I've said it before, I'll say it again. Bless the internet! Images of fabulous things to look at and to covet brought directly to your door. Now if there were only a way to make wood clogs with those 3-D printers we'll all be owning in a couple of years!
Reader Sara wrote in to say,
I'm such a fan of Reinhard Plank, their clogs are truly the best I've ever worn. Thought you'd like to know that Mona Moore now sells them on their website. I got mine here - www.monamoore.com.
And now you can, too. (Pay a visit to my original post about Reinhard Plank here.)
I also heard from an Alaska clog fan who spotted a couple of new stylse from Epaulet in their spring 2011 e-mailing, both in a unique purplish grey nubuck. I contacted co-owner Adele Berne to ask if she had more to say about her newest offering.
Oh, great! Yes, this nubuck is stunning. Sure, I could talk about this all day.
I sourced this "Ash Lilac" from Horween Tannery in Chicago, the best leather source in the United States. I worked directly with Nick Horween in finding a nubuck that would be beautiful and fashion-forward for the season. The nude look is so on trend right now and when I saw this swatch I knew it would be perfect.
The name "Ash Lilac" really says it all. It has a gorgeous pale grey tone with an undercurrent of lilac. It's a neutral without being ordinary and is really stunning on any skin tone!
We'll also be doing this in a boot and more sandals later in the season.
More varieties to come! Eyes will be kept peeled!
And finally, I noticed that Cape Clogs has added clog boots to their wide variety of wood soled footwear. And I mean that "finally" in a couple of ways. There's the gentle remonstrance to the Cape Clogs folks for taking so long to add a boot style to their line up. But there's also the more stern scolding I'm giving myself for not noticing the style sooner and telling you about before most of the available sizes are sold out. I should point out that the "finally" also works as I wrap up today's post with this final set of shoes. The VASA line of clog boots can be found on the Cape Clogs website, but because of the way they've set up their online presence, I can't link you directly to the pages. Drill down to find that for which you seek.
Just to be thorough, I should add that the VASA clog boots are currently only available in tan and red. And although they've clearly let us know that the purple and the lime are coming soon, there's no explanation for the difference in styles of heel.
[On my feet as I blog: I know you might think I'm a bit obsessed (well, duh), but for the third time in four days, I've got my new Truffle colored XRAY clogs from Bernardo Footwear on my feet. There's something strangely irresistible about wearing a fresh color of a style I already know I love and find comfortable. Pardon me while I indulge.]
