There are few shoe choices that are as divisive as clogs. As the Birkenstock and UGG boots that came before them, the equally controversial footwear trend is back for Fall 2022. Dries Van Noten, Celine and Hermès all showed clogs on their respective Fall/Winter 2022 runways, and like most fashion trends, they’ve already hit stores – and celebrities, editors and influencers can’t help but wear them. It makes sense. Although the best clogs for fall may seem difficult to style, the right style is really just a great fashionable substitute for sneakers. (Plus, they’re just as comfortable.)
Content Creator and Brand Consultant Kellie Brown is a big believer in the trend, as she’s been known to pair clogs with everything from a knit cutout dress to jeans and a tee. “I say whatever style you want,” she says. “I’m into the unserious juxtaposition of a summery dress that gains longevity through layers of cork, clogs with comfy socks, a baseball cap, and a too-chic, over-chic little purse.”
She’s not the only one following the trend. Ahead, the best clogs to buy for fall and beyond.
