Here we have a line of clogs designed for the truly practical among us. You need a pair of sturdy shoes to keep your feet planted firmly on the basement floor while you're sorting the laundry? A pair that'll take you securely through the undergrowth as you navigate the sidewalk from your back door to your garage? A pair that'll protect your toes from falling cereal boxes and bags of potato chips during your next grocery store run? These could be the clogs for you!
The Georgia Boot Company has long been known for its rugged, no-nonsense footwear. Their website proudly touts the fact that they've been making all manner of work boots and work shoes for over 60 years. Though they do gloss over the fact that while they're named Georgia Boot, they actually have their offices in Nelsonville, Ohio. I'm not sure what became of this line of clogs for men and women that they manufactured and marketed once upon a time. One faithful Every Clog Has Its Day reader recalls spotting them first in the early 2000s on a shopper at the supermarket. She informed our fellow clog fan of the brand which then led to a brief flurry of stockpiling on his part. Apparently, that hoarding instinct proved valuable considering that now this style is nowhere to be found on the Georgia Boot Company web site.
As always, my own inclination is to provide at least some sort of wood soled content with each day's post. While those Georgia Boot clogs are acutely sensible, they are also relatively cellulose free. Which leads me to conclude today with a comparably rugged though gloriously impractical style from the maker London Underground. Now these make me want to go out and get my hands dirty!
