An ode to the clog

Take a look at your front or back door. The chances are you have a pair of shoes at the door. Waiting to be worn for small jobs around the house. You may even have them on while we speak.

In this article, we’ll pay attention to the clog. Or rather; an ode to the clog. Those familiar with this great footwear will agree: clogs (or mules, as we like to call them at Wolky) are one of the most versatile shoes you could ever buy.  

Working from home? Clogs on. Walking the dog? Clogs on. Want to run an errand? Clogs on. Taking the trash out? Clogs on. Especially now that most of us are working from home, the value of this fantastic shoe has increased. First of all, because of how fast you can put these shoes on (in no time!). But, Wolky’s clogs have a lot more to offer. In this article, we’ll explain all of the advantages of this “ode to the clog”.

Wolky's clogs

The origin of the clog

Clogs originate in – how could it be otherwise – the old-fashioned wooden clog. Already in the Middle Ages, men discovered the convenience of this sturdy model that supported the feet well. Although the footwear has now undergone a considerable transformation, you can still see the facial features of the wooden clog. But what makes this footwear so special?

Sloppy seconds

Many people have shoes at home that they wear around the house. Often these are slippers, flip-flops, or worn-out old shoes. When you think about how often you actually wear these shoes, you soon realize that this is more than you think.

So, isn’t it strange that we use cheap slippers for this? As if our feet in and around the house suddenly want to settle for shoes that offer no support at all. As if our feet at home suddenly no longer need support. But, trust us: nothing could be further from the truth. Especially in these places, it is most important to wear the right footwear.

Wolky's clogs

The name itself reveals the inspiration behind this style: the traditional Dutch clog.

Even at home, your feet are worth your attention

It’s time that we give our feet the attention they deserve, even around the house. Unlike other shoes that you can wear in and around the house, Wolky clogs actually offer support. They support your feet, are nice and soft, and available in many cool colors and prints. That is far from all: many of our clogs have a removable footbed. Ideal for those who have orthotics. This way you can also experience your personal support at home. In addition, Wolky clogs last a long time and are even suitable for wearing outdoors. How about at work?

Clogs for work

Whether you work in the medical sector, as a gardener, or have another profession where it is handy to be able to quickly put on and take off your shoes: the clog offers a solution. It’s important that the shoes offer considerable support, especially at work. Over the years you must have noticed that good footwear helps you further. We collected our favorite clogs for work here in one overview. A nice clog for the workplace is Wolky’s ProClog. This clog is not only fantastic, but we’ve also equipped the shoe with handy technical gadgets. For example, the clog is anti-static and anti-slip and you can also exchange the footbed for your own arch supports. Isn’t that ideal?!

This multifunctional clog is not only extremely comfortable, the shoe is also provided with extra technical aspects.

  1. Ik heb de PRO-Clog! Echt geweldige klomp. Ik heb ‘m bij de achterdeur staan en schiet er zo in om buiten in de tuin wat te doen.
    Vroeger had ik de Roll-Clog. Jammer dat die niet meer verkocht wordt. Prachtig design.
    maar deze PRO-Clog is ook een toppertje!

Anyone who has custom-made soles may find it a challenge to find shoes with interchangeable footbeds. This may be even more challenging during the summer months: many flip-flops and sandals have fixed footbeds, making it impossible to swop for your own soles. Read about Wolky’s solution!
