A few weeks ago, Miss M and I were imbibing at the W’s rooftop lounge when a tourist strolled past in ankle pants and clogs. M tapped my shoulder, and I silently nodded my agreement that this women was clearly deranged. Then, Miss M added, “Too bad those awful shoes are coming back into style.”
I was aghast. Clogs? Back in style? No chance!
Miss M then procured the Glamour magazine from her purse and confirmed my worst fears, the fashion powers-that-be were advocating a pro-clog position. It was like finding out that your favorite celebrity is a member of NAMBLA, devastating.
How can the fashion industry support the wearing of clogs? Especially high-heeled clogs. I mean, have you seen these?
How about these?
Or these hideous things complete with shearling insole?
How could any sane, stylish person stand up on behalf of clogs? It’s like being for the murder of baby seals, it’s just not an acceptable position. So unless you’re Dutch or you time-traveled here from 1969, don’t waste your money on a shoe that will cause your friends, family and co-workers to mock you until you cry. I’m just looking out for your fiscal and emotional well-being, we are in the middle of a recession after all.
