As soon as the February 2010 VOGUE came out, with Alexa emblazoned on the front cover, wearing those faithful original CHANEL clogs, I think it was fair to say, we knew there and then, clogs would be massive this Summer. So, I think we have Alexa Chung to blame for the invasion of clogs in everyones SS10 collections and all the many CHANEL imitations we’ve already seen hitting the high street.
So, to clog or not to clog, that is the question? Take a look at my clog picks…
These are the original CHANEL clogs as seen on the SS10 fashion week runway.
‘Seanna‘, £68.00, Topshop.
(Topshop’s take on the CHANEL clog (not too sure how they get away with it, but hey ho!)

Fur-lined Clogs by Miu Miu, $849.
Jimmy Choo and Marni’s take on Clogs.

(The studded sling back clog is pretty much the modern take on the Clog really).
SO! Will your Summer be all clogged up with clogs?
PS – I hear that Clogs are a little bit tough… I found the below tips from lovely blogger, 5 inches and up.
I also have to share the best shoe fitting trick, that I had to use on these. Some of you may have heard of it, works best on leather/suede shoe that feels too tight and rub your feet..
1. wear the shoes on bare feet inside your house for a while so you know which part rubs and may cause blisters
2. buy moleskin tape/ fabric bandaid from the pharmacy and wrap a strip around the sore spot
3. soak your feet in water then dry them leaving the tape wet
4. wear your shoes with the wet tape on and the tight parts will mold perfectly to your feet, without stretching the whole shoe.
