I am always on the hunt for a nice pair of clogs to add to my shoe collection. When I say shoe collection, I really don’t have that many pairs of shoes– except maybe flip flops ;). Sandgrens is the Swedish Clog company that focuses on providing the most beautiful traditional Swedish clogs, high-fashion clogs, comfort shoes and clog boots in the footwear industry.
I was given the opportunity to review Sandgrens Clogs! Their clogs are always crafted using the finest leathers, wooden bases, and metal hardware available. Sandgrens mission is to give you happiness and excellence in the form of Swedish clogs.
Sangrens offers a plethora of styles and colors to choose from so the choice for me was pretty hard! However, I finally decided on the Bali Mid! The Bali Mid clog sandal offers the charm of traditional Swedish clogs but with a twist that makes it a stylish addition to Sandgrens’ Clog collection.
The Sandgrens Bali Mid are the perfect height compliment to anyone’s wardrobe. I, personally, thought that maybe these clogs that were made out of a wood base without any padding would be uncomfortable. However, I was wrong…… they’re pretty comfortable and I could wear them right away without much ‘breaking in’. The clogs also are not as heavy as I thought they would be! I was surprised at how light they were and how easy they were to walk in. It is hard for me to find a shoe with a good size heel– I am not the most graceful person when it comes to walking. Yet, the mid height of these clogs is perfect for my clumsiness. The clogs are stylish enough to be worn with a pair of capris, shorts or jeans and a cute top for a night out– or even just a trip to the local supermarket.“Some people have hobbies. We have Swedish clogs and clog boots. At Sandgrens you will find the finest collection of wood clogs online. Whether you are looking for high heeled clogs, shearling boots, clog sandals, clogs for men, nursing clogs or clog boots, we will give you the latest fashion in handmade clogs.”
Therefore, there are a few things you should have in mind when purchasing your pair of Sandgrens Clogs:
• Clogs are designed to allow your heel to “slip” when you walk, even if you have a closed back clog. It also generally takes a couple of weeks to get used to your new clogs.
• We recommend wearing them for no more than a couple of hours a day for the first week, and a half day for the next week, so that your body and clogs will adjust to each other. Give your clogs some time and you will be happy.
• Apart from the PU bases all the bases that we use are made of wood, Swedish Alder wood; a beautiful and natural material that will make your feet happy. Keep in mind that wood is a rigid material and therefore it will not stretch or bend. The bottom of the base is covered with a thin rubber sole – not only does it protect the wood; it also increases your foothold and prevents you from slipping.
• Sizing can, and most likely will vary between different styles, e.g. a high vs. low heel, or a boot vs. a sandal clog. Therefore, we recommend that you carefully read through the size chart before your purchase.
