Last week, I wrote a post on shoe trends for spring 2022, and one of my favorites is the clog. These are the perfect transition shoe for this in-between season when we’re tired of our boots but it’s too soon to break out the sandals, and I found two great options at Zappos.
The details on this tee are really cool. I love the raw seaming, ribbed cuffs and thumbholes, and frayed accents for that super casual, lived-in appeal.
Unfortunately, the Red Ribbon color I’m wearing is no longer available, but there are lots of other options. This tee runs true to size; I have the small.
I like how the Steve Madden Hilde Mules in tan suede complement the retro vibe of the top, and the rivet trim and buckle are fun details. They have a 33⁄4 inch heel with a 3⁄4 inch platform, so the heel drop is only 3 inches.
I find these clogs surprisingly comfortable, especially since they have a suede trim around the vamp of the shoe, so they feel smooth and soft against the foot. They run true to size, or size down if in between. I have the 7.5.
I also ordered the Steve Madden Brooklyn Clog to try, and they work with this outfit as well.
They aren’t as soft against the foot as the Hilde Mules, but they have a slightly lower heel with a heel height of 3 inches and a platform of 1 inch, making the heel drop only 2 inches.
These don’t have the fun buckle detail, but they do have square rivets and a woodgrain platform. They also come in taupe suede, cognac suede, and bone leather.
While I appreciate how the low contrast of the tan suede against my skin tone (in the first look) keeps the lower 2/3 of the outfit cohesive, I also like how the black leather and my dark hair bookend this second look. Either one works!
