i like them but wondered if they were cheaper anywhere else!

CuntyBunty Sat 08-Feb-14 20:34:23

They are funky. They look well made too, but yes, I would wince at the price.

Lotta from Stockholm are similar but much cheaper.

Silver

very cool
very dear

oh they're nice but not as nice lady

Lambzig Sat 08-Feb-14 20:46:12

Nice, but make sure they are not too heavy. Heavy clogs make your feet hurt.

paperdress Sat 08-Feb-14 20:46:20

oh no- followed the link to the lotta site & have now discovered i REALLY want these shoes that i didnt know existed 5 mins ago...

I don't think the open toed ones are as cute. I have Sanita zebra print mules that I love.

I used to fight with reception class mates over a pair of them in the dressing up corner, in 1975grin

southeastastra Sat 08-Feb-14 21:03:36

oh i wonder if they will be uncomfortable i guess if they're clogs they have not give in them grin they look soo pretty though

They're like Swedish hasbeens. Clarks originals had some similar a few years ago and you can pcm them up cheaply on eBay sometimes.

Another one here who loves the Lotta clogs!

I love the Swedish hasbeens, WhereIsMyHat, but too expensive for me sad. I got nice Fly London Sandals in the sales for only about £50. The Lotta of Stockholm are gorgeous too. I'm not a fan of spindly stilettos, so the chunky shoes with a bit of height do it for me.

I want to like them. I love the front / silver but the wooden heels? I've never seen them suit anyone. I work in Shoreditch and see a lot of this style and every time if see them I think, 'Oh, has she got the styling right? Has she got the legs?' And I want it to be so. Because they should look amazing on a 21 year old gazelle.

But no. Never. And I've got slim ankles, calves and thighs with a 38 inside leg, so it ain't jealousy.

The clunky-ness. It's the clunky-ness. That's what it is. Feet are ugly. Why would you want to add to that? Shoes should either make feet look elegant, strong (and these don't IMO), or practical.

See, I like DM boots, Louboutin stilettos and (currently) Nike wedge trainers so it's not all about the 'dainty' but they just look... Orthopedic.

I'm glad I'm not the only one that thought "dressing up box" grin

I have the silver lotta clogs. I love them! They don't hurt my feet, i can wear them for hours and i think they look funky. I wear them with turned up skinnies and plain black t shirts in warm weather.

ShyGirlie Sun 09-Feb-14 09:22:59

wow, just saw swedish hasbeens. LOVING the super high peep toe ones. cant understand prices though, does anyone have a rough idea what they'd cost, and what the shippimg would be like?!? i think i would wear these every single day in the summer (hopefully sunny and dry!)

RustyBear Sun 09-Feb-14 09:34:51

Currently the exchange rate is about 10.6 Swedish kroner to the pound, so divide the prices by 10 for a very rough guide.

But if you look at the site whereismyhat linked to , there's a panel to the bottom right of each shoe's web page giving prices & shipping for various locations.

I love them! Sarah Jessica Parker is a fan - she wore them with full skirts and turned up jeans and she looked very cool. envy

MyMeMy Sun 09-Feb-14 17:17:38

Hmm, I shouldn't love the silver Hasbeens but I do! Does anyone know if they're comfortable though, anything without a cushioned insole kills the ball of my feet sad
