et's see. What should I write about today? Hmmmmmm. I could discuss the nutritional value of omega 3 fats in fish. Or the relative merits of used Nissan Pathfinders. Or the adorableness of hobbits. And while these were all topics that crossed my mental threshold in the course of my Monday, I think I'll fall back on a topic that's an old favorite: clogs.
What do you say to that?
New shoes! New shoes!
Fresh photos from three of us here in the ECHID community: new shoes that we're pretty geeked about.
First, regular reader London Lady sent along this shot of her new red buc Bikers! from The Lindsey Line from Sven Clogs. I was tempted to crop the image to zero in on the shoes, but then I took a look at that dramatic mirror!
Melody (one of my cats) sends her approval. It was hard getting her out out of the picture, thus the cat tail. My other cat Helen likes them too.
Next, regular reader Melissa took time to share this shot of her own new purple buc Bikers! from The Lindsey Line from Sven Clogs. Surprisingly, neither Emma Peel or Keek, her cats, was anywhere to be seen when the camera came out.
Then, I have to revel a moment in a new pair of Koolaburra clogs I picked up last week. I am still going "OMG!" to myself every time I spot my Nadine clog booties from this maker in my closet. They are awesome. But it is summer, after all, so they haven't been surfacing in the On My Feet As I Blog lately. As a result, I've been jonesing for the Farrah, the slip on clog Koolaburra released on the same sole about a year ago. But at their regular retail prices I couldn't commit. Thank goodness fashions come and go and retailers occasionally have to clean house. When the Farrah dropped to $55.00 on Amazon.com ("You save $165.42 (75%)"), I had to say, "Yes, please!"

A Shearling Clog Boot Question
Autumn is coming! Autumn is coming! I guess all my years of schooling make me look forward to the season as a time of new beginnings. Which infuses the cooler months with their own unique excitment. But for those of who live for the knit tops and taller boots that autumn allows, summer can't end too soon.
Regular reader Kelly is feeling the pull of autumn. Just the other week she wrote to ask for my input on some shearling clog boots she's been considering. I'm providing my feedback below, but please feel free to chime in with your own insights via Comments.
Would you send over ANY photos you have of Sven shearling tall clog boots and ANY of No 6 shearling tall clog boots (not your thigh-high ones).
I've seen some pix of red ones on your blog (maybe someone elses?), black ones (daughters?), maybe brown or green? I'm trying to gauge height of the boot in both brands. also, I think you mentioned you don't wear socks with them, does that mean the shearling is on the footbed too? [Ed. note: yes, both Sven and No. 6 line their footbeds with shearling.]
I am so ready to purchase for this fall/winter.
Thanks so much for any help you can give for a fellow clog lover.

UPDATE: Here's a side by side comparison shot of the Sven clog boot and the No. 6 clog boot.
[On my feet as I blog: well, I did have my Ronson boots from Jeffrey Campbell on my feet for most of the day, but I changed outfits just to show off my new Farrah clogs from Koolaburra, and they are what's on my feet as I blog.]
