Yup, its mud season here in the NE and ya know what that means? CLOGS! Hate to keep beating a dead horse here, but they are the most practical shoe for our muddy spring here.
I discovered this gem of information during the spectatorship of my son's sports--having to schlep to the field made a practical shoe imperative. Clogs fit the bill because the platform sole keeps you high and dry and the leather is usually durable. Something our ancestors discovered years ago. Clogs kept the wearer out of the mud, and whatever other debris there was on the road.
Of course, any platform shoe will do the same thing, but clogs tend to be more utilitarian in their style. The tricky thing is not getting them TOO utilitarian looking! Otherwise, I may look like I am tending sheep on the Swedish countryside. The best clogs are the ones that are more refined--less clumsy looking. And the wooden soles? They may be too hard on my feet--so I look for something softer.
Any other shoe solutions to mud season?
