They will be hated by your SO and questioned by your best friend, but they will fall. Clogs originated in Europe in the early 1800s. They were originally made for dancing, and were mostly worn by the lower classes of society at that time. Clogs have been a staple of many wardrobes for the past few centuries, and probably even longer, because they are easy to wear, last a long time, and just plain quirkiness.
I urge you to give these a chance, regardless of whether you’re obsessed or just trying to find the right balance between love and hatred.
