This 70s Shoe is Back and Better Than Ever

Daisy Jones, eat your heart out.

Last Updated on May 22, 2023

We really love ugly shoes right now, don’t we?

First it was chunky loafers, then dad sandals and fisherman sandals, and now we’re adding clogs to the ever-growing list of ugly-but-cute shoes we’re obsessed with.

These classic shoes have been appearing on the feet of the world’s most stylish women lately, including Kendall Jenner, Rosamund Pike and Rihanna, as well as on the Fendi, Ports 1961, Ferragamo, JW Anderson and Balenciaga runways – surefire signs of a trend that’s about to become massive.

The return of the clog comes as searches for 70s fashion surge, with huge aviator sunglasses and cowboy boots among the retro pieces that are proving super popular right now. We might just have the Amazon Prime series Daisy Jones & the Six to thank for that.

Which brand is best for clogs?

High fashion brands like Chloé, JW Anderson and Bottega Veneta have all dropped their own iterations of clogs this year, and as you’d expect, they’re all gorgeous. But we can’t ignore what the high street offers as well. 

Swedish Hasbeens has a selection of killer clogs (their speciality), and one of the reigning brands for clogs has to be Birkenstock. Whether you prefer the luxurious feel of suede or the durability of leather, you should give the Birkenstock Boston a go.

Is it OK to wear clogs?

Clogs are more than OK to wear, especially in 2023.

These versatile and stylish shoes are über comfortable, casual and classic, and their easy slip-on and slip-off design makes them ideal for people on the go.

With a variety of materials and designs available, from classic leather to modern patterns, finding a pair that matches your personal style is easy.

Do women still wear clogs?

Of course! Women are still wearing clogs, and they’ve made a fashionable comeback in recent years. These shoes were a 70s staple, but now they’re available in a variety of styles and price points to suit every taste and budget. 

Clogs are not just stylish but also practical, providing comfort for all-day wear. Celebrities and fashion influencers have embraced this retro footwear trend, indicating that clogs are here to stay.
