Let me start by telling you that I was a child in the ’70s, not a child OF the ’70s (which means two distinctly different things). And in the ’70s, clogs were all the rage. But I wasn’t allowed to have clogs. My father refused to let me have a pair of clogs because he thought they would, as he put it, “walk like Frankenstein.”
Now that’s just plain ridiculous.
So, every chance I got, which was a few times a week, I would wear my aunt’s clogs when I was at her house, from the time I arrived until the minute I had to leave. I would walk outside and up and down the street, to show off “my” clogs. I would stomp all over the house, wearing them, loving the sound they made as I made my way from tile to hardwood and back and forth. Oh, how I loved those clogs. But I never owned a pair. Never ever.
Until now, thanks to Ugglebo.
Ugglebo? How do you even say that? Easy: oog-le-boo.
Uggglebo hand-crafts ALL their clogs in Sweden, and have since 1965, when the company was created by a man named Sven. Sven, it turns out, had a “vision of fashion and comfort coming perfectly together as one.” I think I would have really liked Sven.
So, when I got the opportunity to review a pair of Ugglebo Clogs, I was like a giddy schoolgirl. And, boom, the pair I absolutely loved arrived…
Isn’t that adorable?? They put a personalized message right on the box. *sigh*
And this is what I was thrilled to release from the package…
That’s the Tokyo Clog (notice the low heels…perfect for me, since I have back issues and stability issues (due to an ankle injury, among other things). I love love LOVE the color (called “Nature”), the quality, the stitching, and the little owl design on the side. LOVE THEM!
Oh man. How I love these clogs. Love love LOVE. They look great, feel great, and they are clogs that you will ooh and ahh over. No, seriously. And other clog people (we’re a certain breed, I think) are going to be mighty jealous of you when you’re sporting this killer clogs.
Trust me…you will love the quality and craftsmanship of Ugglebo Clogs as well…and wait til you see the variety of clogs they have to offer! It’s wild — there are clogs you didn’t even know existed! They have high heel clogs and wedges, boots, mid-heel clogs, and low-heel clogs. Like these, for example…
I know, right? Don’t take my word for it…check them out for yourself. You will NOT be disappointed. Ugglebo Clogs are the bee’s knees. And, now I have my clogs. My very first pair of clogs. Thanks to Ugglebo. I almost want to cry.
