. I still don’t have a pair of those, but I don’t like the way my legs look in ankle booties, so there’s that.
What are your thoughts on clogs? Rachel Comey clogs? Have I converted all of you yet??
Oh, and in part of the teeny tiny little re-design I did here i tried to consolidate all the “clogs” posts into one category – Clogs.
