leveland checking in! One of my regular readers from the Buckeye State, Kim, has been faithfully stopping by my inbox over the past few months with reports from the field. And an occasional photo, too. I apologize for not passing along the chitchat sooner! Kim's apparently been busy clog shopping, if the e-mail messages I've received are any indication:
a pair from Sven's (dark moss green suede with black base)
a pair of Sanitas (closed back antique brown oiled nubuck with black base)
a pair of Sandgrens clogs, a pair of Bordeaux colored "Stoten" clogs
a second pair of Sandgrens clogs, an olive green pair of "Bergen" clogs
a pair of Troentorp dark brown DaVinci clogs with a dark brown base
And then there's the occasional nugget of news or shoe review. Kim's says that new Bordeaux pair of Sandgrens clogs "turned out to be the most beautiful clogs I had ever owned!" And that second pair from the same maker "were every bit as beautiful as the first!" I also learned from this fellow clog lover that there are new leathers being offered on the Troentorp clogs website.
Which led to my own discovery of new feature they offer. You can view their offerings of wooden goodness organized by color! (No, don't click where it says "Click here." You have to go to the Troentorp site to do that.)
Interestingly, great clog minds think alike. Kim wrote to point me in the direction of Etsy retailer JackieLoveClogs right around the time I was preparing to interview the inventive designer behind those delightful shoes for this blog. (You can see the feature article on Jackie Leggett and her colorful footwear on ECHID here.)
But I also learned from Kim about a clog addict from Copenhagen who frequently gives the world a glimpse of her vivid fashion sense on Pinterest here. Allow me to introduce you to Sandra Walli. That's just a screen capture below, and it doesn't do justice to the variety on view on Sandra's page. You really should go take a peek.
And just for good measure, Kim also sent along an action shot of those new dark moss green Sven's Clogs being put to good use last fall. Yes, clogs are wonderful to walk on. But there's something to be said for just lounging around with your feet up wearing a pair, too!
