Full disclosure: I’m not head-over-heels in love with fall’s all-encompassing boho trend. I adore how it looks on the runway, on the racks, on my friends and colleagues, and on the various street-style stars I’ve seen during Fashion Week, but fringed everything and floppy hats aren’t for me.
That said, I’m a card-carrying lover of classic clogs and always have been. They certainly have a boho facet, but they also have the ability to be super-modern. Where another woman might pair the wooden-sole shoes with flares and a billowing peasant blouse, I prefer styling mine with skinny jeans or leather pants and a tailored blazer, cropped kick-flares and a chunky knit, or a long-sleeve mini dress and opaque black tights.
And it seems I’m not the only one recognizing clogs’ ability to be current: Labels like Prada, Saint Laurent, and Gucci each have recently released their own versions of the hippie staple, while modern indie brands like Rachel Comey and No. 6 release their own styles year after year.
Here, we’ve highlighted 11 pairs of classic clogs to shop this fall. Trust us, you’ll never look back.
