At first, I thought: "Chanel, what are you doing?" but I must admit that seeing clogs everywhere, from catwalks to the streets, made me appreciate the trend, even though I still haven't yielded to it.
There are several styles of clogs, and each of our members chose the model that suited them the most: regular clogs, à la Chanel, or open toes, very high or on the contrary almost flat clogs...Surely, there is a pair for you too!

"I was not sure about this trend when I saw it at Chanel, but now I cannot take them off my feet! They are sooo comfortable, and I'd wear them with every outfit."

"I think clogs are amazing. All my life I've been trying to walk on heels but everytime it hurts like hell. I just can't get used to it, unfortunately. But with these clogs, it's like walking on clouds. No pain and no twisted ankles.
I'm from the Netherlands and the Netherlands are known for bicycles, windmills, cheese and CLOGS. So for a real Dutchie it's extra special to wear this type of shoes. And I really like how Chanel introduced this clogs like an evolution of forgotten shoes.

But, I think you have to combine the clogs really well otherwise you look like a farmer. I would combine them with some summer dresses, boyfriend jeans or with some leggings."

"I wore clogs when I was a teenager, more than ten years ago, when they were in fashion. Afterwards I forgot about them, but now, cause they are in fashion again and I see them everywhere, I thought it would be nice to have a pair of clogs again to wear with floral dresses.
I don't wear them just because they're in fashion, in fact I don't like all kind of clogs (just the simple ones that look like the originals from the 70s) and I don't think clogs go well with all outfits. I just like them with hippie and bohemian looks"

"At the beginning, when i saw clogs at Chanel fashion show, I wasn't very enthousiastic, but then Clogs as sandals appeared and I fell in love!! So i'm now a big fan of clogs as sandals but not yet as 'CLOGS' per say!"

"My opinion on the clog trend? Well at the beginning, I have to be honest, I wasn't really thrilled, but as time passed by I was more and more delighted with them! If you ask me, on the right girl, with the right clothes on, they can put an energy into the whole outfit! It's something different than gladiators and standard heels. The only thing you have to know is to walk in them!"

"I bought these clogs waaaay before the current f my closet and give them a new lease of life. They're reminiscent of Sweedish hasbeens, which are quite practical clogs. I love the high-fashion clogs, but they are VERY hard to walk around it, these are perfect for everyday wear."

"The shoes I'm wearing are the closest thing I have to clogs. I consider any shoe with a solid wooden sole, a clog. Ever since I saw them on the CHANEL runway I've been craving a pair. Every fashionista out there has a pair in her closet...it's the hottest shoe trend this summer season."
