Although these aren’t my first clogs, until now I haven’t had a quality pair. I was sent the Sandgrens Clog Sandal in their “Milan” style to review. The clog is available in more than 10 colors (including a gorgeous rose pattern), but I received them in red.
These clog sandals are made of Swedish Alder wood and vegetable leather. The shoes are fastened together with staples. I thought it might be uncomfortable walking on a wood base, but I’ve found these shoes surprisingly comfortable, even after several hours on my feet. Although I think higher heels are sexier, this low heel is more practical for running around after my toddler.
My right foot will start to feel a little stiff and sore after about an hour. (That’s my problem foot, and, unfortunately, it reacts that way in all of my shoes, except my runners.)
Although you could wear these clog sandals with summer dresses or jeans, I like to pair mine with capris or a short jean skirt.
Confession time. One of the reasons I love these clogs, is that the sandals hide my toes. I rarely have time for pedicures anymore! If, unlike me, you’d rather show off your well-groomed toes, Sandgrens does have several toe-baring styles, like the Caspian and Bali Mid.
The Sandgrens company has an interesting back story that you can read on their website. The Sandgrens brand was founded in the mid-1800s, and their clogs are still made in Sweden, using time-honored techniques.
I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
