I had a pair of classic clogs in high school, they were a solid black pair from Aldo and I wore them 2 years straight until they were completely stretched out. Then I found 5 inch (!!) vintage brown peep toe wedges that I wore until the straps gave out. They were the perfect compliment to my halloween disco costume in Grade 11 since I also had red velvet pants and a gold mirrored top. The best thing about clogs was going ‘clop, clop, clop’ down the high school halls, I remember it drove everyone nuts. While posting Ellenitza’s as a Divine Dresser I noticed the fabulous clogs she was wearing were tagged as ‘Swedish Hasbeens’. My first thought was they were vintage Swedish shoes that I’d have no chance at getting my hands on. Now I wasn’t all wrong, reading their about us page tells the tale of discovering 300 pairs of vintage clogs. And their store finder says I can find Swedish Hasbeens in Vancouver at Gravity Pope and Umeboshi, on it.
My first pair were the same shape as the Hasbeens Slip In Stitched, except they were studded not stitched.
