Feeling Clogish

Fashion Facts: Traditionally Clogs were worn by workers for protection while working in mines, farms and factories. They were also once wooden slippers worn for Clogging, a traditional European folk dance similar to tap dancing. 
"Clogs" now commonly mean:comfortable slip on shoe. Now I am a firm believer that if someone declares "your shoes look so comfortable!" You are wearing the wrong shoes.  

Clogs always have been and always will be a "clunky" shoe; however, this years Clogish Wooden Sandal is perfectly suited to the 70's styling seen for Spring Summer 2011.

These shoes might only be picture perfect but are very accurate according to this definition of Clogs:
A heavy block, as of wood, fastened to a person or beast to impede movement.
