Clogs have been having a moment, and they’re not done yet. The wooden clog has a history that spans centuries, from the fjords of 16th-century Scandinavia to the feet of ABBA in the 1970s. Since ‘70s trends, like flared pants and crocheted tops, have made their way onto Instagram and TikTok in 2021, it’s only natural that the wooden clog would follow.
Louis Vuitton and Anna Sui have already introduced the footwear style on the runway, and now big brands and indie designers alike have followed suit. Brother Vellies, Isabel Marant, Loeffler Randall, Rachel Comey, and more all offer unique takes on the wooden-heeled shoe, ranging from fun prints and cozy textures to shiny metallic fabrics and vibrant hues. The one thing they all have in common? That classic Swedish wooden heel.
