Tried and true clog fans know the Sven name. This venerable brand has been manufacturing wood soled shoes in a variety of styles for 37 years. By and large they stick to the traditional shape and silhouette of the standard Swedish clog, but they've also been know to offer an assortment of clog sandals and clog boots as well...with many of their styles being constructed with higher heels than your usual Scandinavian shoe. So when regular reader Tea sent me an e-note to ask,
Have you seen Sven's newly updated website? I'm so excited they've got some new styles!
I knew I had to dig deeper.
The thing is: this rabbit hole goes pretty deep! The Home page for Sven lists seven product categories.
Select any of the main women's categories, and you'll discover a feast of riches: 54 different styles under Women's High Heel, 145 different styles under Women's Low & Medium Heel, 59 styles under BRITTANY Clogs, 37 under Winter Boots, Clogs & Slippers, even Men's has 12 different styles. And these are just basic clog styles. Pick a shoe, say, the
Tie Shoe - Tiny Perforations - Medium Heel - Non Bendable Base - Style # 5723.
Under that style alone, you get to select between 2 different colors of wooden base (up to size 43, guys), 5 different styles of leather types (metallic, Nu Buc, patent, smooth, or suede), and up to 28 choices of colors or patterns. And that's for a single clog style! Can you say, "Wow!"?
It would be hopeless for me to attempt to document the variety that Sven is offering here, but I will post a couple of the more eye-catching styles I spotted. Pay them a visit and test your will to resist!
Plain T-Strap - Medium Heel - Non Bendable Base - Style # 7623
Silver Heart - Dexter Collar - Medium Heel- Style # 114223
11" Clog Boot - Brittany Shearling & Leather Boot - Low Heel Style # 90113-11
[On my feet as I blog: split toe tabi style canvas boots from Irregular Choice. Nope, not a pair of clogs. But the weather was warm and wonderful today and I needed to throw on something quickly to get out in it!]
