At last. A line of clogs that won't hurt your feet!
Can you imagine? No aches in your arches. No pinching of your toes. No blister on the back of your heel from wearing a size too small. No burning in the ball of your foot from too steep an angle. Who'd have thought there could be high heeled shoes out there that would leave your feet so unscathed!
The only downside is: you can't actually wear 'em yourself.
These are, in fact, clogs designed as fashion accessories for Mattel's Barbie doll. And if her impossible proportions and roots free blonde hair weren't enough to envy, there's now the issue of wanting to raid her closet, too.
Forgive me. I'm such a clog fan, I feel my heart skip a beat looking at these molded plastic mules. Even at 1/6 scale, I'm enamored of the chunky platform and massive heel and the saucy tilt to the sole. I'll even admit that I wish they came in my size just so I could try them on. And just look at the selection. We mere humans should be so lucky!
Which leaves us with the question of what would these Barbie clogs actually be like if rendered life size? I'm thinking the legendary Famolare fiberglass clog, style name Amsterdam, comes closest. Such as this pair that sold via Worthpoint.com about 3-1/2 years ago.
(A shoe that, incidentally, I've blogged about previously here.)
